Ingredients

For the simple honey syrup:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup raw honey

For the lemonade:

  • 5 cups water
  • 2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice approx. 16-20 medium lemons
  • 15-20 frozen strawberries will yield approx. 2/3 - 1 cup when defrosted and mushed
  • 8 large fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  1. In a medium sauce pan, combine 2 cups of the water and the raw honey. Heat over medium-high heat until honey completely dissolves. Remove from heat and set this simple honey syrup aside to cool.

  2. Let the frozen strawberries thaw. Once thawed, muddle (mush) the strawberries until they are all mushed and you have made a thick strawberry paste. If you like larger chunks of fruit, don't mush the strawberries as much.

  3. In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, the strawberries, and the remaining 5 cups water. Stir to combine. Add about half of the simple syrup into the mixture and stir to combine. Continue to add the syrup, 1/4 cup at a time, until the lemonade reaches your desired level of sweetness.

  4. Add the fresh mint leaves and stir again. If possible, place the lemonade mixture in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. If you can wait this time, you will be rewarded. If not, it will still be super tasty -- just not as minty.
  5. Serve cold.
  6. If you somehow don't finish the lemonade and want to store it for the next day, I recommend removing the mint leaves as they will wilt after a while.
