Lemonade with a Twist

Whenever a recipe calls for lemon juice, it’s always an obnoxiously small amount, and I’m left wondering what to do with the rest of the nearly whole, perfectly good lemon left over.
Come to think of it, I believe there is even a saying about this type of situation. ;)
Here is a simple twist to traditional lemonade: Just add strawberries!

Here’s what you can do:
– mash, crush, puree, whatever your cut strawberries (leave a few whole slices for later)
– Squeeze your nearly discarded lemon into a glass of ice water
– Stir in your pulverized strawberries
– Top off with your pretty slices & enjoy!

The crushed strawberries’ natural sugar adds just enough sweet for a perfect summer cool-down drink. I definitely recommend making this as a large batch.
Just grab a pitcher, a few more lemons, and blend away.

If want want to get really spiffy, just add someĀ Strawberry Ice… yes, as in the cube.
