Hello again! Jordan here, and today I’m sharing my recipe for strawberry lemonade.  I love fresh squeezed lemonade, especially in the summer.  It’s pretty much summer in a glass, don’t you think?  So when you add juicy, ripe strawberries into the picture it’s practically impossible to not enjoy a serving without a smile on your face.

Freshly squeezed lemon juice is key for this delicious lemonade.   I can always tell the difference between artificial and freshly squeezed lemonade.  In fact, I won’t even purposely drink artificial lemonade – I can’t stand it.  And I actually don’t mix up fresh juice that often anymore.  That’s probably why I feel that this strawberry lemonade is such a treat.

I lucked out with getting perfectly ripe strawberries for my lemonade.  Here’s a tip: get smaller strawberries that are deep red for super juicy sweet strawberries.

After I squeeze my lemons and mix up the juice with sugar and water, all I do is add the sliced strawberries.  It only takes about an hour in the refrigerator for the strawberries to infuse their flavor with the lemonade.  After the strawberries have been soaking for awhile, I like to mix up the lemonade some more with a whisk to break up the strawberry slices.  I love having the little bits of strawberry in each serving.
