Like other lemonades the strawberry mint lemonade too is sweet and sour. Because the slices of strawberry become pickled by lemon in lemonade. While the sugar and mint provides extra flavor to it. 
The strawberry mint lemonade is very easy to prepare.

Take some organic cane sugar or the maple syrup, which easily dissolves than the sugar crystals. Instead of bottled lemon juice extract the juice of fresh lemons.
Take 4 cups of water and add fresh strawberries with 1 ¼ cups of sugar, 5 cups of fresh mint leaves, and 1 cup of lemon juice.

Leave the mixture for few hours or preferably overnight so that the sugar can drain out the juices from the strawberries through osmosis. 

Then add the remaining lemon juice, and 2 cups of water and put the contents in a pan. Boil the mixture and simmer for 10 minutes. Stain into a blender and blend properly with thin slices of strawberries. Add more sugar to taste and refrigerate the contents. The 4 servings of strawberry mint lemonade are ready.
