Chilled Strawberry Lemonade with Fresh Mint

May 7, 2022


2 cups Lyman strawberries (stem removed)

3 Lemons juiced

¼ cup Fresh mint chopped and bruised

3/4 cup Raw sugar

2 tbsp Honey

6 cups cold Water



In a large pitcher, add the strawberries, mint and sugar.  Using the back of a large spoon crush the strawberries into the sugar and mint until the juices bleed out and dissolve the sugar.  Add the lemon juice and honey and mix.  Stir in the cold water and top it off with the ice.

This is a great refresher on a hot day.

For the adults, you can spice it up with a splash of bourbon, gin, or tequila for a fun party drink. 

Meet The Chef

At nine years old, Ben Gaffney asked if he could work alongside his father, a chef, at Congress Rotisserie in New Haven. The elder Gaffney put the boy to work washing dishes for two years, in the hope that it would discourage his interest in the restaurant business.

But a calling is a calling. Ben Gaffney has spent his life since then pursuing the wonders of food, bringing Middlefield along for the ride as chef at Lyman Orchards since 2017.
