Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade Recipe
Rebecca Clyde, MS, RDN, CD

This bubbly summer refresher takes classic lemonade to the next level by adding strawberries and sparkling water. Make the strawberry lemonade mixture up to two days in advance, but wait to add the sparkling water until you're ready to serve.


¾ cup sugar
¾ cup water
16-ounce container fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
¾ cup fresh lemon juice (about 10 large lemons)
3 cups naturally-flavored strawberry sparkling water*


Before you begin: Wash your hands.

  1. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  2. Combine strawberries and half of cooled sugar mixture in a blender. Cover and process until very smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a 2-quart pitcher.
  3. Stir in remaining sugar mixture and lemon juice. Add sparkling water just before serving.

Cooking Note

  • *Club soda or plain sparkling water may be substituted for strawberry-flavored sparkling water.
