Strawberries are handsdown my favorite fruit. That fresh sweet smell grabs my attention everywhere. I love fresh squeezed lemonade. There is nothing more nostalgic that a glass of ice cold lemonade. The only thing better is strawberry lemonade. You can have it all year long. Follow the recipe and you won't be disappointed. If you are having an adult get together fill a glass with ice some of this reconstituted lemonade and a splash of vodka. The ladies will love it. I am also gifting each of the ladies in our Annual Christmas cookie exchange this year a pint to take home and enjoy.
