Strawberry Lemonade


I made this drink for the Christmas Party and It was a great hit. I pinned it on Pinterest a while back and adapted it to my taste. Hubby and I like it so much, so I decided to make it again. I don't think I've ever had Strawberry lemonade like this, it's tasty but not sugary, the taste and smell of fresh fruit and lemon definitely can't be missed. It's thicker than the regular lemonade but that's what you get when you use real fruits and process less. 
Enjoy!

Ingredients
1 1/2 lb Strawberries, divided
3 lemons
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar, to taste
6 cups of water
Ice

Directions
1. Wash and cut in halves 1 1/4 lb strawberries. Wash and quarter 2 lemons
2. Blend in two portion halve strawberries, lemon wedges and sugar with 2 cups of water
3. Place strainer over a large container and strain the strawberry lemon mix
4. Add the addition 4 cups of water through the strainer
5. Mix, taste and add additional sugar to taste
6. Serve and garnish with remaining 1/4 lb strawberry and lemon (I mashed my garnish strawberries just a little bit to get the juice out)
