Strawberry Mint Lemonade

Strawberry Mint Lemonade
Christopher Mohs

Summertime is perfect for lemonades, and this fresh alternative is one that I turn to frequently to bottle up lots of easy to grab drinks for during the week. When strawberries come into abundance, this is a great way to use them and it’s probably one of the easiest lemonade’s to make since there isn’t all the typical squeezing of the lemon juice, just a nice infusion of flavor.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Strawberry Mint Lemonade

6 Lemons (sliced)
1 Lime (sliced)
1 16 oz Package if Strawberries (hulled and halved)
3/4 cup Sugar
1 sprig of Mint (or 1/2 tsp Mint Extract)
7 cups of Water

In a large bowl, mash sugar and strawberries together with a potato mashing tool. Add in sliced lemons and lime. Lightly mash the lemons and lime down to release the juices. Add the water and stir in the mint and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to steep. Remove and strain through a wire mesh strainer into a pitcher for serving.

Note: don’t let the mixture steep longer than 30 minutes or so to avoid a bitter taste from the pith of the citrus.
