Meyer lemons, a cross between a lemon and a Mandarin orange, are the special twist in this refreshing strawberry lemonade.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 41/2 cups water
  • 1 cup Meyer lemon juice, about 10 lemons and zest of 2 lemons in strips
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered


  1. Combine the sugar, 1 cup water and lemon zest in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the sugar has fully dissolved. Remove the lemon zest and transfer the syrup to a container to cool to room temperature.
  2. Puree the strawberries in a blender with 1/2 cup water. Strain the puree and transfer to a pitcher. Add the sugar syrup, lemon juice and remaining water.
  3. Chill the lemonade in the refrigerator and serve over ice
