When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Strawberry Rosemary Lemonade

Did you take Christine’s lead and spruce up your outdoor living space over the weekend?  Hopefully you did!  Now you need a refreshing beverage to enjoy while you are soaking up the sun and fresh air in your newly improved space and I’ve got just the ticket – Strawberry Rosemary Lemonade!  There’s nothing like fresh lemonade and I think it tastes even better if you are enjoying it outside.  Do you agree?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are lucky enough to have a lemon tree, go pick some of it’s fruit, or grab some fresh lemons from the store and get squeezing!  Here’s how my kids and I made this tasty concoction.

TIP: We used a Jack LaLanne Power Juicer juicer to squeeze every last drop of juice out of each lemon. 

When my husband got this as a gift a couple of years ago I thought for sure it would be just another kitchen gadget taking up space in the cabinet.  But, I was very wrong (a rarity! HA!) – we use this thing ALL the time and it works great!  So great in fact that we had left over lemon juice.  Yay!  I simply put 1 cup portions in freezer bags and popped them in the freezer to be used the next time we want lemonade. 

Cheers!
