Notes

Fresh Peach Lemonade Q&A
How long does peach lemonade last?
This will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days.  Stir before serving.
What is it called lemonade and not lemon juice?
Lemonade originated in 1630 in Paris.  Lemonade is called “lemonade” and not “lemon juice” like “orange juice”; because it is a mixture of lemon juice, sugar and water, while orange juice is generally just the juice from an orange.
Is lemonade hydrating?
Sour drinks are linked to salivation which helps hydration. So yes, lemonade does help hydration.
