Recipe: Strawberry Lemonade

Sharing is caring!

This refreshing strawberry lemonade is all grown up! You can easily keep it all ages by leaving out the vodka.

2 oz vodka
2 oz strawberry simple syrup (recipe below)
0.5 oz fresh lemon juice
3-4 oz club soda
Mint sprig

Fill a tall glass with ice. 

Add vodka, strawberry syrup and lemon juice. 

Give the mint a clap between your hands, then add it to the glass. 

Top with club soda. 

Stir and enjoy your strawberry lemonade!

Make it a mocktail – Just leave out the vodka!


Strawberry Simple Syrup: 

1 ½ cups fresh ripe strawberries
½ cup sugar
½ cup water

Clean the strawberries. Remove the tops and slice the berries in half.

Combine berries, water, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.

Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Carefully pour strawberry mixture into the strainer. Using a spatula, gently press the berry mixture into the strainer until all berries are crushed and all liquid has been pressed through to the bowl below. Discard the berry remnants left in the strainer. 

Refrigerate syrup until ready to use.
