  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches (about 3 medium) or 1 pound frozen unsweetened sliced peaches
  • 1 package (3/4 ounce) fresh basil leaves or 20 large leaves
  • 4 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 5 to 8 cups ice cubes
  • Peach slices and additional fresh basil leaves


  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, peaches, basil and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 30 minutes. Discard basil; stir in lemon juice. Refrigerate until cooled completely.
  2. Process half the peach mixture and 2-1/2 cups ice in a blender until blended, adding more ice if desired. Repeat with remaining peach mixture and ice. Pour into chilled glasses; serve with peach slices and additional basil.
