We are so excited to share this gorgeous recipe with you! A super refreshing and a “feast for the eyes” strawberry mint lemonade. Who doesn’t love a sweet and fresh summery drink? It’s the perfect way to transport yourself to an instant island vacation vibe or glam up any party. Let’s get straight to it then!
In doing some recipe testing for lemonade, we learned that nearly everyone has a drastically different preference for how tart and how sweet they like their lemonade.
Luckily, this beverage is super-easy to adjust to your liking! If you want more of a lemony punch (or if your lemons are particularly small), add some more lemon! If it’s too tart for your liking, add some sugar or additional maple syrup or water. Just be sure to add little bits at a time, and taste as you go, to achieve your own personal strawberry lemonade perfection.
The key to this recipe is the strawberry syrup you’ll need to prepare. It makes the color of this lemonade look amazing, and allows the strawberry flavor to really shine through. Since strawberries have naturally occurring sugars, they not only add to the flavor but also help balance the lemon juice in this drink.
When we think of hosting a vegan barbecue or preparing something to bring to one, we usually think of vegan potato salad, pasta salad, or any “easy to throw together” salad (like this summer tomato corn salad). We seldom think of preparing a super refreshing drink for the guests. And too often, those events end up being overloaded with salads.
Why don’t we start a new tradition and agree with adding more delicious and cooling homemade drinks to the mix?
Especially on those hot days under the sun, it’s always good to hydrate and eat as many fruits as possible, so this strawberry mint lemonade is perfect for that! Ideally, keep the bottles or jugs in a big bucket of ice in the shade. I’m so ready for a bbq, are you?
We’re all constantly aiming to drink more water, right? It’s common knowledge but not an easy feat. I’ve started carrying a reusable water bottle with me everywhere, which helps a lot. But I’m continually trying to find other ways to up my water intake.
If you’re not a fan of chugging plain water, then lemonades (or infused waters) are a great way to get in some hydration.
You can take this strawberry mint lemonade recipe and use it as a blueprint to create your own extra-special version. Let’s brainstorm some ideas, shall we?
Fun, right? So many cool and delicious combinations we could come up with!
We want to thank our amazing recipe tester J.J Steele for helping us perfect this recipe!

Such a refreshing beverage!
This might be my favorite summer drink ever! the combo of strawberry, mint, and lemon is so good!
My new FAVORITE summertime beverage! I love that it’s so pretty, but also tastes as good as it looks. It’s amazing how well the vibrant strawberries and the sweet mint (I used peppermint from my garden – yay!) have the perfect pairing! Sweet, a little bit tart and just the right amount of oomph from the mint. I won’t be going back to boring old lemonade now! lol
YESSSS, my favorite combo for a summery drink! I always adjust the lemon-water ratio each time depending on how tart I want it.
Oh wow. This was so good…very flavorful and refreshing.
