Strawberry lemonade

Kelly Mike - Saturday, August 22, 2015

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lb strawberries, washed & cut in halves, about 4 cups
  • 2 lemons, washed and quartered
  • 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. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Strain the lemon mix into the pitcher, mix well and add the rest of the water. Taste and adjust sweetness level if needed.
