Old Fashioned Strawberry Lemonade

DivasCanCook's picture
I love the pure, simple sweet taste of this strawberry lemonade. No artificial colors, flavors or concentrates, just lemons and strawberries working together naturally. This lemonade can be altered in so many ways! I like to add in vodka and frozen strawberries (instead of ice). This make a stressful hard day so much better!
