Iced Strawberry Lemonade

 Slushy Strawberry Lemonade

10 strawberries
2/3 c sugar
4 whole lemons, with rinds cut off (only the flesh should be left)
3 c ice
1 1/2 c water

Cut the hull (the green part) off of the strawberries.  Place them in a blender with 1/3 c sugar, 1/2 c of ice, and 1/2 c of water.  Pulverize!  You want the ice to turn into Slurpee texture.  Pour this into the bottom of four 8 oz glasses.

Rinse out the blender.  Place the flesh of the lemon, 2 1/2 c ice, and 1 c water in the blender and mix it up.  You've got to have a pretty powerful blender for this to work.  Again, you want the ice to be snow cone-esque.  Pour the lemon slush on top of the strawberry slush.

Sip.  Preferably on a hot summer day, by a pool, with a little paper umbrella sticking out of the side.
Sorry for the bad pictures.  My family was starving, and I can feel the heat of their glare when I'm trying to take the perfect picture instead of serving up a tasty meal.
