oooh, niiice! I also found it very consentrated and added little more water.
Tis was oh so good. I did make a few changes though. I didn't have fresh mint so I put 1/4 cup of dried mint in with the water and heated it to extract the flavor.I added the sugar while warm to melt it. After it cooled, I added the peach nectar. I did add just a lttle more water. Lovely summer drink!
Yes this is yummy! I did cheat! I didn`t have nectar so I blended can peaches adding frozen concentrate lemonade. Leading me to skip the sugar. I gave one drink a kick with some coconut rum. Oh so yummy!
