Peach Panna Drink

Peach Panna is a fusion take on Indian panna drink. Made using seasonal best juicy ripe peaches, this mocktail drink is refreshing, tangy, sweet and perfect thirst quencher with beautiful colors. No added sugar and only 5 ingredients are needed. You can make it in Instant Pot or on the stove top in under 30 minutes.

As summer heat rolls in we all get thirsty for refreshing beverages. Instant Pot Sweet Iced Tea, Mango Mocktail or Indian aam panna, and Saffron and Rose infused lemonade are perfect mocktails. We also love Red wine sangria and Paloma Fizz Cocktail to serve especially during outdoor gatherings.

Peach Panna

peach panna is a similar to classic Indian summer cooler drink Aam Panna. It is refreshing, tangy, sweet and perfect welcome drink. I love its refreshing summer taste which takes the drink to another level.

I often make a big batch by simply boiling / steaming the peaches however, you can also roaste peaches for extra smoky flavor. Adding roasted cumin powder makes it delightfully earthy. If you like Indian black salt, add a pinch for extra flavor boost.

Serving Suggestions

This drink is a perfect starter for birthdays and kitty parties. You could also add a dash of vodka (totally optional,) to make it a sensational alcoholic cocktail.

It is also an easy and quick recipe when you have unexpected guests at home . The fruit pulp can be stored in refrigerator or freezer for longer duration.

Recipe Inspiration

We have a peach tree in our backyard. Last year, my sisters were visiting me during the summer. Our entire family spent great amount of time nurturing and tending the garden together. It was so much fun to connect with nature, and try our green thumbs.

The peach tree must have felt the love !! It gave us over 200 pieces of peaches, a whopping record for this young tree! I was so amazed to see it.

My family, neighbors and friends got good portions of peach offerings towards end of the summer. Even after that, there were plenty of them left.

I wanted to preserve them for my sisters to taste it when they visit again. So this recipe came to my mind.

All the leftover harvest, I stored for making this beautiful peach drink. Since early this spring, we are enjoying the home grown, home made, refreshing drink. Truly ” Farm to table” style !

Storing

You can make the pulp and store the same to use when peaches are not in season. You can use several other fruits of your liking like mango or plum to make similar drink too.

If just the lemonade gets boring when the scorching heat hits the summer, try this delightful drink. Enjoy it as part of your daily fruit servings when you feel like reaching for glass of drink.

Serve this amazing drink along with starting appetizers like Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus , Quinoa Tabbouleh , Greek Tzatziki Sauce and Mezze Platter for a Meditararian feel for your summer party gatherings. It pairs well with meals  like Grilled Portobello Mushrooms , Whole Roasted Tandoori Cauliflower and Curried Quinoa Pilaf

Ingredients

  • Peaches or Nectarines – Get the summer’s best juicy ripe peaches. Removing the skin is optional. Also you can strain the drink to avoid the pulp or keep it based on how thick or thin you like your drink.
  • Roasted Cumin powder
  • Mint Leaves
  • Lemon or lime juice
  • Black Salt as required per taste
  • Water and ice cubes as required

How to make Peach Panna Drink

As mentioned earlier, you can make peach panna on the stove top as well in electric pressure cooker like Instant Pot. You steam the peaches, remove the pits, mash the pulp. Add rest of the ingredients. For serving, you mix the concentrate with ice cold water. Garnish with mint leaves and enjoy.

The peach panna concentrate can be stored in the freezer for extended period of time. Just defrost it and add water when ready to serve.

Detailed Instant Pot Directions

Clean and wash the peaches thoroughly.

In Instant Pot, in the main insert, put 1 cup of water. Using Pot in Pot method, put the peaches with 1/2 cup of water inside other container. Put the container in main pot, close the lid and put the valve in sealing position. Steam for 1 minute and let NPR ( natural presure release) after it’s done cooking.

Once the silver pin drops, open the lid. Let it cool down. Then squeeze out the seeds / pits. In a blender, add the pulp, salt and roasted cumin powder. Blend to a smooth paste.

You can strain the juice if you wish but it reduces the pulpiness which is delectable. (I skipped this step) When serving, mix the concentrate with chilled water at 1:1 ratio. Add fresh mulled mint leaves and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. Stir well.

Adjust salt and garnish with mint leaves and lemon wedges. Sip and enjoy this beautiful creation.

Stove top instructions

On Stove top, put the peaches in heavy bottom container, add 1 cup of water. Cover and let it simmer on low heat for about 20 mins. Turn the heat off. Once it cools, squeeze out the seeds. Follow rest of the instructions as above.

Pro Tips to Make Best Peach Panna

Choose the ripe unblemished peaches. Peeling the skin of the peaches is optional. You can also boil them with the skin on and then remove it after cooking. It slids off easily.

I did not add any additional sweetener in the concentrate. You can however add sugar , jaggery or stevia if needed. I do like the tangy sweet taste.
