Strawberry Lemonade

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lb strawberries, washed & cut in halves, about 4 cups
  • 2 lemons, washed and quartered (use limes to make strawberry limeade)
  • ~ ½- ¾ cup honey or sugar to taste, adjust based on your preference and sweetness of strawberries
  • 6 cups of water
  • Ice
  • Garnishes:
  • Strawberry slices, lemon slices and/or fresh herbs (mint, lemon verbena, lemon balm, basil)

Instructions

  1. Blend the strawberries, lemons and honey with 2 cups of water
  2. Strain the strawberry lemon mix, add the additional 4 cups of water through the strainer
  3. Taste and add additional honey/sugar if needed
  4. Serve cold over ice and garnished with strawberry slices, lemon slices and herbs
  5. Method 2 (this one helps make the straining easier and keeps all strawberry goodness):
  6. First blend only the strawberries with the honey and 1 cup of water. You don’t need to strain this, it’s better to keep all the strawberries goodness. Then place the blended strawberries mix in a pitcher.
  7. Then in the same blender, you don’t need to wash or rinse it, blend the quartered lemons with the 1-2 cups of water.
  8. Strain the lemon mix into the pitcher, mix well and add the rest of the water. Taste and adjust sweetness level if needed.
  9. Serve as indicated above.
