The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade

From HeathersDish.com >> make sure to check her site for insider tips to making this top notch refreshment.

(makes 2 pint-glass servings with ice)

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large lemons, microwaved for 30 seconds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries, microwaved for 1 minute

In a blender squeeze the lemons and add the rest of the lemon, rind and all.  Pour in the water and sugar.  Add the strawberries.  Pulse until everything starts to come together and the rind is starting to be processed.  Remove the blade (or place the entire contents of the blender into a microwavable pitcher) and microwave for another 2 minutes.  You can do all of this on stove top if you’d prefer, but the microwave is easy and quick.  Refrigerate for about 1 hour, then strain into glasses loaded with ice.  Enjoy!
