Lemon Week Day 2: Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

7 Mar

It was SO beautiful outside yesterday! Almost 65 degrees! I am hoping it is just as warm today, if it is, this lemonade will hit the spot Makes me very excited for summer!

Lemons Used: 3
Lemons Remaining: 9

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

  • 1/2 carton of strawberries
  • 3 lemons
  • 1 cup of raw sugar [I used Sugar in the Raw]
  • 3 cups of water

Bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil. Meanwhile, squeeze the juice of the lemons and muddle the strawberries. Strain the juice of the lemons and blackberries to keep seeds out of the lemonade. Remove boiling sugar/water mixture from heat and let sit about 5 minutes, adding the mixture to the pitcher once it has cooled. Add the remaining 2 cups of water and some ice cubes. Serve with a wedge of lemon or small strawberry on the side of the glass and enjoy!

This is what happens when you squirt lemon in your eye too many times. Your husband takes pictures of you in lemon protective eye wear! 🙂
