Summer of Colour Week 4....Strawberry Lemonade



Hi Everyone....

I am having so much fun with the Summer of Colour Challenge.....this week I really enjoyed the colours used....I love pinks and I love lemony yellows.....so I hope you pull up a chair and pop in for a nice tall vintage glass of my yummy Strawberry Raspberry Lemonade.....

 Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 3/4 cup fresh or thawed frozen raspberries
  • 9 cups water
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 8-10 lemons)
  • 2 cups super fine sugar
Directions
Puree the strawberries and raspberries in a blender and strain through a fine sieve into a large pitcher. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk together until the sugar dissolves. Serve over ice.

I am having so much fun illustrating this summer and I am thrilled to be a part of the Summer of Colour...


We are celebrating a long weekend here in Canada .....it is Canada Day and we celebrate Canada's 145th Birthday.....I am so happy to live in this amazing country...we are truly blessed!!!

Happy Monday and Happy Creating....

Je suppose que tu vas fêter la fête du Canada ma chère Diana...

Je suis heureuse de découvrir ta dernière publication... Ces jours-ci je cours... En cette période de l'année je suis très occupée entre les invitations diverses et les préparations pour les expositions. Si parfois je manque des publications je te pris de m'en excuser. Je les regarde cependant avec du retard !
Cette illustration de la limonade aux fraises est très rafraîchissante et de saison ! J'adore les verres avec les petites abeilles. Je me souviens que ma grand-mère avait des verres presque similaires.
Les bâtonnets de glace sont merveilleux !

je te fais de gros gros bisous.
