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!
