One-Step Strawberry Lemonade [Recipe]

strawblemonade-6ed

Okay everybody, before I get into the complexities of the easiest recipe on the planet, I have a question for you: What are your favourite blogs? And another question, what is your favourite thing to read in your spare time?

I ask because I love writing, I love taking pictures, I love cooking/baking, and I love blogging (given the previous three things, that should be obvious). The other thing I love is people, and I would LOVE to make this blog a bit more relational for you, the people who read it. So, I ask you – What do you enjoy? I want to see if I can give a little more than just food to those who stop in for a visit from time to time. Consider this blog my home, and I want to make you feel welcome here.

Leave me a comment, if you would, to let me know your thoughts!

….At any rate, back to the main point – The easiest recipe in the land!!

This drink is the simplest, fastest way to make lemonade, and in my opinion it never disappoints. All you gotta do is throw everything into a jar, shake it up, and serve.

Here’s how it’s done:

Strawberry Lemonade
Serves 3

Ingredients:
3 c. water
6 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 c. lemon juice (1-2 lemons)
Handful fresh or frozen strawberries, whole or chopped
Lemon wedges or slices, optional
Ice, to serve

Directions:
(1) Combine all ingredients in a quart jar. Shake well, and serve.

Yes. It is that easy. I suppose there’s a tiny bit of prep work involved in slicing fruit (if you want) and juicing lemons (if you want). There’s always the option to cheat on either of those things (whole strawberries and bottled lemon juice)… But I think I will suggest, for your own benefit, that you use fresh squeezed lemon juice if you want the full effect of joy in this experience.

Another option: Throw some fresh mint in there and shake it up as well. Perfect-o.

Delicious, simple, and refreshing.

Happy summer!
