The Perfect Summer Drink!

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in DIY, Food, How To, Life, Uncategorized

When I think of summer, I think of an ice cold beverage in my hands while I sit outside enjoying the sunshine. I love drinking beverages with cut up fresh fruit to add a little extra flavor. From basic water with lemon, to my personal favorite which is fresh strawberry lemonade. I’m going to share with you the quick and easy way to make the best homemade strawberry lemonade. Put it in a mason jar with a jumbo straw and sit by the pool and enjoy your summer time! Xoxo

What you’re going to need:

> 1 cup granulated sugar                                                          > 1.5 cups of fresh lemon juice (about 6 medium lemons)

> 1 cup water                                                                            > 6 cups of cold water

> 2 cups of fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced                     > 1 cup of chopped strawberries, chopped for toppings

> 1 lemon slice for garnish                                                       > Ice 

 

Steps: 

  1. In a small sauce pan, bring sugar and water to boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Place strawberries into a food processor or blender and process/blend until smooth
  3. Pour blended strawberries into the sugar water. Add the lemon juice then stir well.
  4. Pour strawberry lemon mixture and cold water into a large pitcher. Stir well and add ice to keep it cool. Pour into glasses and top with chopped strawberries and a lemon slice. 

 

 

  • PROM IS NOT CANCELLED! In fact as we're speaking right now, there are already a number of parents in the community setting up private proms for a later date. We could really use your help as well in coordinating this private event for your children and their class.

    If each school can get 10 parents to start on their side I believe we can accomplish our goal of making sure everyone still has a prom this year. In order to keep costs low, it's time to try and bring the proms back to the school gyms as hosts. It may be difficult to convince the schools right now, but as this movement I'm going to call #PROMFOREVER gains traction, In the end it may break down into a few mini proms for a school instead of 1 big one as parents decide to host in their homes if they can't get the schools on board.

    This is going to take some work but we have the time to do it now. #PROMFOREVER. We need to get involved in the community! the limo companies, floral companies, live entertainment companies etc... Anyone who is normally involved in prom and would be affected if there was no prom.

    Many of you are thinking to yourself while reading this, yeah fat chance, you're a dreamer! But seriously THIS CAN HAPPEN. the question is are you going to be a part of it, or are you going to remain complacent and watch and see what others can do for you.

    One of the greatest joys I have in life and why I love this business so much is because I can have a thought transition into reality. I want you to enjoy this same feeling when this nonsense is all over. Not only are you going to save PROM but you are going to give so many young Americans the RIGHT THEY HAVE EARNED to experience this right of passage. This is an important step these young men and women need to take into the next stage of their lives.

    This is not a special time in human history. We have fought disease before and we will fight it again. It is through the resilience of our species that we overcome what is thought to be impossible.

    We are the Impossible
    We are Fighters
    We are Winners
