Strawberry Lemonade

Before squeezing juice from the lemons, roll them on the countertop, applying gentle pressure with the heel of your palm. This will really get the lemons' juices flowing and make it easier to squeeze them.

    With the best strawberries you can find, this is absolutely delicious. Heck, it's good even with frozen strawberries, might need a bit more sugar, that's all.
