Pink Strawberry Lemonade

Pink Lemonade adds a nice twist to freshly squeezed lemon juice. We all remember lemonade from our childhood.It is like a cool summer breeze. This recipe is  very simple and the pink color that it gets is by adding in fresh strawberries. The strawberries also give this drink its hint of  tart flavour. 
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.

Chilled Pink Lemonade

1.Heat 2 cups of  water in a sauce pan, add 1 cup sugar and allow to boil, for a few 4 to 5 minutes, creating a simple sugar syrup. Close burner and keep aside.
2. Add 1 tsp sugar to the cut strawberries and add them to the blender, add 1/2 cup lime juice and blend for 2 to 3 minutes. Strain the strawberry lemon juice.
3. Using a big pitcher, add ice cubes, lemon juice , strained strawberry lemon pulp, stir together .
3. Add sugar syrup . At this time if the drink is too thick, you can add 1/2 cup more water. Lemonade, as we all know from our childhood, is very refreshing and the pink color that this drink gets , from strawberries makes it even more attractive. Pink strawberry lemonade is ready , refrigerate for about 15 to 20 minutes and enjoy this drink cold. Garnish with mint leaves or lemon rinds. Perfect  drink for a barbecue or just by itself , anytime . Enjoy:)
