Pineapple Lemonade

I just found this recipe... Next week I will be getting fresh peaches from the boot heel of Missouri. I can't wait to try this with peaches!

Pineapple Lemonade from HyVee

All you need:
1/3 c. Hy-Vee sugar
1/3 c. water
1 1/2 c. cold water
2 large lemons, juiced
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 c. fresh pineapple chunks
Crushed ice
12 fresh mint leaves
All you do:
For lemonade simple syrup, in a small saucepan combine sugar and 1/3 cup water. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until sugar is just dissolved. Remove from heat. Cool slightly.
Stir in 1-1/2 cups cold water, lemon juice and ginger. Add pineapple chunks. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
Just before serving, fill glasses half-full with crushed ice and mint leaves. Using a wooden spoon, gently bruise mint to release flavor.
Add pineapple mixture to a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into ice-filled glasses; stir to combine.
For an adults-only version: Add 1 ounce of rum to each drink.
