Who doesn’t love a good cold drink on a hot summer day? Some of my favorite summer drinks are sweet tea and lemonade. Here’s a recipe you can use to make these traditional drinks a little fancier!
6 fresh, ripe peaches
3 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of sugar
Stevia to equal 1/2 cup of sugar. (I use liquid stevia, so it’s one dropper, you can also just do another 1/2 cup of sugar.)
Peel and slice the peaches and put them in a kettle. Add the water and sugar and bring to a boil. Mash up the peaches some with a spoon or whisk. Let the mixture at a low boil for 10 minutes. Then remove from the heat, and let it cool. Strain the juice off into a quart jar. Now you have peach syrup! Store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
Use 3 T. of syrup for a 16 oz. serving of tea or lemonade.
Use 1 cup of syrup for 1/2 gallon of tea or lemonade.
When you are making your drink, you can halve the sugar because the syrup is sweet!

Yummy!! Great idea!
Hello, Pursuing Our Purpose! Are you aware that the last link you sent out (Tips and Tricks in the Flower World) does not work? Or at least, the one in my email didn’t. 😉 Also, when I went straight to your blog, Rubies 2021 was the most recent post shown. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tech news.
Thanks for an edifying and fun blog!
Thank you for letting us know! I am not sure what went wrong with that post, but we are working on getting it rewritten and posted for you all!
