Our Strawberry Lemonade recipe maximizes the bright flavor of fresh-squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest, and adds just enough sweetness to temper its tartness. We muddled (or mashed together) a thinly sliced lemon and strawberries with sugar to sweeten the lemonade. In this process, the sugar crystals absorb the intense flavor of the oils in the lemon peel and bring out the fruit’s flavor, making for a lemonade recipe that can cool down any summer day.

Serves 6 to 8

If fresh summer strawberries aren’t available, use frozen berries. Just defrost in a microwave set on high for 3 minutes. If you prefer, swap the strawberries for either blueberries or raspberries.
