Strawberry Lemonade

I am not usually a fan of lemonade...but my sister had some Simply Lemonade with Raspberry one day, so I snagged a sip. It was SO ever since then I've wanted some, but I've been to cheap to buy some. It is actually on sale this week, but of course not at the store I was at. Michelle at All Home Cooking posted a recipe for strawberry lemonade and I got a steal on 5 lemons the other day(87 cents) so I bought more strawberries to make this!

Strawberry Lemonade- All Home Cooking.All Year Long
1 qt(or 1 lb) strawberries, hulled
1 cup lemon juice(I had 5 lemons and it got me 1 1/4 cup of juice)
4 cups water(2 cups warm)
1 cup sugar

Place strawberries and lemon juice in blender and blend until smooth. Mix 2 cups warm water and sugar until dissolved. Add to juice and add in 2 more cups of cold water. Stir and let chill.

**To us this was more strawberry than lemonade...which worked for me! I may add more lemon juice or cut back on the strawberries next time, but it was REALLY good!
