What’s more refreshing than a a lemonade during the summer season. There is nothing I hate more than when I go to a restaurant and order a lemonade and they give me those fountain drinks labeled as lemonade but they are far from even called a lemonade.Making lemonades is easy so don’t bother by buying those powdered drinks.In the Middle East hot lemonades made with honey are used as sore throat and cold remedy.I made strawberry lemonade, because strawberries are in season now and I like any fruit flavored lemonade anyways.
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
10 small/medium strawberries
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp orange blossom water (optional)
Over high heat , add sugar,water and lemon zest in a saucepan and heat until it boils.
Turn heat off and let it cool.
Strain the sugar syrup and add it with the strawberries in a blender, and blend until smooth.
Strain again ( you can skip this step if you like to have tiny strawberry bits in your lemonade). Add orange blossom water.
Add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water depending on how much sweet you like.
Chill and serve.
