How to Make Strawberry Lemonade
This is a my recipe for making a special type of lemonade.
2 cups of sugar divided
1 cup of water
11/2 cups of strawberries in halves
2 cups of fresh lemon juice (about 15 lemons) chilled
6 cups of sparkling, chilled
Step: 1 Combine 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Continue stirring then leave to cool.
Step: 2 Process the strawberries, remaining 1 cup of sugar and the sugar syrup in a blender or food processor until it is pureed. Then pour the mixture through a wire mesh strainer ten into a large pitcher.
Step: 3 Stir in the lemon juice and sparkling water just before serving. It is best to serve over ice. You can decorate with fresh mint leaves if you like. It all depends on you.
Tips & Warnings: You can either use frozen strawberries, or fresh strawberries if you like. Either way you can’t help but enjoy this refreshing drink.
