Three little girls (and their mama) came over for a little afternoon tea the other day, so I thought I'd whip up some of this pink lemonade I've been liking lately. I make it in the same hodgepodge way as my standard lemonade, except when I'm making the simple syrup, I throw in a handful of smashed strawberries (6 or 7 good-sized ones should do the trick for a liter pitcher/carafe.) Strain out the strawberry-pink sugar syrup when you're adding to the lemon mixture, and there you go!
The resulting lemonade is a really pretty coral color - not at all like the pale pink of the store-bought kinds.
Really nice for a Summer day!
