Spiked Peach Lemonade
4 - 5
PersonalPoints™ per serving
Peak-season peaches are beautifully fragrant and sweet—and make for a gorgeous lower-sugar batch cocktail. We blend the fruit to form the flavour base of the drink, leaving the skins on for more colour and peachy flavour. The fruity base can be made ahead. Hold off on stirring in the seltzer until just before serving, so it doesn’t go flat.
3 medium, ripe, divided
¾ cup(s), (6 fl oz.)
Fresh lemon juice
12 fl oz, (1½ cups) lemon-flavored (or more to taste), chilled
- Chop 2½ peaches. Cut the remaining peach half into 6 slices.
- In a blender, purée the vodka, lemon juice, sugar, and chopped peaches until smooth. Pour the peach mixture into a pitcher. Stir in the seltzer. Fill 6 glasses with ice. Divide the cocktail among the glasses and top off with more seltzer (if desired). Garnish each glass with 1 peach slice.
- Serving size: about ⅔ cup (without ice)
