Homemade Lemonade

Mixed Berry Lemonade - Red, black, blue, and strawberries.
1C. White Sugar (or diet if you like)
1 1/2C. lemon juice (I just get the pre-squeezed stuff)
8-10oz. of frozen fruit (Strawberry, Mixed Berry, Cherries, etc.)
8c. Water

1. Mix 2c. of water with 1c. white sugar in a microwave safe dish and microwave for one minute.  Or if your fancy, melt the sugar and water mixture on the stove top and let cool completely.  

2.  While the sugar mixture (some fancy chefs call it "simple syrup," but I am not simple) cools, put another 2c. of water in a blender along with your frozen fruit and blend until it is a pulp (if your feeling fancy, strain that so the seeds are out, I personally don't care).

3.  Pour the fruit puree into the pitcher you will store your lemonade in.  Combine that with the sugar, remaining 6c. of water, and lemon juice.   

4. STIR THAT LEMONADE!!!  Then you taste it, and if you don't like it, add more of whatever you like, because it's your lemonade not mine.  :)
