Cool off this summer with a tall glass of refreshing strawberry lemonade! It's easy to make this delicious beverage.
To make the simple syrup, place the ¾ cup water and ¾ cup sugar in a small pan. Heat over medium low heat, stirring often, until the sugar is dissolved. You don't want the syrup to boil. Remove from heat and let cool.
Remove the caps from the strawberries and place in a blender, along with a couple tablespoons of water to help them blend easily. Blend until smooth.
Place a fine mesh sieve over a bowl, and pour the strawberry puree into it. Use the back of the spoon to press all the juice out, leaving the seeds behind in the sieve.
Store strawberry lemonade in the refrigerator for up to three days.
You could also make popsicles with this lemonade, and they would be very refreshing!
