STRAWBERRY OR ANY BERRY LEMONADE
1 can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1 quart fresh strawberries or 1pkg. frozen strawberries*
1 quart Lemon Lime Soda (sprite, 7up, or Shasta)
1. If using fresh strawberries, wash and de-stem then place in a blender with ½ C. water. Blend into a fine puree. If using frozen strawberries, allow to slightly defrost. Then place in a blender and puree as above.
2. Take the strawberry puree and place it in a fine sieve. Using a spatula or the back of a spoon, push the puree through the sieve until all the juice has been removed and only the thick pulp and seeds are left. It will take some time, so be patient. It's totally worth it, I promise! It will look like this when you're at the end...
3. Discard the pulp and seeds. You should have about 1 ½ - 2 cups of strawberry juice that looks like this... Pure strawberry juice with out all those bitter seeds. It's the most delicious strawberry juice or sauce you will ever taste. Pure goodness!
5. Right before serving, combine the pink lemonade, strawberry juice and soda.
