Spiked peach lemonade
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.
3 medium, ripe
Lemon Juice, Fresh
330 ml, sparkling
- 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 sparkling water.
- Fill 6 glasses with ice. Divide the cocktail among the glasses and top off with more sparkling water (if desired). Garnish each glass with 1 peach slice.
Hold off on stirring in the sparkling water until just before serving, so it doesn’t go flat.
