Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lb strawberries washed & cut in halves, about 4 cups
  • 2 lemons washed and quartered (use limes to make strawberry limeade)
  • ~ ½- ¾ cup honey or sugar to taste adjust based on your preference and sweetness of strawberries
  • 6 cups of water
  • Ice

Garnishes:

  • Strawberry slices lemon slices and/or fresh herbs (mint, lemon verbena, lemon balm, basil)

Instructions

  • Blend the strawberries, lemons and honey with 2 cups of water
  • Strain the strawberry lemon mix, add the additional 4 cups of water through the strainer
  • Taste and add additional honey/sugar if needed
  • Serve cold over ice and garnished with strawberry slices, lemon slices and herbs

Method 2 (this one helps make the straining easier and keeps all strawberry goodness):

  • First blend only the strawberries with the honey and 1 cup of water. You don’t need to strain this, it’s better to keep all the strawberries goodness. Then place the blended strawberries mix in a pitcher.
  • Then in the same blender, you don’t need to wash or rinse it, blend the quartered lemons with the 1-2 cups of water.
  • Strain the lemon mix into the pitcher, mix well and add the rest of the water. Taste and adjust sweetness level if needed.
  • Serve as indicated above.

Notes

For a refreshing summer cocktail, add your choice of alcohol. You can use vodka, tequila, rum and even cachaça – for a quick strawberry caipirihna. You can also mix the strained mixed with white wine or sparkling wine, instead of the additional 4 cups of water, for delicious strawberry sangria.
