Strawberry Lemonade

This is a simple, refreshing, and tasty lemonade with vibrant color and flavor! Made with fresh strawberries, lemons, and simple syrup, this fun lemonade needs just minutes to whip up.

Simple and tasty! This makes this lemonade the ideal choice to make when you see fresh strawberries everywhere. There is nothing like a glass of lemonade to cool off on a hot day or when you want a perfect drink to serve with a meal, whether it is a family gathering or a party. With its vibrant color and flavor, this will be loved by everyone. 

To make this delicious lemonade, the following ingredients are needed.

Lemons - yes, of course lemons are needed to make the best lemonade

Strawberries - Fresh and juicy strawberries are best to use. Frozen fruit can also be used.

Sugar - Adds to the sweet flavor.

Salt - enhances flavor

Water - to make the lemonade.

Ice - For a cold drink. Add less or more depending on requirements

Simple syrup is used in this recipe. It ensures that all the sugar is dissolved and maintains the uniform sweet flavor just like in this Mango Ginger Lemonade. Making simple syrup is always easier just like ABC’s. Add sugar and water and heat until the sugar dissolves, set aside to cool. During the summer, I often keep some simple syrup in the fridge to make thirst quenching lemonades in minutes. If you do not have the time, no worries. Just blend everything together in a blender for a perfect lemonade. It works!

In 10 minutes, this refreshing lemonade can be served if you have the simple syrup made ahead. So, this is a great plus when you want to make it for a crowd. This can also be made ahead too. Keep refrigerated until use. I would recommend making it a day ahead, so that the freshness of the lemonade and the vibrant color, as well as the flavors are retained. 

I love a good lemonade and this strawberry one boosts with flavors as well as vitamin C. Any seasonal fruit adds a flavor twist to lemonades. Try the mango version of lemonade and the Dragonfruit Lemonade for great flavor and color. Herbs can make a difference in flavor and mint is ideal, this Limonana, Lebanese lemonade can prove it. If you are like me, want a unique flavored lemonade, try this one with sarsaparilla syrup. It is just out of the world and this flavored lemonade is a street lemonade in India. Just YUMMY!
