Multiples in the Kitchen: Easy Strawberry Lemonade

multiples_kitchen-1

Lately whenever we eat out, I always order a strawberry lemonade…I guess it’s this summer’s obsession for me. But then, I wonder why the bill comes out to five bucks more than I expected! So I thought I’d better satisfy my strawberry lemonade cravings in a more economical manner and make it at home. I found this super easy recipe by My Baking Addiction and the girls and I gave it a go.

Strawberry Lemonade on Multiples in the Kitchen

You will basically need strawberries, lemons, simple syrup (see recipe) and some equipment. strawberrylemonade1

The girls used plastic knives to cut off the tops of the strawberries, then cut them in half.

Add some water and give them a whirl in your food processor or blender until pureed.

Then pour the puree into a bowl through a strainer (some seeds will remain unless you use a super fine sieve).

Time to juice the lemons. I love this retro lemon juicer I found at the thrift store.

Pour the lemon juice, strawberry puree and simple syrup into a pitcher. Give it a try, and add water to your taste. You could also add more lemon if you want it more tart at this point.

Serve over ice and you’re done. You could also make these into ice cubes and add to a glass of water, or make them into popsicles.

Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

This was a fun recipe to make with the girls. A little knife skill practice, and lots of pouring and squishing, with a refreshing reward!

Strawberry Lemonade

(Recipe from My Baking Addiction)

1 cup sugar
1 cup of water
1 pint fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh lemon juice (this equaled close to 8 of my lemons)
4-6 cups cold water (this will vary depending on your taste)

Make a simple syrup by combining the sugar with 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Place over medium heat and heat until the sugar in completely dissolved; swirl the pan occasionally. Let cool. Once the simple syrup has cooled, puree strawberries in a blender with ½ cup water. In a large pitcher, combine strawberry puree, simple syrup and lemon juice. Add 4-6 cups of cold water. The amount of water you use will depend on your taste, so add as little or as much as you want to achieve your perfect sweet/tart balance. Serve over ice. If desired, garnish with fresh strawberries and lemon slices.
