I decided today would be a perfect day
to make use of that adorable pitcher I bought a few weeks back.
I’m on a saving money kick and I needed something to occupy my afternoon.
I picked some fresh lemons from the tree at my apartment,
used the fresh strawberries from my boyfriend’s aunt’s garden,
pinned a strawberry lemonade recipe,
and here we have it!
Sweet Summer Lemonade.
-1 cup fresh lemon juice
-1 cup sugar
-2 cups sliced strawberries
1. Combine the lemon juice and sugar in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds to combine.
2. Add the strawberries and puree or pulse until the strawberries are at the desired chunkiness.
3. Pour the lemon/strawberry mixture into a pitcher and add 4 cups of cold water.
4. Mix well and serve chilled. (Makes about 8 glasses)
So easy, right?
Mine turned out a smudge tart, but I’m okay with that.
Not to mention I only had 1/2 cup sugar in the cupboard,
but I had already started my Pinterest adventure!
Off enjoying a glass of this summer treat!
And crossing yet another “Summer Bucket List” item off the list!
