The weather lately is absolutely gorgeous…even today started out drizzly and is now starting to turn out amazing!!!  So that got me thinking about spring things…..and Lemonade is at the top of that list!!!!   So today is a yummy Strawberry Lemonade….not the instant packet…not the powder that is horrible when you inhale it – but a true lemonade….

 

Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 5 to 6 lemons)
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar (if you like it very sweet, add another 1/4 cup)
1 pint fresh strawberries (hulled then puréed)
1 cup sparkling water
Makes 3 to 4 servings
Directions:
Step 1: Bring water and sugar to a boil in a pot. When the sugar dissolves, add lemon juice and grated lemon
peel and let it simmer for a minute. Turn off heat and let it cool down completely. When cool, strain into a clean
pitcher.
Step 2: Purée the strawberries in a blender. Add the puréed strawberries to the lemon juice and stir well. Now
add 1 cup of sparkling water and stir well again. Refrigerate until cold. Serve in glasses filled with ice and garnish
with fresh strawberries if desired.

I have to apologize for the lack of posts lately – its been crazy with everything around here …..
