Strawberry Lemonade Recipe
A delicious Strawberry Lemonade Recipe perfect for summer, showers, and all sorts of special occasions.
My family absolutely loves refreshing summery drinks when the weather warms up. From our honey lemon balm spritzer to my flavored water, we definitely love simple, fun, cool refreshing drinks and this strawberry lemonade is definitely a favorite!
If you have fresh strawberries and some happy looking lemons you can have a batch of this fresh homemade Strawberry Lemonade made in just a little bit!
Simple, delicious ingredients of strawberries, lemons, and a simple syrup are all it takes to make this crisp, cool twist on classic lemonade.
The simple syrup can be made ahead of time and stored in your refrigerator to make it even easier to whip up a batch at a moment’s notice or when you are planning to make for a party.
There’s just nothing better on a warm afternoon than a cool glass of lemonade and strawberry lemonade definitely takes it up a notch. The sweetness of the strawberries mingled with the tartness of the lemons makes a practically perfect treat in my opinion. Of course you can adjust the level of sweetness to your taste by adding more water or increasing either the strawberries for a richer pink or more lemons for even more tartness. It’s entirely up to you!
The pretty pink color of this strawberry lemonade makes a great drink for Mother’s Day, a baby or bridal shower, a girl’s birthday party or even a fun pool party to celebrate the end of school and summertime!
I hope you enjoy this fun strawberry lemonade recipe as much as we do!
