Strawberry Lemonade

Also great if you add a little bit of vodka to make an "adult" version.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, (to slice as garnish)
  • 5 cups cold water
  • 1 cup sugar, (for simple syrup)
  • 1 cup water, (for simple syrup)
  • 1/2 quart strawberries, (for pureeing)
  • 4 strawberries, (to slice as garnish)

Preparation

  • Make a simple syrup by heating 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar until the sugar dissolves.

  • Once sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and let cool.

  • Squeeze the lemons. I got about 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice from 2 lbs of lemons

  • Pursee and strain half the strawberries to get the seeds out

  • Mix lemon juice, strawberry puree, simple syrup, and cold water.

  • Slice the extra lemon into thin rings, and slice the 4 strawberries. Put into container with lemonade as a garnish.

  • Enjoy!
