Sweet, tart and refreshing, this lemonade gets its pink color from fresh strawberries.
2 large lemons
1-1/2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
2 large strawberries
Ice cubes as needed (optional)
Cut lemons in half and juice. Should have about 1/2 cup juice.
Pour the lemon juice into a pitcher. Add the water and sugar. Stir with a long-handled spoon until the sugar is dissolved.
Cut of green stems from the strawberries. Cut strawberries in half.
Set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Put the strawberry halves in the strainer and mash with the back of a small spoon, pushing the strawberries into the lemonade. Make sure to scrape the underside of the strainer, adding what comes through the juice. Throw away anything left inside the strainer. Stir the lemonade until well blended and pink. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.
