It seems like the long summer days are already starting to wind down, which is hard to believe considering it’s only the first week of August. So in order to preserve the rest of the season as best we can, I tracked down an exciting new cocktail recipe for you guys to try out! Joy The Baker is always a go to for me when it comes to fun recipes. She has such a great way of presenting a dish (or drink) and makes everything really easy to follow. Keep reading for all the details on how to create this Peach & Cardamom Lemonade at home!
3 ripe peaches, pitted and coarsely chopped
1 scant cup brown sugar (not packed into the measuring cup)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
4 cups water
crushed ice for serving
In a blender combine chopped peaches (skin and all), brown sugar, cardamom, and lemon juice. Blend to a smoothie-like consistency. Pour into a fine mesh strainer placed over a medium bowl and press the mixture through the fine mesh strainer leaving some of the peach skin and pulp behind. Discard what is left in the strainer.
Pour the strained peach and lemon mixture into a pitcher. Add 4 cups of water and stir. Taste and adjust accordingly.
Pour over crushed or cubed ice and enjoy!
