Strawberry Lemonade | Summer Drinks | Strawberry Recipes

Summer is here and it is time for the Chennaites to resort to chilled drinks, body coolers, watermelons, sunglasses and sunscreen lotions. It is blazing hot outside and the hot wind leaves you burning everywhere and its not even Agni yet. Sunscreen lotions seem to fail and though I dab them by handfuls when leaving home, I return with scorched, tanned and burning skin.

I have skipped the evening tea and its cups of chilled refreshing lemonades stead. It really soothes the body heat and relaxes you. The strawberry season has come to an end and the ones that are in the market now are a bit tart that needs to be sweetened and so I have been making lemonades from them. The recipe that I am sharing now serves two but it can easily be doubled.

The impact is more on Amma. Coming from a place where the mercury never rises more that 32C, she craves for anything chilled. And just before I put everything together to click a few photos she steals her share and gulps it down. Now why I said this is, this lonely glass is my share and that was all that I got to photograph.

~*What U Need*~
Serves - 2
Strawberries - 10 - 12
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp/juice of 1 lemon
Sugar - 2 1/2 tbsp
Water - 2 cups
Ice cubes

How I Made it:
Wash and hull the strawberries. Chop them roughly. Add 1 tbsp sugar and allow to shed water for 30 mins. Blend it in a mixer along with the sugar. Strain the pulp and add the lemon juice. Add the water and ice cubes and serve.

Serve chilled!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
