As long as there are peaches, you can be sure we have a maturing basket on the counter for salads, cobblers, and juicy snacks.
They are Noah's absolute fruit, so it made sense to present them in a honey-sweetened lemonade for her recent birthday party. We celebrated Noah's 9th birthday on Sunday, which is amazing because I just didn't make this robot cake for his seventh? And his third doesn't seem that long ago, now that I think about it.
Maybe I'll post a few more photos from the party later in the week, but this peach lemonade recipe had to be shared ASAP. Hopefully you haven't yet moved to apples and squash; there is plenty of time for that later in the fall.
He was channeling summer for Noah's birthday party, and luckily the weather kept going. I know I have already admitted that I crave food cravings, but I felt the need for one last sunny celebration, with grilled wings, homemade and traditional ice cream. , lots of corn with butter and salads, and of course, lemonade.
We had it all, but the peach-colored drink was the first to go, she sipped as we watched the children shake the apples and run to eat a donut from a rope. It's much more difficult than it sounds, especially since you can't use your hands and they tend to sway … and around.
Lemonade has always been my son's number 1 request for a sip on his birthday; It is always made from scratch and lemons are not exactly local, making it a special treat.

In this bright orange version, a simple honey syrup is infused with sweet Ontario peaches, and then married with lemon zest and juice. Fruity and light, quenching thirst and completely delicious, this vibrant drink is the perfect ending to summer.
Noah declared that it was the best thing he had tasted all day and admitted to having drunk four glasses during the afternoon. That left me feeling better about my decision to drop the usual white sugar and switch to honey.
My only regret? He doesn't earn double.
