Peach Quencher

Tis the season for Peaches..and here is a lovely drink to share :o)

Serves 4...69 calories...

1 cup pureed fresh peaches...(frozen or canned work too)

1 cup ice

1/3 cup canned pineapple juice

1/4 cup lemonade concentrate (undiluted)

1/1/2 cups club soda

fresh mint for garnish

In a blender, at high speed, whiz together the peaches, ice, pineapple juice, and lemonade concentrate until smooth, then stir in the club soda. Pour into glasses and garnish each with a mint sprig...

Enjoy while cold and icy ( even can add some liquor) :o) hugs G-Ma

I love peaches, pineapple and lemonade so this sounds and looks from the picture like my kind of sit by the pool quencher. Thank you G-MA.

This sounds oh, so yummy! G-Ma, is there any particular kind of liqour you'd suggest to go with this? My boyfriend makes a killer sangria and I'd like to "one-up" him as it were, or at least be on par! This is the first recipe I have seen that might be possible to do it with...

I have been told not to be wiseguy on the net.

Nicole, I would go with the vodka as G-Ma suggested or maybe peach schnapps.

G-Ma, You always have something to tempt our tastebuds! Another one to add to the list ;-)

They have the best fresh peaches a few towns over from me. I will definitely try this after I take the kids peach picking. I can't even eat the ones in the grocery store anymore. I look forward to August and September every year because of their amazing peaches. And the peach festival is this weekend.
