Summer time fun time and having an adult drink to beat the heat is not a bad idea! What better refreshing drink lemonade we some kick, for adults only of course. Try out this recipe from Tiffani Thiessen oldie but goodie and maybe switch up some ingredients to try a different mix:
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
12 ounces peach brandy
6 lemon slices, for garnish
6 mint sprigs, for garnish
- Combine the sugar and 1 cup water in a heavy-bottomed pot. Heat over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.
- Pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the cooled simple syrup into a 2-quart pitcher. (Reserve the remaining syrup for another use.) Add the lemon juice and 4 cups water and stir to combine.
- To serve, fill an 8-ounce glass with ice. Add 2 ounces of the peach brandy, then fill with the peach lemonade to just short of an inch below the rim.
- Garnish with a lemon slice and a mint sprig.
