Easy Lip Smacking Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade

5 from 10 reviews

Refreshing Strawberry Lemonade is perfect for all your summer entertaining needs.  With just a handful of ingredients this is the best summer beverage.


  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 lb fresh strawberries hulled and sliced (reserve 4 small strawberries for garnish)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Ice


  1. Heat the water and sugar over medium heat to a simmer.  Stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves. Let it fully cool before using.
  2. Add the strawberries, lemon juice, and three cups cooled water/sugar mixture to a blender and puree.  Pour mixture into a large pitcher. Stir in rest of the water/sugar mixture.  For best results chill for 2-3 hours.  Pour over ice and garnish with strawberries.


  • Make the water sugar mixture (aka simple syrup) in advance and chill well.
  • I prefer to use fresh strawberries for this.  Frozen strawberries can be used but they must be thawed completely.
  • To garnish with strawberries simply slice the strawberry about halfway up the middle starting at the bottom and slide on the rim of the glass.
  • Add ice only to the glasses and not the pitcher. You don’t want the delicious Strawberry Lemonade getting watered down.
