Here is Tara's signature Lowcountry Lemonade recipe which can also be found in her beautiful book:

Fill a Zombie glass with plenty of crushed ice
Add 1 ounce Peach Schnapps
Fill remainder glass with lemonade (pink or regular depending on the color you want)
You can change the color to blue by using a small amount of Blue Curacao or to red by using Grenadine.
Use fresh mint to garnish or add a flower (not a poisonous one!)
