What is Strawberry Lemonade? Sadly, many would say it's store-bought lemonade with three pumps of artificially flavored strawberry syrup. Ugh. I knew I couldn’t let that be my children's idea of Strawberry Lemonade so I came up with this fresh alternative - chock-full of organic strawberries and fresh squeezed lemon juice.
