Baked Strawberry Mint Lemonade

YIELD:  ABOUT 6 CUPS (20 mg of CBD per cup)

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Total time: 35 minutes

 

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound fresh strawberries (tops removed and sliced)

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 4 1/2 cups cold water

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 

  • 6 sprigs fresh mint

  • 120 mg of CBD tincture (feel free to increase or decrease the dosage as desired)

  • For garnish

    • Lemon slices

    • Whole strawberries

    • Fresh mint sprigs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a shallow baking dish, toss the strawberries with 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar. Arrange them in an even layer and bake for 25 minutes until the berries are soft, slightly darkened, and juicy. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  3. While the strawberries are roasting, make your simple syrup. Place 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring regularly until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Transfer your cooled strawberries to a blender or food processor (make sure you get all the roasted strawberry juice in there) and purée until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher.
  5. Add the CBD tincture, lemon juice, mint sprigs, and remaining 3 3/4 cups cold filtered water to the strawberry puree and mix well. Stir in the simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time until you reach your desired level of sweetness. (If your strawberries are very ripe, you may only need about half of the syrup.)
  6. Refrigerate the lemonade for about 30 minutes to allow the mint to infuse.
  7. To serve, pour lemonade into ice-filled glasses. Garnish with lemon slices, strawberries, and fresh mint.
