Summer Strawberry Lemonade
Delicious drinks are one of the best things about summer. And if you know me, you know I like to go big—because how else am I supposed to share? I love making big batches of my favorite summer drinks for get-togethers with family and friends.
Whether it’s a carafe of my Pomegranate Red Wine Sangria, my Favorite White Wine Sangria or a pitcher of this Summer Strawberry Lemonade, there’s just nothing better than a refreshing beverage on a hot, sunny day. Piña colada lemonade is good, too… but that’s a recipe for another day!
Lemonade is the quintessential summer drink.
Lemonade is to summer as hot chocolate is to winter: you just have to have some. It’s one of those seasonal drinks you enjoy because of the weather. My Summer Strawberry Lemonade is pretty, and it’s really refreshing—certainly on a hot summer day.
What are the best garnishes for a strawberry lemonade?
My recipe has mint in it. It adds a bit of freshness, an extra lift, and gives an otherwise simple lemonade a slightly more complex, herbal flavor. Plus, it’s a great excuse to use some of the fresh mint or lemon verbena that’s taking over your garden!
Make it as tart as you’d like, and you can turn this simple recipe into a boozy strawberry lemonade for adults!
Strawberries and lemon make an amazing flavor combo, and the flavor ratio is totally customizable. Like a little more pucker? Just dial up the lemon! I prefer to use organic lemons, by the way—especially if I’m adding extra. Want to make a grown-up version? A splash of prosecco or vodka will do the job just fine.
