Expert Tips

Lemonade Recipe: If you don’t have lemonade on hand, here’s a quick way to make a batch! All you’ll need is fresh lemon juice, water, and sugar. 
    1. In a saucepan over medium heat, dissolve 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to make a simple syrup. Once dissolved, set aside to cool. 
    1. Add 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice to a pitcher with 2-3 cups of cold water. For best results, add the simple syrup ¼ cup at a time until desired sweetness is reached. 
    1. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days! Use to make this strawberry gin lemonade freeze!
Blender: If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you can use a food processor for this recipe. The same instructions apply. 
Dairy-Free: If you want to make this drink dairy free, use your favorite non-dairy vanilla ice cream.
