Real Strawberry Lemonade
1 C Sugar
1 C Water
2 cartons of Strawberries
6 C Water
Juice all of your lemons - you'll end up with about a cup.
Make a simple syrup with the sugar and water. Dissolve the sugar completely and take off the heat.
Puree all of your strawberries and add a tablespoon of sugar. Half way through, add 1/3 C of water. Continue pureeing.
When pureed, pour into ice cube trays and freeze.
Mix your lemon juice and simple syrup in a 2 quart pitcher and mix.
Add 6 cups of water and put in the refrigerator to get cold.
When the ice cubes are frozen, place 2-3 in a glass and fill with lemonade.
Let the strawberry ice sit in the glass for a few minutes so dissolve a little.
Garnish with a strawberry.
Keep the the pitcher close because you'll want to keep re-filling your glass. Enjoy!
Pureed strawberries frozen into ice cubes and served with an easy homemade lemonade is the perfect way to ensure you get the right mix of strawberry and lemonade flavor. Beware it's very addicting!
