My boyfriend and I made strawberry lemonade! I found a really great recipe on How Sweet It Is through the site Yummly.
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1/3 cup mint leaves
Combine the sugar and water in a small sauce pan to make a simple syrup. Whisk the mixture until the sugar dissolves and bring it to a boil. Once it starts to boil, remove from heat and place in the fridge for ten minutes.
Puree the mint and strawberries. Then add the lemon juice and simple syrup, pureeing again.
We strained our lemonade once to remove some pulp, but we could have strained it again in our opinion.
As a garnish we added some sliced strawberries, lemon slices, and a mint leaf!
