"This drink was awesome. It was tangy yet sweet at the same time. I liked it because you could taste the fresh strawberries. I can't wait until the summer to make it for a refreshing beverage."
"This was really good. It wasn't really all that cold though (even though I used cold water and cold soda). So next time I make this, I'll use ice cubes instead of cold water, so it's far more chilled after blending. But this will be a drink we'll have time after time this summer, because it's very refreshing when cold. Thanks, Paula Maguire."
"This is a fantastic recipe. The only thing I didn't do well was to pulse the strawberries until they were smoothe enough. I didn't get it blended properly and they all sunk to the bottom of the pitcher. The taste was fabulous though!! Will make it again and again!"
"Hello yes this recipe was very good i gave it to my oldest son and he just kept on drinking it! Now he makes it every week."
"Great recipe! Awesome taste!!!"
"So refreshing! I did not have club soda, so used a squirt. Did not want to make it all up, so I filled our glasses with ice, then 1/2 squirt and topped off with the strawberry mixture. This is a keeper!"
"I tried it and it was ok. I used both a cup of sugar and lemon juice, so I don't know if that could have thrown in off. I will try it again with the exact amounts, though I don't see how it could have thrown off the taste that much. The taste was pretty good though. I don't think near a cheesecake factory, so it's hard for me to do a side-by-side test. I cannot comment on if it taste just like theirs. I'll have to try it again next time I'm near one, but I usually don't trust reviewers who say something taste just like a certain restaurant. But all-in-all this was pretty good. It was better than what you get at most places, and most places Strawberry Lemonade is terrible"
"Delicious refreshing drink! However, I did not have club soda on hand so I just substituted diet 7-up. Still delicious! I did add ice cubes because it wasn't very cold. We will make this again!"
"Yum yum yum! This is very refreshing and will be made often this summer. I added fresh mint with the strawberries and it added a wonderful flavour. Thanks Paula :-)"
"Oh, wow! Not only it tasted delicious, but it looked so pretty too! I really like that it is not too thick like some other similar recipes. I can't wait for the next strawberry season. I will definitely be making this often. Thank you."
"I really did enjoy this as it was quite simple to make. I like it better without the club soda though. Will definitely make again!"
"Lovely drink. I added just a bit more sugar and frozen berries. I don't care for club soda so used ginger ale. Keeper recipe Made for summer Comfort Cafe"
"Pretty good! I wanted a soda but didn't have any on hand. Did have some club soda handy though...and all the other ingredients in this recipe. Very nice drink!"
"Omg, I think i could drink a gallon of this stuff. This is so good, my family couldn't get enough. I have already made this twice and have club soda and strawberries on my list to make again....lol. I did add a little extra sugar, but otherwise made as written. thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us, its a family favorite in our house!"
"This was great! Ended up tasting just like the Cheesecake Factory's, which I love. I didn't use any club soda so mine was more concentrated and I served it over a full glass of ice. Yum! Sweetened with granulated Splenda- tasted just like the real thing!"
"Very refreshing! I like the slight tang the lemon juice adds to this drink."
"Lovely, refreshing drink. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Many thanks for a great recipe."
"We loved this refreshing delicious drink to go along with our meal out in the back yard! Excellent and one we will use often! Thank you!"
"I thought it was ok. I like my drinks a little fizzier. And I added less water and more club soda. Overall, it was decent, but I think it would have been better with sprite."
