Easy Strawberry Lemonade Recipe for Summer

Strawberry Lemonade is one of my kids’ favorite recipes. Well, really, they love any kind of lemonade. Although it can be very expensive when you order it in a restaurant, it’s actually a fairly affordable drink to make at home. The best part is if you start with a regular lemonade recipe, you can easily substitute raspberries for strawberries, etc., depending on what is on sale.

It’s also a really simple recipe. I recently made it with one of my kids’ kindergarten classes, and it’s one of the recipes every child in class loved!  It may be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch or party, too!

Lemonade is one of those fun drinks that looks so pretty and even more colorful when you make strawberry lemonade (or raspberry lemonade).

Strawberry Lemonade Recipe


  • 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (approx. 1215 lemons)
  • 8 large strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Torani Strawberry Flavored Syrup (can substitute white sugar)
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup white sugar


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil.
  2. Once it reaches a boil, reduce to a simmer until the sugar is melted
  3. Remove from oven and let cool (note, you can skip this step and just add sugar to cold water – but you risk a grainy taste if the sugar is not fully dissolved).
  4. Add the lemon juice and stir (you can strain if you like no pulp in your drink, but I prefer it unstrained).
  5. Add strawberries and Torani Strawberry syrup in a blender, and blend until Chunky
  6. Add strawberries to your drink
  7. Chill until cold
  8. Serve over Ice

What is your favorite spring or summer drink?



  1. I can never find the syrups in my area, but I bet grenadine would work good too! Thanks for sharing- I can’t wait to make some!

    1. Hi Maija – yes it would (and you can use plain sugar too – just something to sweeten the strawberrys a little….I have even used a bit of the Hersheys strawberry syrup that we have on hand for banana splits in the past when I did not have the Torani) :)! Let us know how it works out for you!
