Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade

This comes from Angela, a sparkling friend, and one of my sister's best. It's her special "mixed drink" that I could drink by the gallon, especially on hot summer days.

1 can of frozen lemonade juice concentrate (mostly thawed)
1 pint of strawberries, stemmed & halved
1 can of water
1 2-liter of Sprite

In a blender, combine the juice, strawberries & water. Blend until the strawberries are chopped smaller, but not pureed. (You still want 'chunks' of them! Yumm!) Then fill the rest of the blender pitcher with Sprite & stir. You DON'T want to blend carbonated soda in your blender! Add more Sprite to your glass, according to taste (or transfer to a larger pitcher & add more Sprite to the entire batch). Serve in your fanciest goblet with a halved strawberry on the side of the glass.
(I've made this without a blender and just used powdered lemonade mix and water. It just takes a little more work.)
Here is a link to her blog. While we don't see eye to eye on everything, she has a great heart for the Lord, and I appreciate her passion.
