Looking for another summery beverage to add to your repertoire? Highlight some delicious local produce by learning how to make a refreshing peach punch.

Warmer weather brings an abundance of local produce just waiting to be eaten. Impress your friends and family this summer with a flavorful peach punch. This recipe works well for backyard barbecues, bridal or baby showers, or even for a romantic picnic date.

Remember to head to your nearest farmers’ market or organic shop to purchase the ingredients for your peach punch. Supporting local agriculture is incredibly important, and the food produced in your area will have better flavor than produce that has been imported, or driven or flown across the country. If you have the space in your backyard, you could even consider growing your own peach tree – that way you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor, literally.
