Peach Lemonade

Yes, it's Summer in the U.K!! and that means some super warm days & nights followed by some not so warm days& night!!
This spiked peach lemonade by Maureen Petrosky will be ideal for any lovely warm evening. Whether you've just arrived home in a stressed and hot sweat, due to your sauna impersonated tube/bus journey back from the office or for a lovely balmy early evening with friends on the patio, preferably with a barbeque!
Of course you can also drink this all day, any day, sans alcohol (or not! Whatever tickles your fancy).
I have basically followed Maureen Petrosky’s recipe to a Tee! Well, with the exception of adding some cognac as well as the vodka!
Hooray for Summer!
Here's what you need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 large peaches ( 1 for decoration; I preferred 3 peaches in my drink and 1 for decoration)
6 cups sparking water (For those who are not a big fan of fizzy drinks, like me, still water is just as effective!)
1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ½ cups of vodka
½ cup of cognac
What to do:
In a small pot, combine the cup of sugar & cup of water and let simmer on a low/medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and leave to cool.
You can now use this time to peel your peaches. Maureen explains how easily you an do this and you can see me getting very excited, following her instructions on my Vlogging Channel:
Basically, you put a cross on the bottom of the peach, place in boiling water for 30 seconds and then directly into an ice bath. Once cooled – you peel with your fingers. Easy peasy!!
Next, cut the peaches into cubes and place them in a blender and puree.

 Now grab a large pitcher, combine the pureed peaches, the cooled syrup, the sparkling water, lemon juice, vodka and cognac and stir.
Add loads of ice, stir again and voila! You are ready for some refreshing, delicious drinking!
