Strawberry Lemonade

This recipe is amazing. I've made it twice, the second time reducing the sugar content because with the great refreshing flavor you don't need that much sugar!
½C sugar
½C water
1 pint fresh strawberries
1C fresh lemon juice (~8 lemons)
8C cold water

  1. Make simple syrup by combing the sugar with ½ cup of water in a saucepan.
  2. Place over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, swirling the pan occasionally. Let cool.
  3. Once the simple syrup has cooled, puree strawberries in a blender with 1C water.
  4. In a large pitcher, combine strawberry puree, simple syrup, and lemon juice.
  5. Add remaining 7 cups of water.
  6. Stir well.
  7. Refrigerate and serve over ice.
  8. Enjoy!
