"A Strawberry Simple Syrup takes lemonade to a whole new level. It's tart and sweet at the same time and it looks pretty too!"
|"How SWEET it is!"|
Prepared Lemonade (Make your lemonade from frozen concentrate, fresh lemons or powdered mix.)
Strawberry Simple Syrup (Recipe follows)
Lemon slices and whole strawberries, for garnish
Strawberry Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
a few strawberries, cut in half
Combine water, sugar and strawberries in a saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium and allow to cook for about 10 minutes. (This will allow sugar to completely dissolve and syrup to thicken.) Remove from the heat and strain to remove solids. Allow to cool slightly and then refrigerate until ready to serve.
To assemble strawberry lemonade:
Fill glass with desired amount of ice. Pour 1-2 Tablespoons of Strawberry Simple Syrup into glass, depending on how sweet you want your lemonade. Pour in lemonade. Garnish glass with lemon slice and whole strawberry, if desired.
