WOW! First time making this - but won't be the last. I used some frozen cubes of lemon juice from lemons that were juiced, "FoodSavered" and frozen several months ago, which is a great idea if your lemon tree goes bonkers dropping 17 of its little bits of yellow perfection per day, then decides not to produce a single piece of fruit for a few months *ahem*. But I digress. (I always do.) I loved the making of the sugar syrup first instead of just mixing everything up. We were totally hooked from the first sip (actually I was hooked from the first wasp of strawberry scent peeping out of the blender). Thank you so much for sharing this, Ms. Shopper! :o)
This was excellent! I used organic sugar and organic strawberries. Much cheaper to make this at home than to buy the bottled organic strawberry lemonade that I usually purchase at the grocery store. I will be making this a lot while strawberries are in season.
This was excellent! The only thing I did differently was I added a few raspberries in when blending the strawberries (since I needed to use them up) and I couldn't wait to drink it so I just took ice and put them in glasses and poured the lemonade over them and within a minute they were cool enough to drink. Thanks for sharing!
awesome! i made it with limes as well. just as good!
I made this tonight and we really enjoyed...but I had to tweak it first. I'm sure this is due just to personal preference, but the strawberry flavor really overpowered the lemon so I think that 1 pint of berries would be plenty for us. After making I tried it and then added a batch of regular lemonade to it..to kinda dilute the strawberry flavor. I really like the idea of using the zest in the syrup mixture.
Super sweet and yummy!
This is awesome!! I'm lazy so I didn't do the whole bowl with ice part. I just mixed in the strawberries and then strained and put it in the fridge in a glass pitcher. I can't wait to try this again when strawberries are in season and sweeter.
