Sparkling Strawberry Mint Lemonade
How many of you are looking forward to Summer BBQ’s, refreshing pool fun, hot-sunburn filled beach days, and oldies music in the background? Well, I am! A memory I’ll always remember with my family is the oldies music that we play at every family cookout with family. Whenever I’m in the store or in my car and a certain song come on the radio, I am immediately reminded of our summer holidays spent cooking burgers, good conversation and getting our scorched bodies in the water all while listening to some good Hall & Oates.
Ahhh memories. I love summer! Annnnd It’s right around the corner! So you know what that means, right?!
Okay! well if you don’t, let me fill ya in. It means refreshing, thirst quenching homemade-Sparkling Strawberry MINT Lemonade! HELLO. Life does get that much better. I absolutely love this recipe! It’s not only beautiful to the eye, but refreshing and perfect for a sunny BBQ day!
The strawberries are almost hitting their season and are already a brilliant sweet red, and that just could not excite me more! Who doesn’t like lemonade, anyways?!
This recipe is suuuuper easy and is ready within minutes to serve as a definite crowd-pleaser! In this recipe, I used sparkling water because I’ll drink it over water any day! I’m slightly obsessed. Though as I go on in life I realize there is a good majority of people who are disgusted by it. PEOPLE, why is that?! You’re missing out. Really. But, it is an easy swap if you just want to use water. 🙂 Either way it’s DE-LISH and a beautiful accessory to any drink table!
