Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups simple syrup (1 1/2 cups granulated sugar + 1 1/2 cups water, bring to a boil then cool)
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (810 medium lemons)
  • 2 cups strawberry juice (3 cups sliced strawberries + 2 tablespoons sugar)
  • sliced strawberries
  • lemon slices
  • fresh mint
  • ice

Instructions

  1. Begin this recipe a few hours ahead of time or the night before.
  2. Make the simple syrup and set aside to cool.
  3. Wash and slice the strawberries. Sprinkle with sugar and allow to soften and the sweetened strawberry juice to accumulate at least an hour. Over night is best.
  4. Pour the macerated strawberries into a blender and blend until smooth. Strain strawberry juice to remove most of the seeds. If using a high powered blender like a Blentec Blender you can skip straining.
  5. Mix the simple syrup, strawberry juice and lemon juice in a large pitcher and chill.
  6. To serve fill a 1/2 gallon pitcher half full with ice, add lemon slices and sliced strawberries.
  7. Pour the chilled strawberry lemonade into the pitcher with the ice until full.
  8. Fill a glass with ice, garnish with a lemon slice, a few slices of strawberry and a sprig of mint. Fill the glass with the strawberry lemonade to serve.
  9. Makes 1/2 gallon
