summery peach coolerSummer is NOT over! So what if the kids are back in school? It's still sunny and warm and the produce aisle at the grocery store is still stocked with summertime fruit. Of course -- it's true that before long we'll be forced to make due for months with nothing but apples and pears, so we might as well use the last peaches of the season (my personal favorite) in as many recipes as possible.

Like this Summery Peach Cooler from! It's sweet and amazing, like a fizzy fuzzy navel (sans alcohol). Although I suppose a dash of peach schnapps couldn't hurt. Either way, yum. Peaches.

Summery Peach Cooler
