Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade

We had a very warm and sunny 76-degree day today here in Oregon! To most people that may not be a big deal but to us Oregonians we appreciate and enjoy every single warm & sunny day. My dog and I went on two walks it was so beautiful outside – we were both loving it! My son had his buddy over today for an after-school hangout and my daughter had a rock climbing workout after school which she came home from very hot, thirsty, and tired. I decided to surprise the kids with a pitcher of this strawberry lemonade. It turned out tart/sweet and full of strawberry flavor. All three of the kids raved about the lemonade and not a drop was left in the pitcher by the end of the afternoon… I’d say they liked it.

  1. Since my margaritas taste like lemonade and since I make strawberry margaritas by just blending my margs with berries and ice, I can imagine your lemonade is very good

  2. That sounds absolutely delicious! And I hope the fact that it was warm at your house means that next week we will get some warmer weather, too! I’ll bet the pup is enjoying the walk time.

  3. I’m so into fruity lemonades lately! I bet this would make for an awesome cocktail as well.

  4. can’t think of many things (if any!) that would be more delicious and refreshing than this on a scorching hot day! beautiful!
