Number of Servings: 8
- 10-12 Whole Strawberries, thinly sliced
- 1 Handful of Mint Leaves
- Lemons or Lemon Juice, to taste
- 7 Cups of Water
To make a 2 quart pitcher of lemonade:
Start by muddling (bashing or mashing) the mint in a metal mixing bowl with 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Put the mashed mixture in the pitcher.
Add the sliced strawberries to the pitcher and sprinkle on 2 teaspoons of sugar to macerate them (draw out their juices and turn them red all the way through). Stir all together, cover, and chill overnight.
Juice lemons and add the juice to 7 cups of still or sparkling water. Pour into pitcher, then adjust lemon and sugar to taste.
Pour 7 cups of organic lemonade into the pitcher. Stir.
