Just like an outfit isn’t complete without the right piece, summer isn’t complete without the right drink. Summertime is nearing its end but it wouldn’t be complete without a healthy glass of spiked strawberry lemonade. Better late than never, here’s a sweet and easy recipe for this timeless warm-weather essential.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED (serves four)
16 ounces of strawberries
1 cup sugar
3 medium lemons
2 tablespoons of honey
2 cups drinking water
2 cups seltzer water
HOW TO MAKE
Gently roll the lemons down between your palm and a counter-top to get the juices flowing. Halve the lemons and squeeze the juice through a strainer into a pitcher.
In a medium saucepan, bring drinking water and sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool completely, then pour into the pitcher.
Puree strawberries and honey in a blender. Transfer to the pitcher and refrigerate until well chilled.
