Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberries are finally in season. I love this time of year! It has been hot lately and nothing goes better with a hot day then a tall cold glass of lemonade. Add some strawberries to the mix and yum yum yum. When I make this again I will cut back on the amount of sugar. It was too sweet for my liking.

Pepper Added by Joey - None. Although word around the campfire is that strawberries and pepper go well together.

1 teaspoon lemon peel
2 cups sliced strawberries
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 cups cold water
2/3 cup lemon juice
Ice cubes

1. Blend lemon peel and strawberries in a blender.
2. Add sugar and 1 cup cold water. Continue blending.
3. Strain through a sieve into a larger pitcher.
4. Stir in lemon juice, 2 cups cold water and ice cubes.
