I noticed recently that I don’t have any recipes for drinks on this blog so what better way to start a new category then with homemade sparkling strawberry lemonade. To be honest, I had never attempted homemade lemonade before. Growing up, I was always a fan of the powdered stuff, but have since found it way too sweet for me. Making it at home allows you to adjust it to your tastes. For this recipe, I used fresh strawberries, lemons, a quick simple syrup and some sparkling water. A little sweet, a little tart and very refreshing.
You may notice seeds in my picture, and that is because I chose not to strain the strawberries after I pureed them. I like the little pieces of fresh fruit. If it’s not for you feel free to strain yours. But don’t do like a friend of mine did and strain it over the sink, make sure you have a bowl under it to catch the juice. ;-)
