Spiked Strawberry Lemonade

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1 cup cold strawberry flavored rum


In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of the water and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir in the lemon peel and juice. Remove from heat and cool completely. Strain into a clean pitcher.

Meanwhile, in a blender, puree the strawberries. Strain and add to the pitcher with the lemon juices. Stir well to combine. Add the 1 cup remaining water and rum. Stir and refrigerate until chilled.

Serve over ice.
