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‚ėÄūüĎô, 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 ūüćĻ¬†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!

‚ústLEMONADE: 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.



‚úď 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!



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