Strawberry-Mint Sparkling Limeade – A sparkling mocktail made with the refreshing summer flavors of strawberries, mint, and lime.
Pssssst! I’m keepin’ it clean for the all the kids tomorrow, but YOU can add a bottle of Champagne to this Strawberry-Mint Sparkling Limeade for a crazy-good adult friendly sipper!
Hey Hey Hey! Happy Friday, friends! I bet many of you are off work today – YAY!! Some of you are possibly traveling away for the weekend – LUCKY! But there are those like me, sitting at home, prepping for the backyard shenanigans that are about to take place in 24 hours. YEAH!
I have my Red, White and Blue Tiramisu ready… DO YOU? You should! 😉
My beef burgers are about to be stuffed with some feta, and I’m wrapping my hot dogs in bacon!
I’m possibly a bit more excited than some, but whatever. Food is life. Life is food. AM I hearing high-fives?! HECK YES!
Kebapi and Raznici are also happening. Gotta bring some o’ dat immigrant-food out, too, you know?! 😀
Strawberry-Mint Sparkling Limeade
SO! This draaaank! Strawberry-Mint Sparkling Limeade has been blowing up my entire summer. I’ve been making pitchers of it for the past 4 weekends, pretending that I had to host a bunch of my dear friends. It was all a lie.
It was me, the pitcher, and my husband. The lil’ ones, too. That’s why it’s a mocktail. After 8 pm, it was a cocktail. We all need a nightcap.
This has EVERYTHING-summer right inside of it. It has strawberries. It has mint. It has fresh lime juice. It even has CHAMPAGNE, if you want it to. It’s like summer in a pitcher!
Sidenote part II: Why am I screaming so much today? Overuse of exclamation points! #sorrynotsorry #ilovelife #ilovethisdrank
You know what’s cool about this Limeade? The only thing you’re responsible for is buying the goods. And turning on the blender.
Get it all together and let’s do this! Cling Cling!
HAVE THE HAPPIEST 4TH!!!

Can I use a mix of frozen & fresh berries for this?
Hi Jas! I haven’t tried it with frozen because when you blend frozen fruits, it thickens the drink, just like a smoothie. I bet it would still be delicious, but the texture will be thicker.
Hi! Just wanted to check back & say I made this with a mix of fresh & frozen berries (slightly defrosted). This is such a fantastic recipe! Definitely a keeper & will be making this again.
i printed this recipe and the lemonade – whick i now need desperately. fell down hard on kitchern floor and disclocated left shoulder-‘course i’m left handed. been in sling for 2weeks. so could you please make me a pitcher full so i could drink and not care(LOL). no cooking for a while but still look at all the goodies you post
Hi Janet! SO happy to hear from you! I’m so sorry about your shoulder 🙁 I hope you are feeling better! If you can believe it, just the other day I thought, “where’s my friend, Janet… haven’t heard from her”… and now here you are!! Take care and I wish you a very speedy recovery.
What a perfect mocktail! This is probably as yummy as it is pretty! Love your pictures!
This drink looks so beautiful, and I can’t wait to try it!! I love stuff like this!
Ooh, I love this drink too! I’ll take the champagne in mine if you please. 🙂
Totally making this soon! With the champagne, obvi. It looks like the perfect pool drink!
Great refreshing drink!! Screams of summer! And beautiful photos as usual! Happy Fourth!!
So pretty, I think I need the whole pitcher (plus the champagne!) 😉
This sounds and looks completely refreshing and perfect for summer! I can see why you have made pitchers and pitchers of this!
RED WHITE AND BLUE tiramisu? Okay, sorry temporarily distracted. I wonder how well this pairs with it eh? Have a great long weekend, Kate!
The second you mentioned kebapi I got a huge craving. Now I want that with shopska salad, and a glass of this limeade and my weekend will be complete!
Oh, now you are speakin’ my language!!! haha 😀 Shopska salad should be up on the blog very soon! hehe
What a refreshing drink! I will definitely try it.
This limeade looks like summer – I love it! Need to make it soon!
Gorgeous! This is perfect to celebrate the weekend! Cheers!
This looks so refreshing. I bet with a good blender you don’t even have to juice the limes and then you get even more limey flavor. This will be perfect this weekend.
This is the perfect summer beverage for the entire family! Can’t blame you for making this many times over, I would have done the same! So cool and refreshing – pinned!
Sounds delicious and I love the photos! With a slight modification/addition, will definitely be on my summer patio cocktail list!! 🙂 Pinned!!
Must. Have. This. NOW! This looks incredible! I am heading to the grocery store in a bit (with every other person on the planet, I’m sure) and I need to get this stuff on my list. Yum!!!
Wow, this sounds like the perfect summer drink!
