Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

This will be the best strawberry lemonade you will ever taste – period. Made with naturally pressed lemons and sweet cut strawberries, on the off chance that I could depict its preference for single word, that word would be HAPPY. Sweet, tart, fragrant and refreshingly revitalizing – you need this lemonade at the present time, yes you do!

In the event that you at any point scanned for strawberry lemonade formulas on the web, a large portion of them get the strawberry season from pureeing strawberries in a nourishment processor and blending them into the lemonade.

The issue with that technique is that rather than the strawberry juice you get the strawberry mush 🙂 The strawberry puree just makes the lemonade shady and doesn't give you as great of the strawberry enhance as the unadulterated strawberry juice.

My strawberry lemonade formula removes the strawberry juice from the strawberries by cutting the strawberries, sprinkling them with sugar and forgetting them on the counter for 60 minutes. The sugar will draw out the strawberry juice like enchantment, in addition to you'll have these scrumptious and lovely strawberry cuts that you can add to your lemonade pitcher!

Homemade Strawberry Lemonade


Ingredients :

  • 1 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed from about 6 lemons)
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lb strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 1¼ cup sugar, divided
  • 9 cups water, divided

Instructions :

  1. Slice the strawberries and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle ½ cup of sugar over the sliced strawberries, and stir with a spoon. Set aside for 1 hour at room temperature, so the strawberries will release the juice and the sugar dissolves. After 1 hour, press on the strawberries with the back of the spoon so they release even more juice.
  2. In a saucepan, combine ¾ cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and stir, so the sugar is dissolved. Set the sugar syrup aside and let it cool.
  3. In a serving pitcher, pour 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar syrup and 8 cups of cold water. Add the strawberries with their juice and lemon slices.
