  1. 1. Prepare the Strawberries:
    Wash and hull the strawberries, then halve them.

    2. Macerate the Strawberries (Optional):
    In a bowl, combine the halved strawberries with half of the sugar (75g).
    Let them sit for about 15 minutes to release their juices and sweetness. This step is optional but intensifies the strawberry flavor.

    3. Blend the Strawberries:
    If you macerated the strawberries, transfer the strawberries and their juices to a blender.
    Blend until you have a smooth strawberry puree.

    4. Make Lemon Juice:
    Juice the lemons to obtain approximately 250ml of fresh lemon juice.

    5. Combine Strawberry Puree and Lemon Juice:
    In a pitcher, combine the strawberry puree and fresh lemon juice.

    6. Add Sugar and Water:
    Stir in the remaining sugar (75g) and cold water (750ml). Adjust the sugar to your taste preference.

    7. Chill the Strawberry Lemonade:
    Refrigerate the mixture for at least 1 hour to chill and allow the flavors to meld.

    8. Serve:
    Fill glasses with ice cubes.
    Pour the chilled Strawberry Lemonade over the ice.

    9. Garnish (Optional):
    Garnish each glass with a lemon slice and a fresh strawberry on the rim.

    10. Enjoy:
    Sip and savor your delicious Strawberry Lemonade, reveling in the sweet-tart symphony of flavors.

    Please Note

    Perfectly Ripe Strawberries: Select strawberries that are ripe, fragrant, and free from blemishes. The quality of your strawberries will greatly influence the taste of your lemonade.
    Maceration Magic: For an intensified strawberry flavor, macerate the strawberries with a sprinkle of sugar before blending. This involves slicing the strawberries, tossing them with sugar, and letting them sit for about 15 minutes. This process draws out their natural juices and sweetness.
    Lemon Zest Brightness: Add a touch of lemon zest to the lemonade for a burst of bright, citrusy aroma. Use a fine grater to zest the lemon peel, but be careful to avoid the bitter white pith.
    Sweetening Control: Adjust the sweetness of your strawberry lemonade by varying the amount of sugar or honey to suit your taste. Start with less sweetener and add more if needed.
    Chill Before Serving: Allow your strawberry lemonade to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. This not only enhances the flavor but also ensures a refreshing and ice-cold experience.
    Serve with Fresh Fruit: Garnish each glass with a strawberry slice and a lemon wheel for a visually appealing presentation that hints at the flavors within.
    Sparkling Twist: To make it sparkling, top off your strawberry lemonade with soda water or sparkling water for a fizzy and refreshing variation. Adjust the level of fizziness to your liking.
