    Delicious! I love the natural pink color of this refreshing drink! I leave some lemon pulp and all of the peaches in the lemonade, giving it more texture, color, and more peach flavor. I will defiantly make this again!

    Very good, easy & refreshing! The only thing is I might cut back on the amount of lemon juice, so that it has more peach flavor, but I would for sure fix this again! Also an idea...I think it would be good with sparkling water added instead of regular water!! :)

    This sounds really good! I am going to try this during peach season. I usually make my own lemonade syrup, my mother-in-law's recipe, and am always looking for ways to alter it in some way.

    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.
