Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

This Fresh Strawberry Lemonade is a refreshing summertime drink filled with fresh strawberries!

This Fresh Strawberry Lemonade is a super easy, quick, and refreshing summer drink. It only takes 10 MINUTES TO MAKE!

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 too.

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.

It’s perfect for bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, holiday parties or just a simple family BBQ.

And because it only takes about 10 minutes to make, you can always make more once it’s all gone…and it will be gone fast.

If i’m having a party, I also makes sure to double or even triple my recipe.

CHEERS!

ADDITIONAL TIPS 

FRESHLY SQUEEZED 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.

MAKE-AHEAD: You can make this lemonade ahead of time. I like to make it the night before a party, just place the lemonade in the fridge until your ready to serve it. Also, letting it sit overnight, it really gives this lemonade an even more strawberry flavor…sooo good!

STRAWBERRY LIMEADE: 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!

LEMONADE MAKING TOOLS

MASON JAR GLASSES:These are my favorite glasses, I use them for everything.
