Strawberry Lemonade

I haven’t photographed much recently, so this morning I wanted to do something where I didn’t need other people to take a photo. And since food photography is something I’ve found interesting I decided to make this super delicious strawberry lemonade out of fresh strawberries and lemons. If you’ve already got very sweet strawberries you might not even need to add any granulated sugar which is actually the worst thing you can eat.

Here’s how to make it:

400 ml water

50 ml granulated sugar

Zest from one lemon

150 g fresh strawberries

100 ml lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

 

Let water, sugar and lemon zest come to a boil in a saucepan. Stir until the sugar has melted. Let it cool.

Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor. Add lemon juice and mix until a smooth texture. Mix the strawberries with the sugar syrup. Pour into glasses with lots of ice to serve.

New York State

Sort of a “better late than never” blog post, but here are finally some photos from me and my mum’s trip to New York in the end of November. It was my first trip to the states and it was love at first sight (or maybe second ’cause it was raining the evening we arrived).  Even though there’s so much to see and do, we can’t say we did it all, but we did a lot. We visited small cafés, all the big museums, saw The Nutcracker at the New York City Ballet, which my mum used to read to me and my older sister when we were little.  We walked The High Line from Chelsea, saw The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and even fed squirrels in Central Park. I could have put down a long list of what we did, but I guess I’ll leave you to the photos like I usually do.

Photos are taken with Nikon D800, Fujifilm x100s and Olympus OM10 (analog).
