Homemade Strawberry Lemonade
of freshly squeezed lemon juice
approximately 15 lemons
sliced or diced + a few extra for garnish
Squeeze your lemons and set aside the lemon juice in a large pitcher.
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.
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.
Once the sugar mixture is completely cooled add it to the lemonade and mix well.
Makes approximately 8 servings.
**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. ;)
***Although this is a non-alcoholic beverage and kid-friendly you could also easily add vodka for an adult twist.
