Marcy’s Recipes: Peach Quencher
(Recipes and Reflections from California’s Heartland, 2000)
2 cups pureed peaches (Sun Crest variety, if you can find them — they must be ripe and juicy!)
6 ounces pineapple juice
½ cup frozen lemonade concentrate
3 cups club soda
Thoroughly wash, slice and remove the pits of very ripe fresh peaches. Puree peaches in blender or food processor to make 2 cups. Add pineapple juice, lemonade concentrate and club soda. Continue to blend as you add six ice cubes. Blend only until ice becomes slushy. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint leaves and a Sun Crest peach slice. In the off season, you may use a package of frozen peaches.
