To me, lemonade brings up memories of summer days spent running around the yard or relaxing on the porch with my feet kicked up. Admittedly, my favorite lemonade growing up was the powdered Minute Maid kind … we went through a ton of that stuff! These days though, I’m all about a big pitcher of homemade Strawberry Lemonade.

So it’s definitely worth the effort to make it fresh. My go to recipe comes from Entertaining for a Veggie Planet, one of my favorite cookbooks.

If you leave out the strawberries, you will have a regular lemonade, which is delicious all on its own. For a refreshing cocktail, just add vodka.
