Strawberry Lemonade

If you could bottle up summer and serve it over ice, it would taste just like our Strawberry Lemonade. Made with Loveless Cafe Strawberry Preserves and fresh squeezed lemon juice, this refreshing beverage is best enjoyed in a rocking chair on a front porch on a sunny afternoon.

This recipe is featured in our Loveless Cafe Cookbook!
