Vodka Strawberry Lemonade

This was my alcoholic contribution to the coffee. I originally planned to make some sangria, but after    Luke's wet down, we had a ridiculous amount of vodka leftover, so I gave this a shot. It's very sugary - not sure how it would compare to using lemonade from concentrate, but it's probably pretty similar.

1 3/4 cups sugar
8 cups water
1 pint strawberries
1 1/2 cups lemon juice
3 cups vodka

In a deep skillet, heat the sugar and 1 cup of water, stirring it until the sugar dissolves. This is really sticky. Let it cool to room temperature. Blend the strawberries in a food processor or blender until they're smooth. Combine the strawberries, lemon juice, vodka, and remaining 7 cups of water. When the sugar water mixture is cool, mix it in. It goes down easy - maybe a little too easy : )

Being as there is a good chance there will always be a pregnant person present, I also made some plain lemonade.

1 3/4 cups sugar
8 cups water
1 1/2 cups lemon juice

Again, heat the sugar and one cup of water until the sugar dissolves. Combine it all after the sugar water cools.
