How to make sparkling strawberry lemonade

To prepare a refreshing strawberry lemonade, start by placing fresh lemon juice and sugar into a bowl. Stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves completely, creating a sweet lemon syrup.

Next, place fresh strawberries in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Puree the strawberries until they are smooth. To achieve a perfectly smooth texture, run the strawberry puree through a fine mesh strainer, discarding any seeds and pulp.

To assemble the lemonade, combine the lemon juice mixture with the strained strawberry puree in a large pitcher. If desired, add a splash of Limoncino or Limoncello for an extra kick. Pour in cold sparkling water and stir the mixture well to ensure everything combines thoroughly.

Fill serving glasses with ice and pour the strawberry lemonade over the ice. For an appealing presentation, garnish each glass with slices of lemon and fresh strawberries. Enjoy your homemade strawberry lemonade immediately, savoring the perfect blend of tart lemon and sweet strawberry flavors.
