I like to look at this recipe as a base, or a method, rather than a precise thing.  For instance, you might find that you want more peach flavor, so feel free to add more peaches, or more sugar if you like a sweeter lemonade.  You could also use the same method with different fruits to create your own amazing lemonade concoctions!  Strawberry or watermelon lemonade anyone?

Ingredients
RASPBERRY PEACH PUREE:
  • 4 fresh peaches, pitted, then diced into large chunks
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 1/4 cups water
SIMPLE SYRUP:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
LEMONADE:
  • 7 cups cold water
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh lemon juice (from approximately 4 lemons)
  • ice cubes
  • additional raspberries, for garnish optional
  • additional peach slices, for garnish optional
  • mint sprigs, for garnish optional
Instructions
  1. Add diced peaches, raspberries and water to a food processor or blender and process until pureed.

  2. Place a sieve over a large mixing bowl and pour peach raspberry puree into the sieve. Use the back of a large spoon to push the puree around so the liquid falls through the sieve and seeds/skin stay inside the sieve.

  3. Discard seeds/skin from the sieve and set mixing bowl with liquid in it aside.

  4. Add granulated sugar and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan and heat over MED heat until sugar dissolves into the water, stirring occasionally. Boil about 3 minutes until liquid has become syrupy. Set aside to cool slightly.

  5. Add 7 cups water, lemon juice and ice cubes to a large pitcher. Stir to combine. Pour in cooled simple syrup and peach raspberry liquid. Stir to combine again.

  6. Store covered in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Serve chilled with garnishes, if desired

  3. Oh my goodness, that lemonade sounds absolutely scrumptious and your photos are beautiful!

  4. Wow! This looks fantastic!! I need to try it asap!

  5. Heck yes! I’ll sit on the porch with my kids and sip on this all summer long! So refreshing!

  6. Love the flavors going on in this drink! Plus, that natural color is so pretty!

  7. Hi Amanda, this would be a great addition to the stone fruit theme over at Food on Friday (which is on right now). Each month there are 3 different themes plus a Potluck – so you should always be able to share something. If you would like to join in the fun on a regular basis please schedule a reminder for the second Friday of each month (NZ time). Cheers from Carole’s Chatter

  8. This would be incredible on its own, or with a little vodka 🙂

  9. How much does this recipe make?

  10. CAN you use honey instead?

  11. I made this today, and it is AMAZING! I actually used nectarines instead of peaches because they had nectarines at Costco that just smelled amazing. I saw this on Pinterest, and just had to make it! I got the rest of the ingredients at ALDI, and it came out awesome. Thank you so much for this recipe!!!

  12. Love this one too! Added this to the Foodie Friday Roundup if that’s ok. 🙂

  13. Raspberry peach lemonade will be the best thing to do right now in this heat especially where I’m from (Bulgaria). The weather here is about 40-45 degrees. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe with us.

  14. hello!
    I’m doing a low carb/low sugar thing(keto) could I substitute splenda for sugar?

  15. Looks so refreshing and beautiful! Can’t wait to whip some of this up! I just need to run out and grab some peaches.

  16. I’d like to make this for my wedding. If I use ready made lemonade do I need the simple syrup?

    • I’m so honored you want to make this for your wedding! Congratulations by the way 🙂 I would check the pre-made lemonade to make sure it has sugar (maybe even taste some to see how sweet it is), but in all likelihood you probably won’t need the simple syrup. But that all depends on how sweet you like your lemonade drinks to be.
