Introduction: Strawberry Lemonade

Picture of Strawberry Lemonade

Lemonade is a great refreshing summer drink, but what makes it even more amazing is throwing in strawberries!  Here are two ways to whip up a glass this summer, plus you can always freeze it and enjoy a delicious Frozen Strawberry Lemonade treat!


*I meant to make this back on the day I made the Easy Frozen Lemonade, but I held out too long and my strawberries molded the morning I needed them :(  So, after the lemonade tasted so awesome, I had to still try to make a strawberry version.

Step 1: Supplies

This is pretty simple and you can replace things as you need to.

Ingredients:
  • Strawberries
  • Sugar
  • Lemons
  • Water
  • Simple Syrup (you probably don't need this, I just like how it sweetened it up, also you could just try adding more sugar to the strawberry sauce/compote)
Utensils:

Step 2: Prepare

First you need to prepare your fruits. 

Lemons
Squeeze the juice from your lemons.  Easy.  I only used 3/4 cup, but it never hurts to have more!

Strawberries
We are going to follow the steps from my Strawberry Sauce Instructable.  I ended up needing 2 cups worth of this.  I think I used up most of what I made so here is what I used.
  • 3c Strawberries (1c = approximately 10 strawberries)
  • 1/2c Sugar
Chop up your strawberries.  You are going to blend this so they can be any size, but I always like to cut them into small cubes.  Cook the strawberries and sugar on the stove until they are soft.  Once you are done, let it cool and blend the strawberries with hand blender or blender until smooth.  Cool mixture.

Step 3: Blend

I mixed up some and then added more so I will give you the approximation of my end strawberry lemonade.  Change amounts to suit your taste.
  • 5c Water
  • 2c Strawberry Compote/Sauce
  • 3/4c Lemon Juice
  • 3/4c Simple Syrup
Blend it up.  You can strain it if you want, I did not.  Enjoy it right now or...

Step 4: Freeze It!

Everything is good frozen!  Freeze up some of the strawberry lemonade and mix it like you did with the Easy Frozen Lemonade

Blend it all up, throw on some strawberry chunks and enjoy!

Step 5: Alternate Version

Picture of Alternate Version
For this version you just use raw strawberries instead of the sauce/compote.  This is the faster, easier, less fancy version.  Also doesn't have the deeper red color.

Recipe (increase amounts as needed):
  • 1 c Water
  • 2/3 c Strawberries
  • 1/3 c Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 c Simple Sugar
Mix it all together and then blend with the hand blender.  Strain if you would like.

Even though both versions are similar, I prefer the strawberry sauce/compote version.  I personally felt it had less of that bite you get when you eat a raw strawberry.

In the last image, you can see them side by side.  The one on the right is the compote/sauce version and the left is the raw.  Pretty similar looking.

My wife gets these strawberries that are sort of syrupy and we throw some of that at the bottom of a cup and poor country time lemonade and it is so good. I gotta try yours though it looks good too

Oh yes, that sounds wonderful :)

Shane1163 (author)2013-07-30

U forgot vodka..

Haha! Wait for my next one :)

vincent7520 (author)2013-07-30

Gréât
Thé second version is thé best and way more Fanny as coking and ferez inf. Strawberries ruin it's taste at 100%.
Do not Forget that Many cooks recommend not to wash but clearing them Wotherspoon a dry cloth only as thé flavor un thaïs fruit is ni thé skin only not ni thé pull

vincent7520 (author)vincent75202013-07-30

Sorry for thé typos (french automatic corrector )
"Ni thé skin not on thé pulp "

mikeasaurus (author)2013-07-29
