"They don't sell Strawberry Nectar in my town, so I make my own. The apple juice is for sweetness. Be careful: not all brands have a good aftertaste even frozen. Fresh juiced apple is better. Thawed frozen strawberries may be used when fresh is not available. Be sure to use unsweetened ones."

This was a great way to use my fresh-picked strawberries! The nectar keeps well in a pitcher in the fridge. Whenever I feel like having a tasty drink, I pour some nectar over ice and top the glass off with gingerale---yum!

This is a good way to use up strawberries. I had to add Splenda to this, however, as it really wasn't sweet at all. I also ended up pouring mine back into the blender and blending it with some crushed ice to chill it. I suppose if you started with chilled ingredients, the finished product might be cold. Keep this in mind, as this type of beverage tastes better cold (at least in my opinion.)

I made this with apple cider. I like the suggestion of also adding ginger ale!
