This is my brother Eric. He is a drink snob. I’m serious he is very picky about his beverages particularly his lemonade. A couple of years ago I found out about his desire for truly wonderful lemonade and his aversion to the sub-par varieties. Since then I have started noticing how wonderful lemonade can be, and also sadly how horrible it can be.
A few days ago we had our first warm spring day. The sun was shining, the sky was blue and we were working outside in the yard. After a couple of hours my kids were dying for a snack and I was dying for a drink. My little girl asked for pink lemonade. She was thinking of the country time mix, which I no longer buy. I thought about it for a minute and this Strawberry Lemonade was born.
I mix it up in the blender and serve it over ice. For the strawberries I used the powder from the bottom of a can I had just finished. But if you don't have any you can crush some freeze dried strawberries.
¾ c lemon juice (fresh is delicious but bottled is acceptable)
¾ cup Freeze Dried Strawberry Powder (ether from the bottom of the can or FD strawberries that have been crushed)
¾ cup sugar
Blend well. Serve immediately.
