This strawberry lemonade recipe is especially convenient when strawberries are in season. I mean, what is better than a delicious drink for a fraction of the cost?
This is a great choice for parties, barbecues, or for any other family get togethers. The perfect amount of lemon balances the sweet flavor of the strawberry syrup that forms the base of this recipe. You can use this same syrup to go with ice cream, crepes, or even cakes!
How Do You Make Strawberry Lemonade From Scratch?
To make this recipe, you will need to start by making the homemade strawberry syrup.
Do so by adding a 16 ounce package of fresh strawberries, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and 1/4 cup of water to a pot, and bringing it to a slow boil until the strawberries are soft (about 5-8 minutes). Then, let the syrup rest at room temperature.
Finish by blending the syrup with 1 cup of lemon juice, and 2 liters of water. Finally, pour the entire mixture into a pitcher and add ice, fresh cut strawberries, lemons, and ice.
You see? That wasn’t so difficult, was it? This recipe has served me very well over the years and everyone is impressed when they find out it is homemade.
