Strawberry Lemonade

We've got a monstrous lemon tree in our yard and a small strawberry patch that provides a surprising amount of strawberries. I'm out there every other day picking strawberries, and this is a great way to get good use out of both.

For Mother's Day, we went on a hike with the in-laws and and a picnic afterwards. Part of my contribution to the picnic was strawberry lemonade. It's perfect for a picnic on a nice day and ridiculously easy to make.

- 1 cup of lemon juice
- 5 cups of water
- 1/2 cup of strawberries
- LOTS of sugar (to taste)

- Put lemon juice, water and strawberries in a blender and blend. There will be lots of foam at the top.

- Give it some time to settle and scoop the foam off the top.
- Serve over ice (and maybe a bit of vodka too!)

Thanks to Paved with Good Intentions suggestion, I'm entering this post to Joelen's Tasty Tools Event! Yay, my first blogging event!
