Every time I walk into the grocery store during the summer months I can’t get enough of that amazing aroma of fresh peaches! I can’t help but buy some EVERY time! I love those sweet juicy peaches in the summer! Such a treat! After one of my peach shopping sprees I got this idea that I should whip up some peach lemonade!
We Love Lemonade
The tart lemons and the sweet peaches are a perfect combination for a refreshing summer treat! And whipping this up is easier than you think! You’re going to want to make up a big pitcher of this and sit back in your lawn chair and enjoy the summer.
Here is what my helper was doing while I was giving the peach lemonade a photoshoot:
And of course he had to come and sneak a taste! (Still wet from splashing in the water table!)
Summer Drink Accessories
Mmmmm…perfection. AND! I nearly forgot! Have I introduced you to my Stainless Steel Straws? They are a true love around my house. The are cold as you sip through them and wash up in the dishwasher. Perfect for someone who drinks everything through a straw…like I do. I’ve already converted a few people to these little guys – so you should give them a try too!
In my opinion an ice cold drink like this one goes with almost anything – but I highly recommend serving it with our Rainbow Quinoa Salad or our summer asparagus salad. Summer food is my favorite – what are some of your favorite things to eat in the summer? Tell me in the comments below.
