Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

Strawberries are one of the jewels of the food world.  They come in reds so bright they’re nearly glowing, the bigger they are the more they make you want them, and they’re often considered a romantic way to get your loved one to dash off the bedroom with you.  Personally, I’d take them over jewelry any day!  Unfortunately they don’t last as long as gemstones, but even if they’re too soft to eat fresh, they’re still perfect for strawberry lemonade.
