Strawberry Lemonade

One last recipe from our birthday extravaganza, and it's an easy but oh-so-good one! I remember my mom making this when I was younger. Incredibly refreshing, this will hit the spot on a hot summer day.

Just as a reminder, if you want the entire menu from our party, you'll find it here. Also, this is a great recipe to make if you have any strawberry puree leftover from making the frosting for the Strawberry Cupcakes.

1 12-oz. container frozen lemonade concentrate
5 large strawberries, cleaned and stemmed
powdered sugar, to taste

In a large pitcher, prepare lemonade according to package directions.

Place strawberries in a blender and add a splash of prepared lemonade. Puree strawberries until smooth. Add strawberries to lemonade and stir. Taste lemonade. Stir in a sprinkle of powdered sugar until proper sweetness is reached. Serve over ice.

Tip: I use powdered sugar because it dissolves quickly into the lemonade. The amount you use will really depend on how sweet your strawberries taste.
