Strawberry Lemonade - A recipe!

For your Labor Day barbecue or just for a sweet, refreshing drink - strawberry lemonade.  Now I love recipes with few ingredients, so just buy some delicious lemonade and strawberries and you can make this!

I recommend using both fresh and frozen strawberries.  The fresh berries look much better and have a more pleasant texture, but the frozen strawberries add a lot more flavor!

Start by cutting the fresh strawberries in halves, thirds, or quarters depending on the sizes of the berries.  (The riper the strawberries the better the flavor.)  Put them in your pitcher along with any frozen berries you will be using.

Add the lemonade.  Refrigerate for at least an hour.  The longer the strawberries are in the lemonade, the more their flavor will mix with the lemonade.  If you let it sit long enough, the lemonade will be pink when you pour it into a glass. 

You can use a spoon to scoop out some strawberries to add to the glasses or just place a few slices in each glass before pouring the lemonade.  Enjoy!
