We had to use up some strawberries….hence strawberry-lemonade! A perfect summertime treat!

Heat 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar–until sugar dissolves. Set aside and cool.

Get yourself some fabulous lemons (we squeezed 6 lemons)

In a blender, combine 3 cups water, 1/2 c sugar and 2 c fresh strawberries. Process until smooth.
Add in cooled syrup, 1T lemon peel, 1 c lemon juice. Stir and enjoy!
