Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade Refresher

  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 1 Drinks 1x


This Strawberry Lemonade Refresher is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer afternoon. Made with whole ingredients, this recipe makes a single serving so you can enjoy it alone or scale up!


  • 1 lemon, squeezed
  • 34 strawberries, chopped
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1 tbsp sugar-free sweetener (or honey/sugar)
  • 1 cup cold water or club soda
  • Lots of ice


  1. Cut the strawberries into 6 pieces each and add them to a glass with the sweetener and hot water. Use a fork or muddler to mash until it’s basically a paste. Let this sit while you do the next step.
  2. Roll the lemon against a flat surface to get the juices moving inside. Use a sharp knife to cut along the equator. Squeeze the lemons into a cup to collect as much juice as you can. You’re going to want about 3 tbsp per person. If you are doing hand squeezing, make sure to remove the seeds first.
  3. Add the lemon juice to the mashed strawberry and stir well to combine. Add some ice. For a fizzy refresher, top with club soda. For a non fizzy drink, use cold water.
  4. For the garnish, I like to use cut a cross section of the lemon and cut a line from the center to the outside. Place it on the rim of your glass and be sure to take a picture.
