Fizzy Strawberry Limeade for Kids and Adults

It was hot here this weekend. Flip flops sticking to asphalt hot.

Mufasa and Bean braved NATO Summit public transportation security enhancements and 90 degree temps to go to the Cubs vs. White Sox game.

Meanwhile, Looly, Roo, and I lazed by the kiddie pool relishing our first sips of summer.

Strawberry Limeade

1 pint strawberries, washed and hulled
1 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
1/4-1/2 cup agave nectar depending on desired level of sweetness
Sparkling water or for the adult version, sparkling wine
Lots of ice cubes

Place strawberries, lime juice, and agave nectar in a blender and process until smooth. Pour a few tablespoons into the bottom of each glass. Fill glass 2/3 of the way with your choice of sparkling water or for you thrill-seekers, sparkling wine. Stir gently. Drop in several ice cubes and garnish away with lime wedges and fresh berry slices.
