Strawberry Lemonade


Does anything say summer better than lemonade and even better strawberry lemonade?  Over the years I have been working on the perfecting of this recipe.  It is so simple!  2 cups of fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 2 cups of frozen strawberries pureed  and cold water.  While it would be easier to use unfrozen strawberries, I like to use frozen because you won't have to add ice cubes to the mixture and therefore you won't dilute your lemonade.  When you puree your strawberries just use water that you would otherwise add to your pitcher.  Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy!  So perfect for a hot summer day.  Perfect when you want to serve something a little fancy without alcohol.  You could also use sparkling water instead of tap water.  So refreshing!  Happy Summer!
