Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

This Fresh Strawberry Lemonade is a super easy, quick, and refreshing summer drink. As soon as the weather starts to get warm, I’m instantly craving a nice cold glass of this delicious strawberry lemonade.

And the best part, this Fresh Strawberry Lemonade can be quickly turned into a refreshing summer cocktail. I like to add my favorite vodka, tequila, and even lemon flavored rum. Either way, this strawberry lemonade is my go-to summer drink recipe!

JUST A FEW TIPS:

 LEMONADE: To speed up the lemonade making time, rather than waiting for the sugar mixture to cool to room temperature, you can place the sugar mixture in the saucepan after it’s boiled in the fridge for 5 minutes to cool it down quicker.

SWITCH IT UP: If you want to switch it up, you can make Fresh Strawberry Limeade which is also super delicious. All you have to do is substitute the lemons for limes!

SERVE IT: And lastly, serve in a fun mason jar glass and don’t forget to add a cute paper straw!
