Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

I know, lemonade is for summers right? Well when you have had a month of inversions and it keeps snowing and snowing and snowing, I think a little bit of summer is just what's needed to lift the spirits! So refreshing and just amazing! Mmm Mmm!

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade
Makes about 8 cups of juice

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 5-8 lemons)
1 cup sugar
2 cups sliced, fresh strawberries

Combine the lemon juice and sugar in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds to combine. Add the strawberries and puree or pulse until the strawberries are at the desired chunkiness. I liked the strawberries slightly chunky but my husband preferred it to be more smooth – blend to your own preference!

Pour the lemon/strawberry mixture into a pitcher and add 4 cups of cold water. Mix well and serve chilled.
