Happy Memorial Day

It is definitely hard to say Happy in the same sentence with memorial day as we must remember everyone who so gallantly gave their lives for their country. On a lighter note, this weekend was definitely a great time to spend with people who we all truly care about. The weather has been wonderful and I can't blame the skateparks for smelling like charcoal smoke and well done hamburgers. In weather like this and strawberries in season here is my favorite Strawberry Lemonade recipe. Happy memorial day and hope you enjoyed a cold refreshing drink whether it be beer or some lemonade... or both.

Strawberry Lemonade
water 1 cup
sugar 1 cup
Ice 1 cup
fresh lemon juice 1 cup
fresh strawberries, hulled and halved 1 pint
Perrier Sparkling Water 2 cups
Vodka or Tequila (optional)

heat the water and sugar till sugar is dissolved. Add 1 cup of ice to cool liquid down.

In a blender puree strawberries. Add lemon juice, pureed strawberries, and perrier sparkling to sugar and water mixer.

OH. and make sure to not wear a white shirt while drinking this beverage.

-epic fail.
