Wow, this week has been going by very fast, it’s Wednesday already and July 4th!! I do have the American in me so I do celebrate this special day. 🙂 I have to apologise because I am late in responding to the wonderful comments that I have been receiving and I would like to thank you all very much!! I have been a bit busy, and yesterday to be honest I had a chance to sit in front of the TV to watch Tennis. 🙂 Rafa was playing so how could I not watch 🙂 🙂 not that I won’t be watching Tennis again today :)..Weeellll in all honesty for the next 2 weeks I will actually be watching a lot of Tennis hahahahhaha…along with everything else that I do daily.
So, since today is a special day what better way to celebrate than with this summer drink that most of us have been drinking for many many years. I didn’t want to make the usual Lemonade, so by adding a few fresh Strawberries which I absolutely adore I made this Lemonade a bit more special and tasty. 🙂 Ohhh by the way, I haven’t just added Strawberries & Lemon juice into this I have also tweaked it (of course) with just a dap of white wine. hahahaha.. A dear friend of mine use to add a bit of Vodka. I never got what she liked about it but as they say “to each his own” 🙂
I like to add wine into my diet once in a while so here is another delicious drink for those summer afternoons or evenings. You can omit the wine if you prefer..:)
5 cups Fresh Strawberries (cut in half)
3 Lemon juice
1 cup Sugar
1/4 Dry White Wine (optional)
5 cups of Water
Cut Strawberries in half
and place into the blender along with 2 cups water and blend on high speed. Once this place a strainer over the pitcher and strain the strawberries.
Add Sugar and mix.
Continue by adding in lemon juice, white wine & blend until fully combined. In a large pitcher add the mix along with 4 cups of water and as much Ice as you like.
Happy 4th of July!! 🙂
