Eats: Strawberry Lemonade

I mentioned that I made loads of food on Sunday, but I also made homemade strawberry lemonade! Because it is hot, and it is summer, and why the hell not. We also had an overabundance of lemons, because of another recipe that I will be sharing shortly.

Get
1 cup sugar + 1 cup water, for the simple syrup
4-6 lemons, juiced
3/4 + cups white sugar to taste
8 ripe strawberries, sliced
8 cups of water

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Let cool. You can actually make simple syrup ahead of time, and store it in a jar. It should keep up to two weeks in the fridge. In a large pitcher, add the lemon juice, strawberry slices, sugar, and water. I added ice too, because it was super hot the day that I made this. Stir everything together, and let it sit in the fridge 15-20 minutes.

This is probably the easiest thing that I have ever posted, and not really worthy of a blog post, but lets be honest, strawberry lemonade is amazing! As is that pitcher from Target for a $1.
