Every Wednesday night during the summer, my 4 year old and I do a cupcake and lemonade stand. We set up a stand in our front yard and sell fresh squeezed Simple Homemade Lemonade and a gourmet flavor of the week cupcake.
All money earned goes to her future college fund and so far she’s doing quite well for herself.
It’s because of our weekly lemonade stand, that we always have fresh lemons on hand.
However, after 5 weeks of delicious lemonade, I decided that I wanted to try a new recipe. I had peaches and raspberries on hand and decided to whip up a raspberry peach lemonade syrup.
Just like our Simple Homemade Lemonade, which makes a syrup that you add water to, this raspberry peach lemonade recipe also makes a syrup in which will keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days until you are ready to use it.
I tried a few versions of this, all of which were WAAAAAY too sweet. Once I realized that it needed very little sugar because the fruit added almost all the natural sugar it needed.
This raspberry peach lemonade was sweet with a hint of tang from the raspberries. And has quickly become a new favorite way to do lemonade. We liked it so much we took it to a friends house to share with them!
Sometimes it’s nice to be friends with a food blogger. There are usually food related perks every time you see them!
If you love lemonade, peaches and raspberries, then I recommend you give this raspberry peach lemonade recipe a try. It’s easy to whip together, sweet, hint of tang and goes down real smooth!
