Welcome Luvinthemommyhood readers!
And welcome as always to my no big dill readers ;)
Do you ever get tired of trying to get hydrated enough on just water, especially during the warmer months? As much as I love the straight-up-H2O, sometimes I just need something to sweeten the deal. This definitely fits the prerequisites. It is one of the most refreshing drinks.
- 5-7 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups peach nectar
- 1 cup lemon juice
- dilute with about 1 cup of water, or to taste
Bring sugar and 1 cup water with rosemary to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, tasting as you go, to get it just right. You know, not too sweet, just enough lemon juice.
Make sure you use peach nectar. Peach juice won't give it enough peachy-ness. Ryan and l like to joke about this particular brand. If you happen to get your hands on some luscious peaches, please feel free to add them for the most authentic peach flavor. And freshly squeezed lemon juice is the best, but it's still awfully good with bottled.
