More About This Recipe
  • I was in Atlanta last month for a food conference and got so many awesome ideas! The goodies at the convention were great, but some of my most delish moments were out on the town seeing what was up with the local food vibe. I learned that every single street in Atlanta is named Peachtree. So, with all those peach trees begging to inspire, I had to find some peach treats. I grabbed my local pals and headed to an Atlanta eatery, where I had the most amazing Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade. By the time I was done with my glassful, I kinda started understanding about the Peachtree Street thing. I tried to recreate that Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade back here in Minnesota and wanted to share my version with you. Serve in tall glasses punched up with a mint leaf, peach or lemon slice, raspberries or anything else you can think of. It's about the closest thing to Peachtree Street outside of Atlanta! More Fun with Peach Lemonade Make your summer lemonade drinks rock with Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade! Some ideas:
  • Arnie Palmer: Fill a Collins glass half with Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade and half with iced tea. (Add 2 oz. vodka if you want to shake it up a bit!) Lemon-Peach Punch: Add equal amounts of Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade and sparkling water (or Ginger Ale, Sprite or any clear bubbly) to a glass or punch bowl. Serve immediately so you don't lose the bubbles! Peachy Freezies: Freeze the Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade. Add frozen lemonade and ice cubes to a blender. Blend until slushy. Serve with peach slices on the rims of the glasses. Add vodka to taste, if desired. Raspberry Peach-Lemonade Shooter: Pour 1/2 oz. raspberry vodka and a splash of Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade into a shooter glass. Peachy Lemon Melon: Pour 1 oz. vodka, 1/2 oz. Midori, 1/2 oz. Triple Sec and 5 oz. Grilled Georgia Peach Lemonade over ice in a cocktail shaker and shake away. Strain into a cocktail glass and add a splash of grenadine.
