Rhubarb and Peach Lemonade Recipe




Here's another recipe for all you rhubarb lovers! Rhubarb and Peach Lemonade. Doesn't that sound amazing?? It is so delicious and refreshing! I've been making tons of rhubarb desserts lately, so I wanted to try out something different. This lemonade sure hits the spot! I love my lemonade tart, so the tart rhubarb is a perfect pair with the lemons. The peaches add a touch of flavor to balance everything out! Enjoy!!

Rhubarb and Peach Lemonade (print recipe)

What you need:
1/2 pound frozen peaches, thawed
2 cups rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 cup lemon juice
3 cups water
1/2 cup- 1 cup sugar

Directions:
In a small saucepan, bring the peaches, rhubarb, sugar and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, breaking up peaches and rhubarb while stirring. Remove from heat when the mixture breaks down and becomes saucy. Set aside to cool.

When the mixture is cooled, strain and pour juice into a pitcher. I also added some of the peach and rhubarb pulp to my juice since I love pulp! Dispose of the pulp if you prefer not to add it.

Add the lemon juice, water and sugar to the pitcher, with the peach and rhubarb juice. Add sugar 1/4 cup at a time until you reach your desired sweetness. Stir until sugar is dissolved and refrigerate before serving.
