Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

I first became a huge fan when we were in moscow and the women there always had a fresh batch of lemonade. I had had fresh lemonade, but not much- bot enough to really appreciate it. That’s when I gain a love for real homemade lemonade, especially real, homemade strawberry lemonade.

How to make this easy strawberry lemonade recipe

You’ll need

  • FRESH fruit. Fresh strawberries and fresh lemon.
  • Sugar and water to make a syrup.

Wash and slice your strawberries in half. Then in a medium sauce pan add sugar, water and strawberries.

You are going to bring these to a boil, then simmer until the strawberries are just about nothin. It’s ok if they are smallish chunks. We’re going to strain them out!

Let the syrup cool a little bit and then strain out all the chunks. This is totally optional, if you desire you can leave it as is!

Add more water, chill in the refrigerator to chill then serve!!
