Sometimes, when you think of lemonade and how delicious and refreshing it is, you may think it takes a 100 ingredients to make it that perfectly delicious. But truth be told, it is just four ingredients that you need to make this delicious strawberry lemonade.
Strawberry Lemonade ingredients
- Strawberries - fresh organic strawberries that are in season in summer are the best.
- Lemons - fresh lemons that you squeeze then and there is what adds all that tangy flavor to this lemonade. Do not use lemon juice in a bottle.
- Granulated sugar - use organic granulated sugar to make the simple syrup with.
- Water - enough to make the simple syrup and more to add with some ice to make the lemonade.
To make Strawberry Lemonade
- Puree strawberries - hull the strawberries and puree them in a blender or food processor.
- Squeeze lemons - squeeze the fresh lemons and scoop out any seeds that may have escaped.
- Make simple syrup - bring granulated sugar and water to a boil and remove from heat. Let it come to room temperature to form simple syrup.
- Mix everything together and add more water and ice to taste.
Can you freeze strawberry lemonade?
Yes, you can. You can freeze the strawberry lemonade concentrate with just the pureed strawberries, simple syrup and lemon juice and add water and ice to it once thawed, to make strawberry lemonade.
I would suggest using a freezer ziploc bag and double bag it, just to be safe. Add strawberry lemonade concentrate to fill about ¾ of the bag. Lay the bag flat on a baking tray and freeze. Once frozen, you can store in the refrigerator for up to 6 months or so.
Is strawberry lemonade the same as pink lemonade?
Not really. Pink lemonade is technically lemonade with a little cranberry juice, strawberry or raspberry juice concentrate or flavors to add to the color. Mostly, just red food color is used to give it that pink color. It definitely will not have the fresh sweet strawberry flavor that you will find in this strawberry lemonade recipe.
