Homemade lemonade is refreshing, invigorating, and much better than store-bought. It’s also easier to make than you might think.
Why This Recipe Works
Homemade flavored lemonade is easier to make than you might think. We simply mashed (or muddled) lime slices and strawberries with granulated sugar to extract the oils contained in the lime peel and punch up the lime flavor. We then whisked in some water and freshly squeezed lemon juice—no simple syrup needed. A bit of whisking was all that was needed to dissolve the sugar. Before serving, we strained the mixture and chilled it for an hour. To garnish our drinks, we added more strawberries and lime slices after straining.
