I want to make it clear up front that I don’t think we, this site, or even the Internet are necessarily needs a new lemonade recipe. I covered the lemonade pink picnic (with any bay of your choice), with watermelonwith cucumberwith maple syrup and bourbonand even lime and mint. But the thing I encountered when my children left me, once again, with a basket of overpriced strawberries on their last legs – fruit they had asked me to buy but had mysteriously lost interest in eating when presented to them for breakfast – and decided to turn the strawberries into a strawberry drink, so to speak, because every lemonade recipe I’ve ever posted contains steps that I didn’t want to do.
It’s like making lemon juice, which involves straining out the seeds and pulp. Make a simple syrup, which must be heated in a saucepan and cooled for later use. And any added fresh fruits or vegetables should also be blended and strained, which brings us to three separate processes. Are they hard? No, but they’re not lazy and they are – lazy in a good way. Lazy as a lazy hardly a recipe.
Everything goes through the blender. Everything is blitzed and tense at the same time. And I’ve never tasted a more delicious and nuanced strawberry lemonade in my entire life. It’s crisp and intensely flavorful and it tastes like cotton candy at a carnival, and the strawberry summer cake the cooling in the back of our station wagon floats in the car, and I hope you will immediately go to your kitchen and find out for yourself.

Easy Strawberry Lemonade
- 4 large lemons (mine was 4 1/2 ounces each), plus a few slices for garnish
- 1 pound (455 grams) fresh strawberries, plus a few extra berries for garnish
- 1/3 cup (65 grams) granulated sugar
- 2 to 3 cups of water
Cut the skin, including the outer white skin, off your lemons and cut the lemons into chunks. Don’t worry about the seeds. Hull your strawberries. Combine the lemon chunks, strawberries, sugar, and first two cups of water in your blender and blend until you have a coarse puree. Pour into a colander to remove the seeds. The lemonade will be very strong at this point and you can add as many remaining cups of water as you like, or all of it, depending on your taste. Fill the glasses with ice cubes, pour the lemonade over them and garnish with slices of additional berries and/or lemon. This lemonade is also delicious with a touch of seltzer, if you like it fizzy.
