Cook Time 7 hours 26 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 C. of freshly squeezed lemon juice approximately 15 lemons
  • 1 C. of strawberries sliced or diced + a few extra for garnish
  • 1 ½ C. sugar
  • 5 C. cold water

Instructions

  1. Squeeze your lemons and set aside the lemon juice in a large pitcher.
  2. Puree the 1 cup of fresh strawberries with 1 cup of cold water in a food processor or blender and stir into the fresh lemon juice you have set aside.
  3. Next, combine ½ cup of water and the sugar to a small saucepan. Heat and let simmer for 5 minutes making a simple syrup for your lemonade.
  4. Once the sugar mixture is completely cooled add it to the lemonade and mix well.
  5. Makes approximately 8 servings.
  6. **If you would prefer to bypass making your own fresh lemonade you could also substitute with a store bought brand such a Simply Lemonade and still add the fresh strawberries. ;)
  7. ***Although this is a non-alcoholic beverage and kid-friendly you could also easily add vodka for an adult twist.
