This was the only one of the recipes I had chosen for the menu that I allowed someone else to make. I had just a little too much stress/not enough time to be able to make that one on my own as I was slicing bread for the crostinis, toasting it, and assembling all of the other foods. My sister's roommate from college, Megan, made this lemonade for me, and she did a fantastic job. I only got a small glass, it went so quickly, but it was heavenly. Cool, refreshing, slightly sweet, slightly sour..perfect for the summer.
Iced Strawberry Lemonade
from Family Kitchen
10 strawberries (or 5-6 very large ones)
2/3 cup sugar
4 whole lemons, rinds off
3 cups ice
1 1/2 cups water
In a blender, combine the strawberries, half of the sugar, 1/2 cup ice and 1/2 cup water. Blend until smooth (will be thick). Pour into the bottom of four glasses or a glass pitcher. Rinse out your blender and then add the lemons and the remaining sugar, water and ice. Begin on a slow blending speed, and then raise it to high speed. Blend until smooth. Pour over the strawberry mixture and serve.
