Strawberry Lemonade


Strawberry Lemonade

Ingredients

1 pound strawberries, hulled
1 (59-ounce) container Simply Lemonade

Method

Puree the strawberries in the blender FIRST. If you do the berries and juice together, by the time the berries are liquified, a huge foam head will have formed and you won't be able to fit a lot of it back into the original container.

Once the strawberries are pureed, pour in the lemonade to the top line of your blender glass, then press the lowest setting on your blender (mine is "Stir") for just a couple of seconds, to combine.

Voila. Strawberry lemonade.


Pour as much back into the container as will fit. You'll probably have just a bit left in the bottom of the blender. Drink it immediately, straight out of the blender glass. No, not really. *Cough*

NOTES

One of my own brilliant (!) ideas. Do it while strawberries are in season; it's spectacular. It was a huge hit at my birthday party four weeks ago and I've been making it constantly ever since.
