There’s a reason why we’re calling this the best peach lemonade recipe. It really is! A few weeks ago, I had the urge to make homemade lemonade. So with the abundance of juicy, plump peaches at the farmers’ market and in stores, I figured a peach lemonade would be the perfect recipe this time of year! Personally, I like lemonade that’s light, refreshing and not very sweet. The recipe is my go-to lemonade recipe and for this one, I added peach puree and peach extract to it. The peach extract gives it just a little more intense peach flavor, so you can really taste and smell the peaches! It’s so good! And if you want to make a cocktail version, just add in a shot of vodka! Enjoy and stay charming!
