sparkling strawberry lemonade

Lemonade is always welcome at a picnic. You can spike it up with vodka or leave it virgin and add fresh fruit juice. One of our favorite combinations is sparkling strawberry lemonade:

2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon peel
1 cup lemon juice
1 pint fresh strawberries
2 cups cold sparkling water

In a medium saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add lemon peel and juice, stir, and remove from heat. Let cool completely. Pour into pitcher.

In blender, puree strawberries. Add to pitcher with lemon juice and sparkling water. Stir well and refrigerate.
