strawberry & mint lemonade recipe
Summer calls for many things – sunshine, longer days and barbeques on the beach to name just a few. But one of the main changes we notice when it comes to summer is a huge shift in our diets. The hearty pies and mashed potato meals tend to take a backseat in the warmer months and give way to salads, nibbles and on-the-go dining. If you ask us, there’s nothing like a good picnic…
But where would you be without that refreshing glass of lemonade? It’s pretty crazy, given that it’s such a simple drink to put together, but making something like lemonade from scratch is not all that common. What we love about this strawberry lemonade recipe is that it’s so adaptable – want something sharp and refreshing? Add more lemons. Got a sweet tooth? Throw in a bit more sugar. Want to go completely rogue? Mix things up with a lime!
What we’re saying is that this is one of those recipes you can so easily tweak and tailor to suit you. Check out our version below and give it a whirl!
