Jelly and I will be making at least one recipe video a month and today we decided to make my home made lemonade. It is perfect for this time of year and I’ve been doing it for several years now! I wrote the entire recipe down below for reference but I hope you guys enjoy it…

lemonade 1

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of sliced strawberries
  • 6-7 lemons
  • fresh mint leaves
  • fresh basil leaves
  • fresh rosemary leaves
  • 7 cups of water (total)

Step One: Boil 1 1/2 cups of water and add one cup of sugar, stir and set it aside to cool.

Step Two: Squeeze about 5 lemons (goal is around 1 cup of lemon juice). If the lemonade is too tart you can always add more sugar.

Step Three: Mix lemon juice with 1 1/2 cup of sugared water, then add 4 1/2 remaining cups of cold water and mix.

Step Four: Add sliced strawberries, sliced lemon slices (1 lemon should be enough),handful of rosemary, mint, basil, and ice.

Step Five: Stir and serve !!!
