With summer making an appearance very sporodically in London, I have not got into the swing of buying any summer produce. Apart from a barbecue for breakfast at the allotment a few weeks ago (egg, bacon and toast), we have only eaten outside once. So Brette‘s idea to make strawberry lemonade had me very quite excited. I loved the idea of finally hitting the summer berries and having a refreshing drink to make when it finally (I am praying) gets warmer.
This was easy to make, although I swapped the lime for half an orange and didn’t use as much sugar as it stated.
It wasn’t as fruity and strong as I had thought it would be and I wasn’t that keen on it when I drank it on its own or added water to it. The answer? Vodka. This makes a nice cocktail – vodka, a dash of lemonade and then the strawberry lemonade.
I was at home on Tuesday instead of going to singing group as England were playing in the football and so at half time we had pavalovas – the strawberry lemonade works very well mixed with the strawberries.
So a win with the cocktail and pavlova and a win with England winning!
Fancy joining Martha Mondays? We are a smallish group (at the moment) who make recipes from any of the Martha Stewart magazines, websites, blogs etc. Contact Brette for more information.
