Peach Lemonade | Summer Drinks

Peach Lemonade

Finally I can breathe. Yes the kids birthday parties are done successfully. We had totally 6 parties for the kids. Even completed the job sorting of pictures and posting it for the parents. I missed the blog so much and as I did not have the time or energy to post something. Even this month is going to be hectic for different reasons. I hope I have the energy to cross that hurdle too. On the cooking front I'm kind of playing low. Though I cook everyday I do not cook anything new or experiment anything in my kitchen. I thought of making a post and wanted to keep it simple. As I have fell in love with simple lemonades. I'm sharing the peach lemonade with you all today.

Peaches is one of my favorite summer fruit. I load my refrigerator with this fruit and enjoy it everyday when I feel snacky. I was planning to make a fruit based lemonade and wanted to try my hands on peach. I like my peaches ripe and unripe. I had only unripe peaches left so I adjusted the sugar level accordingly. If you have ripe peaches then you can reduce the sugar level and your drink will have orange tinge in it. I simply loved the lemonade with my favorite fruit in it. When you are entertaining people you can definitely have this drink in your menu. Your guests would love it !!
