Summer Peach and Raspberry Lemonade


Author Notes: I love summer! I love the abundance of sweet fruits that are available at the local farmers market, and all the different recipes that can be used with these fruits to whip up delicious desserts and drinks! Pure bliss!

It gets pretty hot up here in Northern California, in July especially in the East Bay, and after a long day's work, I wanted to make a refreshing drink to cool me off, and decided to make lemonade. I had these beautiful juicy white peaches and delicious looking raspberries, from the farmers market that I go to every Sunday, and hence decided to make my Peach and Raspberry Lemonade.

I put a lot of ice, cause it tastes excellent when its chilled. The kids devoured it, especially with the pretty pink hue of the lemonade, that attracted them! ;-)
