Love this icy summer cocktail recipe. Basically strawberry lemonade all boozed up, and then frozen into slushie form. Best served poolside!
Yield: 6-8 servings
1cupwater + 2 cups water
3cupsfresh strawberrieshulls removed
3/4cupfresh-squeezed lemon juicefrom 6-8 large lemons
Additional strawberries and lemon slices for garnishif desired
Add sugar and 1 cup water to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add remaining 2 cups water. Add to the pitcher of a blender along with strawberries, lemon juice, vodka, and Cointreau. Puree until completely smooth.
Pour into a large freezer-safe container and seal with lid or plastic wrap. Carefully transfer to freezer. Freeze until solid, 4-6 hours.
Remove from freezer. Scrape with a fork to loosen ice; stir with a spoon to mix ice and the rest of the ingredients back together if necessary. Spoon into glasses, decorate the glass with a strawberry and a lemon slice if desired, and serve with a decorative straw and a spoon.
