We’re still soaking up summer over here! After a long day of swimming and riding bikes or lounging in the backyard with friends, I love to bring out a fresh pitcher of strawberry lemonade. It’s the perfect sweet drink to serve alongside a casual, savory sandwich lunch or as a simple afternoon refresher. Plus our recipe is easy peasy lemon squeezy!

- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 cups cold water
