Growing up, my family would always have a pitcher of lemonade in the fridge during the summer. It was a staple drink that we would enjoy during barbecues and family gatherings. One summer, my mom decided to add some fresh strawberries to the mix, and it was a total game-changer. The sweetness of the strawberries paired perfectly with the tartness of the lemons, and it quickly became our go-to summer drink.
