Recipe: Strawberry Lemonade
Meanwhile, I whipped this drink up with what I salvaged from the bruised batch. It made enough for two pint glasses for me and the hubby, but I will play with the recipe to see what will get to a whole pitcher.
1/4 cup strawberries (8 whole strawberries)
1 whole lemon
2 heaping tablespoons of agave nectar
water/seltzer/sparkling wine to taste
Puree the strawberries and pour into a pitcher. Add the fresh squeezed lemon juice, agave nectar, and water. Serve.
Makes 2 pint glasses.
I'll be better prepared next time I make this and maybe add some mint and possibly some champagne, prosecco, etc. as an alternative to mimosas for brunch. Also, I think I will have a cheesecloth handy to strain the strawberry seeds because they all collected at the bottom of the glass and came rushing to nail me in the face as I took my last sip. Was very tasty though. :)
