Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 10 cups
- 1 1/2 cups liquid honey
- 4 cups water
- 6 cups chopped peaches about 8 medium
- 4 zest of 1 lemon
- 1 cup lemon juice about 4 large
- 4 cups ice
thinly sliced lemons and peaches for garnish
Combine honey and water together in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Stir until honey is dissolved.
Add chopped peaches and lemon zest. Simmer on med-low for five minutes, then turn off heat.
Allow infusion to cool completely, then strain through a fine mesh sieve into a large pitcher or jar.
Stir lemon juice into the peach simple syrup; this is your lemonade concentrate. Chill until ready to serve.
To serve: mix peach lemonade concentrate with water to taste (I prefer mine on the lighter side). Pour into a serving pitcher or jar and top up with ice. Add a garnish of thinly sliced lemons and peaches. Serve at once.
