Sparkling Strawberry Mint Limeade

Sparkling Strawberry Mint Limeade

I created this sparkling strawberry mint limeade last year and shared it as part of the menu for this girls’ night in. It was a big hit and I continued playing with the recipe throughout the spring and summer. A few failed renditions and many photos later, I found that the original version was not to be topped and thought it would be the perfect spring a summer refreshment to share with y’all as we go into warmer weather. The heat is almost upon us–especially in Texas–so I don’t think anybody could complain about an ice-cold drink, right?

There’s a two-step process to making this sparkling strawberry mint limeade. First, you throw the sugar, strawberry, mint, and lime ingredients into a blender or food processor to create a kind of concentrated syrup. Then you simply mix it up in a pitcher or carafe with seltzer water to get to the sparkling part. This method also allows you to make just a glass or two at a time, if you like. The syrup keeps in the fridge for about a week, in my experience. I think this recipe would also work wonderfully with different flavors like raspberry, blueberry, lemon, and maybe even orange. I’ll get to work on trying these out. 🙂 In the meantime, you should also check out this fizzy honey ginger lemonade and honey lavender lemonade for your summer sipping.

I’m a big fan of frozen blender drinks, in case you couldn’t already tell from these 2-minute frozen cherry pineapple margs or this frosé recipe! For a non-alcoholic option, this frozen watermelon mint lemonade could not possibly be easier.
