In this summer heat, there are few things more refreshing than cold and icy, lightly sweetened, freshly squeezed lemonade. And what could be better than lemonade with fresh strawberries? For the book club dinner last week, I made a pitcher of Strawberry Lemonade. It went so fast that I forgot to take a picture until we'd already drunk half of it!
- 6 cups crushed ice
- 10 lemons (squeeze the juice from 8 of the lemons and thinly slice the other 2 lemons)
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
In a glass pitcher, combine the ice, lemon juice, lemon slices, strawberries and sugar. Fill with cold water and stir until sugar is dissolved.
