Can you believe the Fourth of July is almost here? Crazy how fast the summer goes by. I love strawberry lemonade as in, I LOVE it. I decided to mess around with the recipe and make something that is delicious and super cute to have for our cookout this year. I honestly think this is the best lemonade I’ve made and it’s packed full of fruit too which makes it even better!
2 liters water
1 pint strawberries
1 pkg blueberries
1 cup Turbinado Sugar (or other sugar alternative)
First, wash and dry the strawberries and set aside in a bowl. Then, fill a pitcher with 2 liters water and squeeze in the lemon juice from about 5 lemons. You can use more or less lemons if you’d like. Stir the water well and add in the sugar and blueberries. I use Turbinado Sugar from Sugar in the Raw but, you can use whatever sugar alternative you’d like or real sugar. Just make sure to stir until dissolved.
With your hands or a potato masher, squish the strawberries. I washed my hands, grabbed the strawberries and squeezed them in the bowl. Then, add that bowl of squished strawberries to the lemonade. You’ll have a great mixture of lemonade, blueberries and strawberries. Finally, add the ice and serve.
I like to serve it in a mason jar simply because everything is cuter in a mason jar. But when it’s just me, I pour it into a Rib Crib cup and drink it up! 😉
