Be ready for summer any time of year with this delicious strawberry lemonade concentrate. Easy to can in jars for the pantry or freeze for your own homemade drink concentrate to enjoy all year long.
Strawberries and lemonade, nothing quite screams summer like these two things. Put them together and you have an amazing strawberry lemonade to enjoy, which is actually one of my favorite beverages. It blends the tartness of lemons with the sweetness of fresh strawberries and just tastes like summer to me.
We’ve been needing a lot of refreshments here lately with all of this unseasonable heat we’ve been having. It has routinely been hitting the upper 80s and lower 90s since winter ended abruptly last month. We’ve definitely been drinking tons upon tons of water, but sometimes a nice tall glass of strawberry lemonade or a glass of iced tea is more in line with the craving.
After a long day of weeding the garden, tending to the animals, and making a delicious meal this stuff is fantastic. It’s not too tart, not too sweet and you can add just enough water to make it yours alone. If you like it more diluted so it isn’t so overpowering, go for it. Want something more flavorful? That’s okay too.
This stuff is also great mixed with some club soda or some 7-up to make it a delicious, bubbly treat. It’s sure to be a hit all summer long and well into the dark days of winter just to brighten your day and remind you of warmer days yet to come.
You can enjoy it whenever you like in the summer or, even better, save it for wintertime for a nice memory of the warm summer days.
