Strawberry Lemonade

Although we are not even close to summer, for me lemonade is a year-round drink. I kind of like acidic-tasting drinks like grapefruit juice, and lemonade fits right into that category. When I get bored with traditional yellow lemonade, strawberry lemonade is a convenient switch-up. I adore strawberries on their own, but they add a fruity and healthy taste to this sugary and refreshing drink.

You’ll need:

1.5 cups of fresh lemon juice (from about 12 lemons)
1.5 cups sugar
2 cups of strawberries (cut)
8 cups of water

What to Do:

1. In a large, deep saucepan, boil the 8 cups of water and the 1.5 cups of sugar
2. Remove sugar and water from heat once boiled, and add 2 cups of cut strawberries
3. Add the fresh squeezed lemon juice to saucepan, and cool to room temperature
4. Add ice to mixture and serve with fresh strawberries and lemon slices
