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.
How to Make Strawberry Lemonade
- In a small sauce pan mix together sugar, and water. Simmer over medium heat and bring to a simmer to dissolve sugar. Set aside and let cool.
- Squeeze lemons until you get about 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.
