How to Make Strawberry Pineapple Lemonade
It doesn't get easier than this recipe! All you have to do to make this delicious homemade lemonade is to combine the fruit in a pitcher, mash them together with a sweetener of your choice, and then stir in fresh lemon juice and water.
The best tool to use is a muddler. A muddler is a wooden bartender’s tool used to mash or muddle fruits and herbs together in the bottom of a glass. This releases the flavors.
If you've ever ordered a mojito, you've probably seen one being used to muddle the mint leaves. If you don’t have a muddler, you can use the handle of a wooden spoon or anything with a flat surface.
Don’t limit yourself to strawberries and pineapple for this recipe. There are an endless number of flavor combinations you can try out to create your own perfect lemonade!
Need some ideas? Here are just a few suggestions:
- Strawberry, watermelon and mint
- Blackberry habanero
- Cucumber basil
- Peach mango
