Our home economists perk up plain lemonade with peach nectar. Frozen peach slices serve as clever ice cubes that keep this beverage cool without diluting the flavor.
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
MakesAbout 2-1/2 quarts
- 8 cups lemonade
- 2 cans (5-1/2 ounces each) peach nectar or apricot nectar
- 1 cup frozen unsweetened sliced peaches
- Fresh mint sprigs, snapdragons and lemon balm
- In a 3-qt. glass pitcher, combine the lemonade and nectar; refrigerate until chilled. Just before serving, stir the lemonade mixture; add frozen peach slices. Place mint sprigs along the sides of the pitcher and float the flowers on top of the lemonade.
Editor's NoteVerify that flowers are edible and have not been treated with chemicals.
