Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

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

LARGE PITCHER: Best way to serve lemonade. 

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

  1. Way better than any store-bought drinks. I’m definitely going to make this drink again.

  2. I just tried this Fresh Strawberry Lemonade, to bring to a party tomorrow. It’s amazing. Right now it’s late at night and i can’t stop thinking about it sitting in the fridge because i want some. But have to wait ’til tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This looks delicious! I think I’ll try it as a cocktail with some Pinot Grigio wine!

  4. I seen this recipe and had to try it for my lady. I have to say not only it looked good but it tasted real good.

  5. Just found this great recipe on Pinterest and I made the cup yesterday. It taste wonderful, thanks.

  6. Thank you so much for this recipe. I absolutely loved it!

  7. Can the lemon juice be store bought or do I need to squeeze the lemons to make it?

  8. I just made this lemonade, and it is soo good! I’ve enjoyed many a strawberry lemonade from restaurants, but I far prefer the thicker strawberry puree (with a few chunks!) that this recipe gives. Plus, none of the strawberry is wasted. You eat all that goodness that you paid for! Great recipe!

  9. I just want to know what size pitcher would i need? How much would this recipe make? 2 quarts or 3 quarts (Once its done)? Thanks!

  10. Do you think I could make the simple syrup and the strawberry puree in advance? For example, if I was hosting a bbq on the weekend, could I make them the weekend before and store them so I just had to stir everything together before my guests arrive? 

  11. This looks amazing! I have been searching all over for some great lemonade recipes and this one looks outstanding! We will be enjoying it this weekend at our BBQ! Thanks for sharing! 

  12. Made it loved it 

  13. I found this recipe on Pinterest. It looks like the perfect summertime drink!!

  14. Droooling….. yummmicious… this is so refreshinggg

  15. This is amazing! Not to sweet, not to tart. It is Christmas Eve in South Tx and 8- degrees.  Plenty of lemons hanging around the house. Great treat, even in the winter. In the summer, I can see some fresh mint muddled into the mix as well! YUM! Thanks for the great recipe 

  16. What a gorgeous photo! I love the whole set up 🙂

    Summer’s almost over but I think I can get one more of these yummy looking lemonades in me!

  17. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe and the inspiring photo. I created a little box that goes along with it 🙂 Maybe you’d like to hop over my blog and check it out 🙂

  18. Isn’t this lemonade refreshing? I love it’s color. It looks so delightful! This would be good for rejuvenating our bodies because of the summer heat.

  19. This looks so springy and fabulous! I love that you made your own strawberry simple syrup – I bet it tastes amazing on its own, but elevated with lemonade sends it over the top! 

  20. This is SO pretty! And I’m totally craving some right now. I just have to be a little more patient and wait for strawberry season to start in the UK properly! 

  21. As the days get warmer, I’m looking forward to summer cocktails and long runs outside. This lemonade is gorgeous. I have a feeling that I’ll be whipping some of it up soon!

  22. This has me longing for warm summer days!! I can’t wait to try this! 😉
