If Leah had a "usual" at a coffee shop, it would be a strawberry lime cremosa!
So, I thought it would be good to have some strawberry limeade for her party!
It was pretty easy!
That's a 1 pound bag of frozen strawberries, 1 can of limeade concentrate, and 1 liter or strawberry fizzy water.
and these kitchen tools...
that would be a blender and fine mesh strainer.
First, make the limeade according to the package directions.
Then, pour about half of the limeade into the blender and plop in about half of the strawberries (I let them thaw in the fridge a bit before using).
Then, blend until the strawberries are all broken up.
Now, put the fine mesh strainer over a pitcher and pour some of the blended limeade into the strainer.
You'll need to run a wooden spoon along the bottom of the strainer to move the strawberry bits around so the liquid can get through.
Every so often you'll have to rinse out the strainer so that you can strain more drink :)
Repeat that whole process again so that you've used all your limeade and strawberries.
Then, you'll have all of the strained goodness in a pitcher!
Then, pour in your fizzy water!
Doesn't that look lovely!
You can always customize this to your liking! When you make the limeade, you don't have to add as much water as it calls for if you want it limey-er. You can add more strawberries if you want it strawberry-er!
The next time I make this, I think I'll squeeze in some fresh lime juice...and garnish it with a slice of lime and a strawberry!
Because then it wouldn't be just delicious, it would be cute, too!
You can't go wrong with a cute and fun drink :)
