Strawberry Summer Lemonade


I love Strawberry Lemonade. There is something about cold lemonade, BBQ 's and a hot summers day. I wanted to try a new recipe for Tyler Florence's lemonade for my neighborhood's BBQ this past weekend. I made this kid friendly by omitting vodka and adding lots of crushed strawberries into the punch. This was so sweet and refreshing at the same time. I added some limes and 2 extra lemons for a little more sour flavour. I wanted to try out my lemonade pitcher that has been in the box since I bought it last summer. I can't believe how much this held. It was a fun party and a wonderful drink. Next time I will be trying the grown-up version. You can check out what my other Tyler Florence friends did here.

I agree about lemonade on a hot day...there's nothing like it : ) Love that you added strawberries. I had something like this at the derby party I went to. It was so good!!

MMMMM! That is so calling my name...I just can't bear to look at it. You got me hooked on homemade lemonade that summer in Germany. What a beautiful way to serve it Susy.

I literally was just looking for a strawberry lemonade recipe! But I'll be leaving in the alcohol - and making a kid friendly version too!
