Peach Lemonade

Quenching your thirst basically takes water, of which I drink plenty, but when you want something  delicious and refreshing that will zing your taste buds, peach lemonade does seem to be rather divine.

Peach Lemonade
6 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 cup water
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
 Heat until sugar dissolves, steep for 10 minutes.

Add 2 cups of peach nectar or peach juice. I have used both, the nectar has a stronger peach taste, but the juice works just fine.
Stir in1 cup lemon juice. I personally use this brand of 100%  pure bottled lemon.


To this add 2 cups of water. I  enjoy the tartness, but you can add more sugar if preferred. Serve over a glass of ice and add a garnish of fresh rosemary. 

Then sit back and taste summer while it still can be found. Mine is packing and planning to leave very soon.

Interesting, I would have never thought of rosemary and peach together. I am curious about the taste? I think I might have to try that.

This sounds really tasty! I meant to bring some sprigs of rosemary with me when we moved to root but I forgot. The peaches have been so yummy lately. I am totally addicted. They are the main reason I keep going back to the store. =)
