And now that the last of my groceries are here, I can finish off with strawberry lemonade! Strawberries were super cheap (and not quite in season at the farmer’s market, sadly), and lemons are pretty cheap as well, so boom, strawberry lemonade, because it’s starting to get into pretty consistently summer temps out here, and I need a cool drink, lacking AC and all.
Makes at least 6 cups
- 1 qt strawberries (appx 4 cups, 1.5 pounds), halved
- 2 lemons, peeled and quartered
- appx ¾ c sugar (more or less to taste)
- 6 c water
Puree the lemons, strawberries, and 2 c water in a blender. Strain the mixture into 4 c water in your pitcher/container. Add your sugar, and taste. And then try not to drink it all right away.
