This is the best strawberry lemonade you will ever taste! Made with freshly squeezed lemons and fresh strawberries, it's pure perfection!
Recipe type: Drink
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10 servings
  • 1 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed from about 6 lemons)
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lb strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 1¼ cup sugar, divided
  • 9 cups water, divided
  1. Slice the strawberries and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle ½ cup of sugar over the sliced strawberries, and stir with a spoon. Set aside for 1 hour at room temperature, so the strawberries will release the juice and the sugar dissolves. After 1 hour, press on the strawberries with the back of the spoon so they release even more juice.
  2. In a saucepan, combine ¾ cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and stir, so the sugar is dissolved. Set the sugar syrup aside and let it cool.
  3. In a serving pitcher, pour 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar syrup and 8 cups of cold water. Add the strawberries with their juice and lemon slices.
