There's nothing more symbolic of warmer weather or more refreshing than lemonade. Scratch that- there's nothing more refreshing than peach lemonade. The tart of lemons combined with sweet Georgia peaches and spiked with a little infused vodka, well you now have the perfect warm weather libation. Cheers!
Boozy Peach Lemonade
|2 ounces peach flavored vodka such as Absolut APeach||1 1/2 cups sugar|
|1 cup hot water||2 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice|
|1 cup fresh peach juice or puree||3/4 gallon cold water|
|thyme to garnish|
In a 1 gallon+ container, place sugar and hot water, and stir until sugar dissolves.
Add lemon juice, peach juice, and cold water, stir. To get 1 cup of fresh peach juice peal 5-8 peaches (dependent on size) and juice in juicer or Vitamix. For a puree simply peal, slice, and muddle.
Add vodka, stir until well mixed.
Pour lemonade over glasses of ice, squeeze slice of lemon on top of each, and garnish with a sprig of thyme.
**If you are using a peach puree rather than peach juice don't add to entire mixture, just muddle and add to each glass before pouring.**
