Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Strawberry Bookworm

This recipe comes from the fabulous Moosewood New Classics cookbook and is a perfect summer treat. The recipe says that the strawberry puree can be kept for up to four days in the refrigerator.I don't actually know--it's never lasted that long.

This was so simple to make and has such a great flavor! Made as written and had a glass right away and put the rest in the fridge; finished it off at dinner. Going into my Best of Cookbook!! Made for 2012 Spring PAC.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 3 large lemons usually makes at least a cup of juice. Zap the lemons for 1 minute in the microwave to make them as juicy as possible before squeezing.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine sugar and water. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved and the liquid is clear.
  3. Pour the sugar syrup into a blender with the strawberries and lemon juice and puree.
  4. If serving immediately combine the puree and sparkling water in a pitcher and serve in tall glasses over ice. Or refrigerate the puree and prepare individual servings by mixing equal parts puree and sparkling water.
