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.
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 ! Farm to table literally!!
Serve this drink as a starting appetizer for your party and have accompaniments like Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Recipe or Curried Quinoa Recipe. It makes simple meals unforgettable ! Drink it up to happy times !!

How to make Sunrise Peach Drink
To prepare Sunrise Peach Drink, clean and wash the peaches thoroughly.
In InstantPot, in the main insert, put 1 cup of water. Using Pot in Pot method, put the peaches, 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)
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 and keep pulp aside.
BLEND THE PULP WITH SPICES:
In a blender, add the pulp, salt, cumin powder, and mint leaves. 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)
TO SERVE THE MIXTURE AS A DRINK :
When serving, mix pulp with chilled water at 1:1 ratio. Add ice cubes and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Stir well.
Adjust salt and garnish with mint leaves and lemon wedges! Sip and enjoy this beautiful creation!!
