Strawberry Lemonade

Ahhhh... Summer is here, and its time to cool down with a refreshing strawberry lemonade! Yumm...! Since the past 3 weeks, its become a Sunday ritual to make strawberry lemonade, and we have it almost everyday. Its citrusy, yet sweet and so pretty looking!! :) You could even add mint juice to make a mint strawberry lemonade, sounds good ha! :)


20 strawberries
3 big lemons
Simple syrup(recipe follows)
full tray of ice cubes
8 cups of water

Simple Syrup:
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar


To make the simple syrup, at medium heat in a saucepan, add the sugar and water, and stir it gently till the sugar dissolves. Let cool.

Puree the strawberries along with the lemon juice. Strain the strawberry puree through a sieve(may not be fine). Add the water and simple syrup and stir. Now, strain again into a pouring jar through a very fine sieve to remove all the strawberry seeds, so that clear liquid comes out.

Add the ice cubes, and its ready to sip and take you all through summer! ;)
