Strawberry Lemonade

Nothing refreshes us better than lemonade in this very hot summer... But what if the lemonade is strawberry flavoured? Now, it only refreshes your body with its fantastic sweet flavour but also becomes a feast to your eyes by making them pop out with its bright red colour ....( we do eat with our eyes first, right? )

Strawberry Lemonade

This is SS's favourite drink. He loves strawberry veryyyy much and he always has been a lemonade fan. When you combine both, he will be very happy to reduce ( or even skip!! ) breakfast for this drink :) He actually said that it tastes way better than restaurants!! Now, that's enough to refresh me up..... ( also because he drank the whole lot!!!)
 And lastly don't forget the salt. Salt and lemonade always go hand-in-hand. That little bit of salt somehow balances everything- the sweetness, the tartness and makes it a perfect drink.

Do check out our other Lemonades - Pomegranate Lemon Soda and Mint Lemonade.

NOTES:
1) You can adjust the sweetness to your taste depending on the sweetness of your strawberries.
2) Just like in my Pomegranate Lemon Soda, you can also add plain soda instead of water.
