I like the peachy variation. It's a good idea, although I used a small fresh peach per serving instead of canned. It made a nice foamy peach drink. However, the amount of sugar in their lemonade recipe is insane. I don't know if this is an error or what, but almost 1/4 cup of sugar in one serving of lemonade is crazy. You need 1 T of sugar per serving, at most.
