You know what else tastes amazing? This lemonade.
Yep, I’ve finally jumped on the bandwagon and gotten on board with the whole “put strawberries in your lemonade thang’,”
My consensus? I’ve been missing out all these years.
I’m kind of a classic lemonade kinda girl. Don’t you dare mess with my lemonade and put anything else in it!
I’ve been converted. By strawberries.
Figures, since strawberries are my main love this time of year.
This lemonade could seriously not be more perfect. It’s perfectly sweet and tangy, has spot-on lemon flavors. And guys, it’s pink.
You could never hate on a pink drink.
Pink drink. I love the sound of that.
This lemonade was so easy to make, that afterward while I sat sipping a glassful, I kept thinking: Wow, is that really all? I just made perfect homemade lemonade in less than 10 minutes with only 3 ingredients.
Proud kitchen moment there, folks. 😀

You need to try this strawberry lemonade this summer. I don’t know what the temps are in your neck of the woods, but it is SO. HOT here! It was like 85 degrees and full-on humidity the other day. Ick. I know it’s not as bad as some of my blogging friends are experiencing, but it’s still HOT.

For anyone who is experiencing the same kind of weather, I think you’ll understand what I’m talking about. 😉
