Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

Happy Friday! You have made it through another work week. Congrats! Reward yourself with a little at-home happy hour. Whether you’re looking for something zero-proof or a little stronger, I’ve got a recipe that is perfect for summer, bringing a little fruity flavor to an icy favorite.

 

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of salt water
  • About 10 strawberries
  • 2 cups of ice
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1 lemon, wedged for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • Optional liquor of your choice

What to do:

  • Step 1: In a bowl of 2 cups of salt water, let strawberries sit for 30 minutes.

Don’t know how to cut wedges? Neither did I! I once went to a client event and even with the help of a co-worker and YouTube, we still could not figure out how to wedge lemons! Our client came over baffled. Let me break it down for you.

  • Step 1: Cut off ends (the parts that poke out).
  • Step 2: Turn so newly exposed ends are north and south. Cut down the middle.
  • Step 3: Cut off that stringy, white section with seeds.
  • Step 4: Take new halves and turn so yellow lemon skin is exposed to face you. Slice from right to left.

What are you sipping on this weekend?

Until next time…
