What Makes Peach Vodka Lemonade Special?

Lemonade has been a popular beverage for a long time. In fact, the origins of lemonade date back to the Egyptians!

In that amount of time, we’ve had a lot of time to tweak the recipe and come up with a lot of creative variations, including cocktails!

Of course, fruity variations are always popular, and peach is the perfect choice. Why? Well, that’s because peaches are inherently sweet, and readily available in the summer, which is the time you’re most likely to want a refreshing lemonade.

So, this peach vodka lemonade is special because it’s the perfect mashup of seasonal summer flavors in an easy to make cocktail!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

Vodka peach lemonade cocktails are incredibly easy to make. It’s just as simple to make a single serving or an entire pitcher, meaning that you can enjoy one solo or with a crowd.

These refreshing vodka lemonade drinks are perfect poolside, or served to a crowd at your next backyard barbecue!

Ingredients List

ingredients to make peach vodka lemonade

For a Single Serving

  • 2 Ounces peach vodka (such as Smirnoff, Deep Eddy, New Amsterdam, or Three Olives)
  • 3 Ounces prepared lemonade
  • ½ fresh peach, sliced
  • Ice cubes

For a Pitcher (Approximately 6 Servings)

  • 3 Cups prepared lemonade
  • 2 Cups peach vodka
  • 1 Cup peach juice (such as Simply Peach)
  • 3 fresh peaches, sliced
  • Ice cubes

Ingredient Tips and Substitutions

  • You can also use citrus vodka, Smirnoff peach lemonade flavored vodka, or you can use 1 ounce regular vodka and 1 ounce peach schnapps or peach simple syrup instead
  • To lower alcohol content, reduce the vodka to 1 ounce for a single serving or 1 cup for a pitcher, and offset with peach juice or additional lemonade instead
  • Any type of lemonade is fine. I use Simply Lemonade, but you can use any other brand, make homemade, prepare a powdered mix, or whatever you like
  • You can omit the fresh peaches if desired to reduce sweetness, but they add visual appeal and taste (and I don’t think it’s sickly sweet anyway)
  • Vodka lemonade cocktail proportions are normally 2:3. However, when you make it in a pitcher, I find you need extra juice to balance it. You can also use some peach simple syrup, nectar, or puree (store bought or homemade)
  • Garnish with a slice of lemon or a slice of fresh peach, if desired

Variations of Vodka Peach Lemonade

  • Warm. Add warmth to your cocktail with ¼ tsp (1 tsp for a pitcher) of cinnamon, ginger, or cloves
  • Spicy. Add a few slices of jalapeno (or a whole jalapeno for a pitcher) or candied ginger to add a spicy variation!
  • Herby. Mint or basil leaves can be added to your cocktail for an herb infusion, which also helps to reduce sweetness
  • Frozen. Add the cocktail (including ice) to a blender and pulse for a blended slushie cocktail variation!
  • Sparkling. Use the addition of prosecco (about 1 ounce for a glass, or 1 cup for a pitcher) or lemon-flavored sparkling water to make a sparkling peach vodka lemonade

Recipe FAQs

Can I Use Frozen Peaches for Peach Vodka Lemonade?

Yes, you can use frozen peaches for peach vodka lemonade. In fact, they will help to cool down the drink even faster, so they’re a great option.

The only downside to using frozen is that they’ll need to thaw a bit before you’re able to eat them, and you won’t be able to garnish with them easily.

How Do I Make a Non-Alcoholic Version of Peach Lemonade?

To make a non-alcoholic version of peach lemonade, the basic recipe is a 50-50 mixture of lemonade and peach juice. You may also use peach nectar, puree, or simple syrup if preferred. Add fresh peaches for additional flavor and brightness.

You can also make your own homemade lemonade with lemon juice and simple syrup, but it’s equally delicious with premade or a mix for a base.

Can I Use Other Flavored Vodkas For This Cocktail?

Yes, you can use other flavored vodkas aside from peach vodka for this cocktail. The next best choices are citrus vodka or peach lemonade flavored vodka.

You may also use plain vodka, and use peach schnapps or peach juice, nectar, puree, or simple syrup to add the peach flavoring in.

What Are Some Creative Garnishing Ideas?

Garnish your vodka peach lemonade with a slice of fresh lemon, or a slice of fresh peach. You could also add a sprig of mint for a nice twist.

Alternatively, rim your glass using lemon juice and a bit of sugar for added sweetness and appearance.

Can I Make a Large Batch of Peach Vodka Lemonade For a Party?

Yes, you can make a large batch of peach vodka lemonade for a party. You’ll just want to use a pitcher for storage and scale the recipe, making sure to add some extra juice to balance out the vodka.

You can even make it in advance and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, it’s also easy to throw together right before your party as well.

What Other Fruit Combinations Work Well with Vodka Lemonade?

Other fruit combinations that work well with vodka lemonade include blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, pineapple, mango, or grapefruit.

Of course, this list isn’t finite, as there are plenty of other combinations that would also be delicious.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • If you’re making a pitcher, I suggest making it in advance and letting it sit in the refrigerator. This gives the peaches time to infuse with the alcohol!

Storage Tips

  • Store peach vodka lemonade in an airtight pitcher or carafe in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Without the fresh fruit, you may store it there for up to one week and just add fruit before serving!
  • Make sure to serve in a highball glass or similar so you have plenty of room for ice, as this refreshing vodka lemonade is best served cold!
