Strawberry Lemonade

If my husband could choose one drink to have for an entire month, it would be lemonade.  If he could choose one drink for the rest of his life, it would be strawberry lemonade.  I think I'm going to switch it up a bit and try lime juice next time!

2 c. strawberries, hulled and roughly chopped
2 tsp. sugar
3/4 c. sugar (more or less according to taste)
1 c. lemon juice (sometimes I add a bit more to prevent it from getting diluted when I serve it over ice)
5 c. water  (1 1/2 c. hot water, 3 1/2 c. cold)

Combine strawberries and 2 tsp. sugar in a blender or food processor until desired consistency (I like to leave it a bit chunky).  Mix remaining sugar with 1 1/2 c. hot water until dissolved;  add lemon juice and remaining water.  Stir in strawberries.  Chill and enjoy.


  1. this looks delicious! i think i'll try it with frozen strawberries to make it slushyish!

  2. That sounds yummy! I'm thinking you could also make it and stick the whole pitcher in the freezer for 45 minutes or so to slushify...great idea!

  3. I'm going to be making this too. It will make a fabulous addition to our Father's day menu!
