There is nothing like a refreshing glass of lemonade on a summer’s night. But, you can take it up a notch by adding more flavor to it. One of my favorite drinks is strawberry lemonade. This is a simple recipe you can make in just a few minutes at home.
I have purchased bottles of strawberry lemonade at the store in the past. But, now I make it at home because it’s easy and honestly, it tasted better than what you will buy. It’s one of our favorite drinks for our Memorial Day and July 4th parties, as well as our other many summertime get-togethers.
What makes this recipe even better is that you can easily swap out the strawberries for any other fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries or even blackberries. This strawberry lemonade recipe is the perfect balance between sweet and sour, and even kids love it!
