Tips and Notes for Lemonade Peach Drink

  • Fresh peaches work best, but if you need to, you can use frozen peaches. Be sure to fully thaw them before using. You don’t want the ice to add extra water to the syrup mixture.
  • This makes a perfect base for cocktails or even popsicles!
  • Try to get as much juice as you can out of your peach mixture. It’s the concentrate that all of the flavor comes from!

Lemonade Peach Drink FAQ

How do you get the juice out of a peach?

The best way to get the juice out of a peach would be to use a juicer. Remove the pit and place it in a juicer. You could also place it without the pit into a blender. I’d recommend removing the skin before doing so.

How many lemons do you need to make a pitcher of lemonade?

To make a full pitcher (not picture!) of lemonade, I recommend using 6 whole lemons plus the zest of 1.

Can Peach Lemonade be made ahead of time?

Definitely! It lasts several days in the fridge.

How long does homemade peach lemonade last?

It’s best to consume homemade peach lemonade within 3 days.

How to Store Homemade Peach Lemonade

Homemade peach lemonade should be stored in a pitcher in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
