Refreshing, ice cold strawberry lemonade made from scratch. You only need 4 ingredients to make this sweet drink for Summer time.
I’ve always been a strawberry lemonade fan. When we go out to eat, it’s generally what I order to drink, especially on hot summer days. Plain lemonade is OK, but why limit yourself when you can add some delicious mulled strawberries for an even sweeter drink?
Making your own strawberry lemonade is really simple and doesn’t require any special ingredients or a lot of time. All you need are some strawberries, lemons and sugar. Oh, and a fancy pilsner glass you just HAD to have on your wedding registry definitely makes the strawberry lemonade taste better.
OK that might be stretching, but it at least makes it look nicer right?
Enjoy this cool refreshing strawberry lemonade on a hot day, or just because you feel like it. Do you really need a reason to make it anyway?
