How to make a refreshing glass of Strawberry Lemonade?

Mix the sugar with the strawberries and mash them using a masher, or you can blend this mixture using a food processor.

Run the mixture through a strainer to get a smooth strawberry puree.

In a pitcher, add the ice cubes, mint leaves, lemon slices, strawberry puree, sugar, and water.

Mix the mixture using a wooden spoon, and you can serve the lemonade immediately or place the pitcher in the fridge.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

Of course! To use frozen strawberries, thaw them first, and then follow the steps in the recipe. However, in the case of frozen strawberries, you might need to add more sugar to the lemonade. When using fresh strawberries, you can make out how sweet the strawberries are and adjust the sugar accordingly, but often frozen strawberries lack flavor and are not as sweet as fresh strawberries.

Can I reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe?

I understand that you might think the amount of sugar in this recipe is a bit much, but keep in mind that when you serve the strawberry lemonade in a glass full of ice cubes, the lemonade will get diluted. In case you are serving the strawberry lemonade chilled without ice cubes, then you can reduce the sugar in this recipe as per your liking!
