This recipe makes 3 pints. Double or triple as needed.
3 lemons, sliced
1/2 lime, sliced
8 oz strawberries, chopped
1/3 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups water
Mint sprigs (optional)
Rum (optional...why not?)
Mash sugar and strawberries together, then add the lemon and lime slices and mash to release the juices.
Add the water and, if using, the mint sprigs. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, but not longer as it could become bitter.
Is it just me or does this look like a giant sangria?
After 30 minutes strain out the fruit.
And if you know me you know I don't like waste. I separated the fruit from the rind, etc to freeze and use in a smoothie later on. Compost the rind.
Add ice (and rum if you're so inclined!)
I might have gotten carried away with the garnishes 😉
