Summer Drink Recipes

When it’s BLAZING saddles hot outside you need a drink. An icy cold, thirst-quenching drink.

Lucky for you, and me, I have oodles of summer drinks that will hit the spot.

There’s Limeade Slush Punch, Virgin Mint Julep, Italian Cream Soda, and Strawberry Lemonade to name a few.

Ingredients

To make this peach punch recipe you’ll need 5 ingredients:

  • Granulated sugar
  • Water
  • Peaches – fresh ripe peaches are best!
  • Lemon juice – doesn’t have to be from fresh lemons. I used lemon concentrate.
  • Sprite or 7 UP – whichever suits your fancy.

How to make Peach Punch

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat bring the water and sugar to a boil. The sugar needs to be dissolved. Once the mixture boils remove from heat and let cool. Overhead photo of freshly sliced peaches in a blender.
  2. Peel and slice fresh peaches. Place the peaches in a blender and puree until smooth. You need 4 cups of peach puree. Pro tip: it took 7 cups of sliced peaches to get 4 cups of puree. A 4 cup glass measuring cup full of pureed peaches.
  3. Transfer the cooled sugar water to a very large pitcher or large bowl. Add the lemon juice and pureed peaches.
  4. Mix together then portion into quart or gallon sized freezer-safe bags or containers. Three freezer-safe quart sized bags full of peach punch juice.
  5. Freeze until firm.
  6. When ready to serve, remove one of the bags from the freezer and empty the frozen punch into a pitcher or punch bowl. Break the frozen juice into smaller pieces so that it will dissolve in the soda more readily. A glass pitcher with frozen peach punch chunks in it.
  7. Pour Sprite or 7 UP into the pitcher, stir and serve!

FAQ and Recipe Tips

Can I use canned peaches to make peach punch? Yes you can. Keep in mind the flavor will be a bit different because fresh and canned peaches don’t taste the same (in my opinion). Another thing to consider is that most canned peaches are sweeter so you may want to reduce the amount of sugar you add in the recipe.

It took about 7 cups of freshly sliced peaches to make 4 cups of peach puree.

Serving suggestion: Right before serving I like to add sliced peaches to the prepared punch. It fancies it up and also tastes really good if you happen to get one of the slices in your cup. 🍑

Can serve with Sprite/7 UP or without! It’s delicious with the fizz and without.

How much does it make? Makes about 3 quart sized bags of peach punch.

Freezing instructions: Store the juice in freezer-safe plastic bags or freezer-safe containers. Peach punch will last 6-9 months in the freezer.

I added 2 cans of Sprite to 1 – quart sized bag of frozen peach juice. The key is to taste as you go!
