Time for the Gourmet Seven
and for this month we have chosen beverages. Although we have smoothies and beverages often at home, I hardly make it for the blog because I have a hard time trying to click a satisfying picture. So I seriously had butterflies in my tummy when beverages was the theme.
I was drawn to this lemonade instantly because of its color. This is the first time we had flavored lemonade at home and I have plans to make it more often. It was delicious and is a treat to strawberry lovers. Lemon and strawberry is an excellent combo.
Sometimes I spend a lot of time in taking the picture that is satisfying to me. In this case, it was 40 minutes and 50 shots later that I finally decided to stop
. So for a change I have attached a collage to the post to show the various shots I tried before I finally settled on a few good ones. Off to the recipe. Recipe from epicurious
This is just half of the pictures I clicked.
1 cup chopped strawberries
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar (adjust to taste)
2 cups water
Take strawberries and a tablespoon of lemon juice in a blender.
Pass the puree through a strainer.
Take the strained strawberry juice in a container.
Add the remaining lemon juice.
Refreshing drink ready to beat the heat.
