With the heat starting to really turn up, I think it is time to share one of my most beloved drinks! This sparkling strawberry lemonade is perfect for those hot summer days. It is as easy to make as regular lemonade, but just a little extra. . . and there is nothing wrong with extra!
I really love lemonade and drink it often to keep hydrated. And isn’t just the most perfect drink on a hot summer day? I prefer mine while I’m getting some sun by the pool, but that’s just me.
I don’t sweeten it much so sometimes it is a special treat to dress up the lemonade with some fresh fruit, like strawberries. A friend of mine wasn’t using her Sodastream anymore and gave it to me, so I have been experimenting with recipes to use it. And boy did I create something awesome. I love my Sodastream so much, that I bought a newer one and use it literally every day.

For this drink, I made strawberry lemonade as usual, but used the Sodastream carbonated water instead of normal tap water. You can dress with up with a berry or lemon garnish to be fancy. Then suddenly, I you have the most amazingly fresh lemonade you ever had.
If you are looking to spice it up a little, an “adult” version of this drink would be great with a shot or two of vodka in it or even used as a punch with a ton of fresh fruit in it for a summer gathering. How are you going to make this drink your own?
