Sour with a touch of sweet, this nectarine lemonade is sweetened with a touch of maple syrup to create a cool glass perfect for a summer afternoon.
You know what summer lends itself to? Fun, refreshing drinks. We all love them, and we all definitely crave them.
We’ve created quite a few delicious ones over the years, like our Summery Passion Fruit Sangria, Blueberry Lime Frozen Margaritas, our Watermelon Limeade and my personal favorite, Blueberry Frozen Lemonade. And here’s another one to add to the list: a nectarine lemonade. Sweet, tangy and the perfect summer thirst quencher. Now, we like ours on the sour side, so if you have more of a sweet tooth, fell free adjust the amount of lemon juice and add more maple syrup. Like we said, to each his own
- 3 nectarines, skin and pit removed
- 2 cups cold water
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- Juice of 4 small lemons (you can use more or less, to taste)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour through a small mesh strainer to remove any pulp left
- Refrigerate until ready to drink
