A Sign of Spring: Strawberry Limeade

March 05, 2009

Coming up with this recipe may seem simple to you because that’s what I thought when I submitted this recipe concept to a client for recipe development. Honestly, I made this recipe at least six times. I kept placing the strawberries in the blender and coming out with a fizzy product. It tasted great, but was very foamy and fizzy. The kids loved trying all the versions, but they even complained about all of the fizz. I realized that maybe I was making this too complicated trying create a lime simple syrup, different sugars, etc. until I realized why not just try chopping the strawberries in the food processor first and then stir them into simple limeade? This version worked great so I hope you will like it too.


Prep: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 cups
1 (16-oz.) container strawberries, stems removed
1 (12-oz) can frozen limeade concentrate, undiluted
5 cup cold water
1 Fresh strawberries, fresh mint (optional)
1. Combine strawberries in a container of a food processor; light pulse until smooth. Pour in a strainer to strain pulp. Combine limemade and water in a large pitcher and stir until limeade dissolves. Stir in strawberries; pour over ice and garnish with fresh strawberries and mint, if desired.

This totally reminded me of the cherry limeade from Winstead's, my favorite burger place back home. They pump a couple of squirts of the cherry syrup they use to make cherry Coca-Cola's into the bottom of a tall glass, add limeade and crushed ice and then top it off with a small scoop of lime sherbet. Delish.
