Now you can add raspberries, or any other berries too instead of strawberries, some people also get the pink color by adding soem grenadine to the lemonade and that too turns pinkish, but i like to add strawberries.
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice ( about 6 to 7 lemons)
1/2 cup fresh strawberries sliced
1 cup sugar
2 cup water
1 cup ice cubes
3 to 4 sprigs of mint leaves or lemon rinds, make a good garnish.
