Wonderful recipe. I've made this twice this summer. The first time I felt it was a little too sweet, so I cut back on the sugar the second time, but then I had to add a little more sugar. It might just depend on how sweet your peaches are.
The peach flavor really comes through in this delicious lemonade! I added some lemon zest to the peaches as they were simmering, which really brought out the tangy lemon flavor as well. I will definitely make this recipe again, maybe mixing it with iced tea for a peach tea lemonade!
It is the best thirst quencher. Well worth the time to make.
