Strawberry mint lemonade is a finer version of regular pink lemonade. It is very refreshing and flavorful. What more? I love the appeal of this drink. And the fact that you can also use frozen strawberries makes it even more convenient.
This drink is as refreshing as the photo, yes, really. Ok! Now, I'm praising my own photography. But, no one else seems to appreciate it in the comments so I thought to pamper myself.
Tips to makes Strawberry Mint Lemonade
Can I use Frozen Strawberries?
Yes, I've tried the recipe with both fresh and frozen strawberries. Frozen strawberries gives a slushy like texture. If you skip ice and add cold water, it will give you perfect texture.
Can I add fruit chunks?
Fresh strawberry chunks can be added to this.
Should Strain Strawberry Lemonade?
If you prefer a smoother texture, straining can really help. and it will taste more like pink lemonade.
Should you add lemon soda or not?
Strawberry Mint and Lemon; the combo of flavors is refreshing and balanced on its own. Adding lemon soda give the drink a refreshing boost specially if serving at a party. But you can skip it and add little water. Adjust sweetness if/as needed.
How to make Strawberry Mint Lemonade?
Put strawberry, mint , sugar , ice and water in a blender.
Blend into a smooth liquid, you prefer smooth texture. Strain it! You can prepare this syrup 24 hours ahead of serving. You can also freeze it for later use.
Fill glasses with juice and do a taste test here.
I'm adding very little lemon soda for boasting the flavors but you can skip that altogether if you avoid carbonated drinks. Do not increase lemon soda measures as adding more lemon soda dilutes strawberry mint flavors.
I have added a little extra lemon that'll hit the palate. And yum! I love it. Play around with tweaks in the recipe, if needed and of course do a taste test.
Serve with a mint leaf. You can also garnish by hooking a strawberry and lemon slice on the brim of each glass.
