Strawberry Basil Lemonade
from Living with Amy
1 cup strawberries, destemmed and hulled
1 cup (8 ounces) fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 4 large lemons)
1/2 cup simple syrup (see below)
3 cups cold water
1 lemon, washed and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 cup strawberries, sliced (for garnish)
1 cup loosely packed basil leaves
Purée the strawberries with about 1/4 cup of the lemon juice in a blender on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Strain the purée through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher.
Add the rest of your lemon juice, the simple syrup, water, lemon slices and basil leaves. Stir to incorporate. Chill for at least one hour before serving.
* to make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool before using.
