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.
INGREDIENTS TO MAKE STRAWBERRY LEMONADE
● SUGAR: 1 cup granulated sugar.
● WATER: 1 cup water.
● FRESH STRAWBERRIES: 2 cups fresh strawberries.
● ICE CUBES: enough ice to fill the picture, to cool down the strawberry lemonade.
● LEMON: a couple of slices to garnish.
HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY LEMONADE
STEP 1: In a small sauce pan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
STEP 2: Place strawberries into a food processor or blender and process/blend until smooth.
STEP 3: Pour pureed strawberries into the sugar water. Add lemon juice. Stir well.
STEP 4: Pour strawberry lemon mixture and cold water into a large pitcher. Stir well and add ice. Pour into glasses and top with chopped strawberries and a lemon slice.
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
SAUCE PAN:You will need a medium sized sauce pan to boil the sugar and water together.
FOOD PROCESSOR:I love this food processor, it makes chopping things up so much easier.
LARGE PITCHER: Best way to serve lemonade.
MASON JAR GLASSES:These are my favorite glasses, I use them for everything.
