Here is a really refreshing way to welcome road weary guests to your home. When guests arrive after a long drive serve them a summer treat to help them beat the heat. The combination of lemon and strawberry is delicious and refreshing.
Here’s one of my favorite ways to use strawberries and lemon:
COCKTAIL: Limoncello Spritzers
Fill 6 tumblers halfway with ice. Stir 1/2 cup of limoncello and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (fresh) into each glass. Top with 1/4 cup of club soda and serve. Add a garnish of lemon to squeeze and a fresh sprig of mint
San Pelligrino Lemonato is a great non-alcholic choice and Lemonade for the little ones assures that everyone has something cold to sip on. Mix up a pitcher with ice and throw in some strawberries for color and taste.
SNACK: Lady Fingers with Strawberries and Cream
Serve washed whole strawberries with just the tops cut off in a bowl. Set the bowl on the center of a platter and surround with lady fingers (place on the platter like the petals on a flower) . Next to the platter offer whipped creme (or try 1 cup mascarpone cheese & 1/3 cup chilled heavy cream whipped for 2 minutes).
