{Strawberry Lemonade with Mint}

Although the fist day of Fall has just passed, I have been craving lemonade with strawberries and mint.  This is a very simple recipe that is great for a party or a quick treat.

For this recipe, you will need the following:

A large pitcher
Something to muddle the ingredients with (I am using my potato masher)
Strawberries
Mint
Lemon juice
Sugar
Cold water


Start with one cup of chopped strawberries and about1/3 cup of torn mint leaves.



Next, add just shy of a cup of sugar,



and one cup of lemon juice.



Now, muddle the ingredients together.



You want the liquid to be blush pink from the strawberries and the mint nicely bruised to release the flavor.



The colors are amazing together!



Finally, add six cups of cold water and stir well to ensure all of the sugar is dissolved.



Serve over ice and enjoy!
