Summer Staples | Strawberry Lemonade

Nothing helps to beat summer heat like a refreshing, cold drink. This recipe is not only easy to put together, but can be transformed into a delicious cocktail in no time.

imageIngredients

1 1/2 cups of strawberries, trimmed and halved

1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 5 lemons)

3 cups cold water

Directions

1. Purée strawberries with 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a blender until smooth, then force through a fine sieve into a bowl to remove seeds.

2. Stir together strawberry purée, remaining lemon juice and water in a large pitcher. Taste, then add sugar if you like your lemonade more sweet than tart.

Chill for a day or two and serve over ice. Should you feel the need to take your lemonade up a notch, simply add vodka or rum for a delicious summer cooler. Just make sure you don’t mix up your lemonade with the kiddies 😉

Cheers to the weekend!
