Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

 

Lemonade is good, but Strawberry Lemonade is better!  So easy to make and a great spring and summer treat. 

 

INGREDIENTS

Wide Strips of Lemon Zest (of 1 Lemon)

2 Cups Sugar

2 Cups Chopped & Hulled Strawberries

2 Cups Fresh Lemon Juice

1 1/2 Cups Water

2 Cups Cold Water

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

 

In a medium size saucepan bring the lemon zest, 1 1/2; cups sugar and 1 1/2 cups water to a boil.  Cook until the sugar dissolves while stirring constantly.  Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.  To make the strawberry syrup toss the strawberries and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl and let sit at room temperature until the sugar dissolves for about 50 minutes.  Strain the strawberry mixture and reserve the strawberry syrup and berries separately.  Now you are ready to make the lemonade.  Combine the lemon juice (which should come from about 10 lemons), lemon syrup, salt and 2 cups of cold water in a pitcher.  For each drink, put about 1 tablespoon of the strawberry syrup in a tall glass.  Fill with ice and top with the lemonade and some of the reserved strawberries.  Serves 6
