How to Make Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a medium saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon peel and lemon juice, stir, and remove from the heat. Let cool completely, then strain into a clean pitcher.
  • 2In a blender, puree the pint of strawberries and add to the pitcher with the lemon juice. Stir well to combine and refrigerate until well chilled.
  • 3Add the sparkling water and stir well. Pour over glasses filled with ice and serve, garnished with mint and strawberries.

    Note: straining out the strawberry pulp when ready to serve will give you a clear beverage. To do so is optional.
