Strawberry Lemonade

Some days lately it’s been really warm here.  Like summer warm.  Even when it was March!  Which is fine with me.  I can’t wait until summer.  I’ve been thinking about it everyday since November.  :)

So the last really warm day we had I decided that I would pretend it was summer and make a batch of strawberry lemonade.  I should have made a few batches because it was gone that night.  So good.

You need to boil about 2 cups of water.  Then add 1 cup sugar.  Lower the heat and let simmer until sugar disolves.  Add a little bit of lemon peel and squeeze about 1 cup of lemon juice.  Stir and remove from the heat.  I pour mine into a big bowl.

Add a pint of hulled and halved strawberries to the simple syrup mixture.  Stir and let it cool.  Then toss in the blender.  Add another 2 cups or so of water/club soda/sparkling water (it depends on how strong you like your lemonade!) and put in the refridgerator to chill.  (Ours didn’t have time to chill - it just got sucked down!)
Serve over ice (and with your rim lined with sugar - I know right!?)
Yum.  So good!
What reminds you of summer?
And for your pinning pleasure :)
