Strawberry & Mint Lemonade

On a hot summer’s day, like today in California, this would be the best drink to make. The mint and strawberries added a sweet and sour flavor. Enjoy this lovely concoction of wonderfulness.

I used the mint from our garden and I bought fresh strawberries from the grocery store. 🙂

Directions-

1. Cut the strawberries, and make sure to remove the tops. Place the strawberries on the bottom of a pitcher. Add the sugar and the mint. (Make sure the mint is a bit crushed.)

Tip- For adults, if you would like this to get even tastier, you can add in a few tsp of white rum. Super yummy.

  1. I don’t have a lot of experience cooking with lavender flowers, but I love lavender and will look into it. Lavender sea salt sounds lovely! I’ll keep an eye on your site to order some. I am making your Strawberry and Mint Lemonade right now! 🙂

    1. Hi Mitts and measures, You are awesome! Please send a pic and I will post it to my food blog. 🙂 Thank you for trying it out. Let me know what you think. Yes Lavender, has a great taste. You should try out lavender creme brulee, and go from there. Basically you would infuse lavender flowers into milk, and boil that for about 3 minutes, and you can use that flavoring in any recipe. 🙂 You can even make a lavender sugar. I will post some recipes for you, and yes I will let you know when our lavender sea salt is ready. I am soo happy to see you liking my recipes and trying them out. – You should enter the featured thursday recipe, you basically submit your recipe to me before every thursday, and I post one recipe a week. The end of the month, viewers vote on best recipe, and the person who wins, wins a prize. 🙂
