Introduction: 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
- 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)
Step 2: Prepare
Squeeze the juice from your lemons. Easy. I only used 3/4 cup, but it never hurts to have more!
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
Step 3: Blend
- 5c Water
- 2c Strawberry Compote/Sauce
- 3/4c Lemon Juice
- 3/4c Simple Syrup
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
Recipe (increase amounts as needed):
- 1 c Water
- 2/3 c Strawberries
- 1/3 c Lemon Juice
- 1/3 c Simple Sugar
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.
