The Heat is On!
Our sleepy Savannah town has officially hit the full fledged heat of Summer. It's time to turn this humid burden into something to celebrate by crafting up a glass of something chilly to beat the heat. Strawberry Lemonade is one of those smoldering summer drinks that comes to mind. But instead of all those sugary sweet options out there, why not make it at home with real fruits and a smidgen of organic sugar? This recipe works best in a Vitamix or other industrial-strength blender. Great for hot weather grill outs, romantic picnics, or a moment of self pampering.
Iced Strawberry Lemonade
- 10 strawberries
- 2/3 cup organic sugar
- 4 whole lemons, with rinds cut off
- 3 cups ice
- 1 1/2 cup water
Place the strawberries and 1/3 cup of sugar in the blender with 1/2 cup of ice and 1/2 cup of water. Blend until pureed. Pour into the bottom of 4 glasses.
Rinse your blender with water, then add the lemons, remaining sugar, ice, and water. With your blender on variable speed #1, begin blending. Quickly increase the speed then turn the blender to high. Blend until smooth. Pour immediately over the strawberry mixture. Serve with straws and spoons & enjoy!
