Strawberry Lemonade

This was an adaptation from a Betty Crocker recipe for Raspberry Lemonade. I've got a bit of a flavored lemonade obsession going on and this was absolutely perfect!

What you need:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 container (16 oz.) frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed (The original recipe calls for 10 oz. of raspberries)
  • 3/4 cup water
  1. Mix sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Heat over medium, stirring one time, until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
  2. Mix sugar syrup, lemon juice, and 3 1/2 cups water into a nonmetal pitcher.
  3. Strain syrup from thawed fruit into the pitcher, reserving berries; refrigerate.
  4. Distribute berries evenly in an ice cube tray, then using the 3/4 cup water, fill the sections up. Freeze for around 2 hours or until firm.
  5. Serve the lemonade with the berry ice cubes :)
