Strawberry Lemonade

19 04 2011

When life give you lemons you make lemonade, but when Bountiful Baskets gives you lemons and strawberries you make Strawberry Lemonade. I simple and very refreshing drink. Makes me dream of warm summer afternoons sitting out and enjoying a the day.

Start off by juicing 6 lemons and add the juice to a 2 quart pitcher.

Next place strawberries and 2 cups of water in a blender. I cut off the tops but you can leave them on.

Blend until smooth and then add to the pitcher. Next add 1/2 cup sugar and 2 cups water to a small saucepan and heat until it dissolves. Let it cool and add it to the pitcher. Fill the rest of the 2 quart pitcher with water and stir well. You may need to adjust the sugar depending on how sweet your strawberries are and you liking.
