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.
1 1/2 cups of strawberries, trimmed and halved
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 5 lemons)
3 cups cold water
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!
