(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Lemonade (Classic and Strawberry) Summer is around the corner and I love this time of year! It means more time with my grandkids, a relaxed schedule and of course endless days of sun, pool and pure bliss! I like to serve refreshing Lemonade on these hot summer days. It’s definitely a must-have for fun summer outings like picnics or casual lunches if you are entertaining. Today I am making two different lemonades – traditional classic Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade. It’s the perfect pick-me-up drink! For simple syrup - 1 cup sugar - 1 cup water (this is to make simple syrup) - 1/­­4 cup fresh mint leaves lemonade - 3 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice - 1/­­2 cup simple syrup (adjust to taste) - 1/­­4 tsp salt - 1/­­8 tsp black pepper (grounded) - 2 cup cold water (approximately) - Mint leaves and lemon slices to garnish - Ice Strawberry lemonade - 1 cup strawberries (trimmed and sliced) - 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice -  1/­­2 cup simple syrup (adjust as needed) - 2 cup cold water (approximately) - Ice - First make a “simple syrup”. Place the sugar, water and mint leaves in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir so that the sugar dissolves completely and turn off the heat. - After syrup cools off, strain the syrup to remove the mint leaves. - This syrup can be made in advance and can be refrigerated. Classic Lemon lemonade - Mix simple syrup, lemon juice, salt and black pepper to the water and pour over ice. Garnish with mint leaves and lemon slice. Strawberry lemonade -  Save few slices of strawberry for garnishing and purée rest of the strawberries with 1/­­4 cup of water in a blender until smooth -  Then strain the puree into a bowl to remove seeds. -  Stir together strawberry purée, with lemon juice, simple syrup, and water in a pitcher mix it well. -  Taste, then add more sugar if desired. Serve over ice. Add few pieces of strawberry to the glass. Tip: Every ingredient in this recipe can be adjusted to your taste.  Variations Replace water with soda water. Add one tablespoon fresh ginger juice. The post Lemonade (Classic /­­ Strawberry) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.
