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
- In a small sauce pan, bring sugar and water to boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
- Place strawberries into a food processor or blender and process/blend until smooth
- Pour blended strawberries into the sugar water. Add the lemon juice then stir well.
- 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.
