Strawberry Lemonade

What's more refreshing than a glass of cold lemonade on a hot day?? Well maybe a glass of cold strawberry lemonade! I love strawberries! I love lemon anything! Got some girl scout cookies this past weekend, the lemon smiles...the box is just about gone. Too addicting! I found this recipe off the food network and it is quite delicious. Kind of the perfect mix of lemon and strawberry. There isn't an overwhelming taste of tart.

Ingredients
-2 cups water
-1 cup sugar
-1 cup fresh lemon juice
-1 pint strawberries
-2 cups club soda

In a medium saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon juice, stir, and remove from the heat. 

Let it cool and strain into a pitcher.

In a blender, puree the pint of strawberries and add to the pitcher with the lemon juice. Stir well to combine and refrigerate until well chilled.

Add the club soda, stir, and pour into your glass with ice.







9 days until Spring!

  2. Yummy! A few weeks ago, I made some raspberry lemonade just like this! Except I ended up pureeing the raspberries, adding sugar, lemon juice, and the club soda. Strawberry lemonade just tastes like summer to me!
