Peach Lemonade ice tea

peach iced tea

 

Summer in Las Vegas is very hot and some times unbearable! After 4 years, living in Las Vegas,I still can’t tolerate the summer heat,neither can my daughter. We both love cold and rain,stepping in the paddles of water and playing on the rain.

One thing I love about summer in Las Vegas,though,is the abundance of fruits of any kind! But I always choose those I am familiar with and take me straight back to my childhood! Juicy,fragrant peaches and cold lemonade! I recently found an easy recipe for peach lemonade from Passion for savings and I said that I had to try it! I add lemon and garnish it with mint leaves and  I created a Peach lemonade ice tea. So refreshing and herbaceous!

    This looks so delicious—I love this idea! Rita, What kind of sugar did you use for this recipe? And did you add those sprigs of mint at any point in the recipe? I can’t wait to serve this over the weekend!

    • Hi Seema! Thank you so much!
      I used granulated sugar,the sprigs of mint was more like an afterthought but it worked perfectly! I added the mint after it was cooled down,as a garnish. I hope you’ll enjoy it! Please let me know about your results 🙂

      • Seema,I am so glad you loved it! To make it a little bit for grown ups,I filled up a wine glass with 1/2 white wine and 1/2 with the peach lemonade.
        It was such a refreshing cocktail!
