Best Ingredients for Strawberry Lemonade

  • Lemons – to make our batch of lemonade you will need roughly 6-8 lemons. Freshly squeezed is a must!
  • Strawberries – you will want to hull 1/2 pound to 1 pound of strawberries and puree them in a food processor.  Once pureed you can push the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. This step is optional, if you don’t mind seeds you can skip this step. 
  • Sugar – this get’s perfectly dissolved into the simple syrup you will make.
