Few things are refreshing as ice-cold lemonade on a sultry summer day. And whether you’re stirring in Country Time under the tap or buying a gallon of Minute Maid from your grocer, we all can agree that nothing comes close to fresh-squeezed. And at Muzzarelli Farms, we’re always fresh and never from concentrate.
Here’s the squeeze.
What You’ll Need:
• 1 quart of Muzzarelli strawberries
• 4 lemons
• 3-4 cups of cold water
• ¼ cup of local honey
• ¾ cup of sugar
• Fresh mint leaves
• Ice (optional)
What You’ll Need to Do:
In a tall glass or pitcher, juice 4 lemons, careful to avoid any seeds, and set aside. Purée 1 quart of fresh-picked Muzzarelli strawberries in a blender until liquefied, and introduce lemon juice to the purée. Add in ¼ cup of honey, ¾ cup of sugar, 3-4 cups of cold water, and thoroughly blend until all ingredients are mixed.
Serve over ice with a sprig of fresh mint, and you’re well on your way to a fresh-squeezed summertime cool-down.
