Author Notes: Lemonade has never been my drink of choice, but flavored lemonade? Sign me up. Below is an adaptation of Deb Perelman's recipe for Pink Lemonade, which has a seductively pink hue from actual berries and not artificial food coloring like gas station pink lemonade. And since lemonade is my farmer's drink of choice, it's refreshing to find ways to dress it up a bit. And yes, even manly men drink pink. —Samantha Ardry
Makes: 1 quart
cup (5-6 oz) strawberries, hulled and sliced
cup lemon juice
- In a blender, combine the sliced strawberries with the sugar. Let the berries macerate for about 15-20 minutes until syrupy.
- Blend the mixture until smooth, then pour into a container. Add the lemon juice and water to the container and stir well. Taste and add more sugar if you prefer it sweeter.
- Serve over ice.
