Strawberry Mojito Lemonade2

A few days ago, we visited a local Strawberry Farm. There, we were able to sample honey, collect strawberries and even take a few of them home. After the kids got their fill of strawberries, I somehow had a ton left over. I decided to make a Strawberry Mojito Lemonade.

This drink is very easy to make and is the perfect refreshing drink. If you have fresh lemons and can make homemade lemonade it is best, but you can also buy already made lemonade or if you are in a rush, the Kool-Aid Version. What makes this drink so great is the way the mint and strawberry intertwine with each other. It is simply delish and perfect for a warm summer day.

You will only need a few simple ingredients to make my Strawberry Mojito Lemonade:

  • 20 fresh strawberries
  • Freshly picked mint
  • Lemonade

Directions: 

  • Wash/hull & quarter the strawberries.
  • Put the strawberries into a blender.
  • Puree the strawberries.
  • Pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove any larger  bits & pieces of strawberry left.

Lemonade: 

  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C water
  • Zest from 2 lemons
  • Juice from the 6 lemons
  • 1 gallon of cold water
  • ice

Directions: 

  • Bring the cup of water to a boil adding the sugar and zest stirring constantly until sugar has dissolved.
  • Pour water into a pitcher.
  • Add lemon juice, stir well.
  • Mix in the simple syrup with the lemon zest, Stirring until the simple syrup has been thoroughly mixed.
