Today I thought we would do something a little different. If y’all like it I will make every Thursday a “Thirsty Thursday”. We can have a different drink every week instead of our regular food recipes we have all the other days. I think it will be fun! The drinks can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic OR frozen or not frozen.
Now that it’s getting to be summer, Today’s Drink is one of my favorites.
“The Best Strawberry Lemonade”
6 large lemons
½ cup of strawberry puree
4 large strawberries, cut up
1¼ cups cane sugar
2-3 cups hot filtered water
2 cups ice
Start by adding about one cup of strawberries to your blender and puree for a few seconds and set aside. I use a Ninja Blender because it really pulverizes just like the restaurants and it gets it very smooth.
Next, add about 2 inches of hot water to the bottom of the pitcher. Then add in your sugar and mix until dissolved.
Cut and squeeze 5 of your lemons into the pitcher.
Add in your strawberry puree and mix until combined.
Then add in 2 cups of ice and stir a little more.
After it’s mixed well and tastes to your liking, add in one cut up lemons and 4 cut up strawberries. Vu-Wa-la The best homemade strawberry lemonade ever.
**NOTE** You can NOT use a Ninja food processor to make cole slaw. I tried to and I guess I over chopped the cabbage and I made cole slaw soup… We’re still laughing about it today. Oh well, trial and error. LoL
Anyway, please let me know what you think about the “Thirsty Thursday” suggestion. Thank You
Until next time…
