Last summer I made some good old-fashioned lemonade…not really following any recipe, just instinct. It turned out awesome, so I decided to go for it again, but this time I added strawberries! I mean-what could go wrong? My family absolutely loved it and asked for it all summer long! It is the perfect combo of strawberry and lemon flavor. It is also very thirst quenching for a hot day. I made the first batch of the season Thursday and we already bought the ingredients to make it again. I tried to set a direct recipe in my head this time so I could share it with others. I hope your home enjoys this recipe as much as we do!
6 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
Squeeze the lemons and strawberries and pour juice into a pitcher. (To squeeze the strawberries, cut into smaller chunks and press them against your lemon squeezer.) Add the water and sugar; mix well. Allow the strawberries to sit in the lemonade before serving. This step is really important: the strawberry flavor comes out much stronger if they have a chance to set. Chill before serving.
