Summer Strawberry Lemonade

Summer Strawberry Lemonade

Tangy-sweet lemonade with bits of juicy strawberries

Yield: 

48-56 oz

Ingredients: 

2 large lemons, washed
3/4-1 c sugar*
6-7 c water*
2 c strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced
1/8-1/4 c sugar

Instructions: 

1. Slice lemons as thinly as possible. Put lemon slices and 3/4-1 c sugar into a large bowl or pan.

2. Using a potato masher, mash lemon slices with sugar, squeezing out juice.

3. Add water (to taste) and additional sugar if needed. Strain out seeds and rinds.**

4. Combine strawberries with 1/8 c sugar and mash. Add more sugar if needed.

5. To serve, pour lemonade into a glass and add several tablespoons of the strawberry mixture.

Additional Notes: 

*Taste your lemonade as you make it, to get the right amount of sugar and water, since lemon size and taste buds vary :D

**Lemon rinds may be eaten, and are actually quite tasty when sliced very thinly and eaten fresh. Don't leave the rinds in your lemonade for longer than 30 minutes or so, because they will make it bitter.

Preparation Time: 

15 minutes

Tammy's Review: 

This is a great summer drink recipe. I love the tangy lemon and strawberry taste! I usually prefer plain water, but if I am going to have a sweet drink with a meal, this is a good choice! Easy to make, and beautiful besides! My rating: 9/10.

We made this today and took it to Sunday supper. Everybody loved it! (We were even asked for the recipe) At first, it seemed like there was not enough of something, but I decided we'd stick it in the 'fridge and taste it again after it was cold. That seemed to make the difference. I can't believe how easy it was to make! I was sure we'd mess it up and have horrible tasting lemonade, lol. Very tasty though! (We doubled the recipe, ended up using 5-6 lemons because they were kinda small, and just put all the strawberry mixture into the pitcher.)
