Strawberry Lemonade

This is a perfect drink for a summer afternoon!!

Recipe obtained HERE!


  • ~8 large lemons (1 1/2 cups lemon juice)
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water, boiled
  • 1 tablespoon lemon grind
  • 5 cups water
  • 3-4 sliced strawberries


  1. Squeeze lemons into a measuring cup.  This should yield the necessary 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.  I usually buy a couple extra lemons, just in case it takes more than 8 to yield this amount of lemon juice.
  2. Pour the lemon juice through a strainer in order to get rid of most (hopefully all) of the pulp.  Set aside.
  3. Bring water to boil.
  4. Put sugar in pitcher and add boiled water.  Mix until sugar is dissolved.
  5. Add lemon juice, water, and lemon rind.
  6. Ideally, use this pitcher:  Primula infuser can be found at Bed Bath & Beyond.  Add strawberries into the fruit infuser.  Serve over ice.
