Peach Limeade

Yields 6 servings

5 peaches
1/4 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
1 cup lime juice (from approx 6-7 limes)
3 cups of water
Mint for garnish (optional)
Lime slices for garnish (optional)

Peel and slice the peaches and transfer to a blender. Add the sugar and blend until completely smooth.

Grab a colander or sieve and line it with a one layer of cheesecloth.  Then place it over a medium or large bowl and run the peach puree through the cheese cloth to expel the pulp. You'll definitely need the assistance of a spatula or wooden spoon to work it through--it'll be thick! 

In a small bowl (or measuring cup) juice the limes. Add the lime juice and water to the peach mixture. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve with a few ice cubes, mint and a lime. Pretty!
