You’ll need the following for this yummy drink.
- Peaches: Sliced peaches work best for this recipe
- Raspberries: You can use fresh or frozen, they both work great!
- Sugar: Combined with the raspberries and peaches you will get the perfect sweetness!
- Lemon Juice: You can use fresh lemon juice, bottled or both.
- Water: You will need clean filtered water for both the syrup and lemonade itself.
- Small saucepan
- Wooden spoon
Step One: Make the fruit syrup
Add the peaches, raspberries, sugar, and water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 7-10 minutes, until the raspberries break down and the peaches are very soft.
Step Two: Strain and mix
Using a mesh strainer, strain out the solid fruit bits. Press with a wooden spoon to get all the syrup out. Don’t pres too hard or you’ll have fruit bits in your tea.
Pour the syrup into a pitcher and add the lemon and water. Stir well and serve over ice with additional fruit for garnish.
🥫 Storage instructions
Keep the lemonade in a pitcher, covered with plastic wrap.
If you’d like to make the syrup beforehand and freeze it, you can mix it with the lemon juice and water the morning you want to serve it.
Sure! If you’re using something less sweet, increase the sugar a bit.
Fresh has a much brighter flavor, but it’s expensive and a hassle. Bottled is fine!
👩🏻🍳 Expert tips
- Adjust your tartness/sweetness by adjusting the amount of sugar you put into it. Taste as you go to get to your perfect preference.
- Switch it up with some blackberries instead of raspberries. Just increase the sugar to 1 1/4 cups.
- Use frozen raspberries. Sometimes frozen is much cheaper than fresh raspberries in the store, and they work just as great!
- Avoid the seeds! Raspberries do have small seeds, and if that is something you don’t prefer, you can easily press the raspberries through a fine-mesh strainer.
- Use a citrus juicer to juice your lemon. This will save your fingers!
