A lot of peach lemonade recipes require cooking down the peaches, pureeing them, straining them and then allowing them to cool before making your lemonade.  Whew, I’m worn out just thinking about it!  I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking summer is all about ease… and not standing over a hot stove.

This is where a few peach slices and some sugar comes in handy.  Simply macerating, or tossing your peaches in sugar and letting them sit for about 10 minutes, does the trick without all the fuss.  The peaches will begin to break down a little and create a delicious peachy syrup that works as a wonderful foundation for this summer sipper. 

And pureeing and straining?   No way.  Your lovely, syrupy peach slices are a stunning bonus floating in the pitcher.
