Love strawberries?
Love lemonade?

It's time to put them both together for the perfect summer beverage!
This delightfully refreshing strawberry lemonade is so easy you'll never buy the powdered mix again.

Ingredients:
• 1/2 pound fresh strawberries, stems removed
• 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
• 4 1/2 or 5 cups water, divided
• 1 1/2 cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)
Steps:
1. Puree strawberries using a blender or food processor. (Strain the puree through a fine-mesh sieve if you don't want seeds in your lemonade.)
2. Make the simple syrup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together sugar and 2 cups of water.
3. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
4. Strain the lemon juice through a fine-mesh sieve into a 2-quart pitcher. Add simple syrup and strawberry puree and stir to combine. Refrigerate until cold.
5. Add 2 1/2 cups of cold water and stir. Taste, and add more water if it's too sweet.
6. Serve over ice and enjoy!
