Kim’s blog is one of my favorites. I love how her personality shines through in each of her posts. Talk about a fun read every day!

Today I’m sharing a summertime drink recipe that my kids absolutely love. And the best part…They’re SO easy to make!


Nothing screams summer beverage like a sweet and tangy lemonade. This recipe for Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade is a family favorite and so yummy to sip on by the pool or while reading a good book on these hot summer days.


Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade

  • prepared lemonade concentrate (or favorite lemonade)
  • Sprite
  • 1 small package frozen strawberries, thawed and pureed
  • ice cubes
  • lemon wedges, to garnish

Place 2 Tbsp pureed strawberries at the bottom of a 12oz beverage glass. Add 3 or 4 whole ice cubes.

Pour 1/2 c. Sprite and 1/2 c. lemonade over the ice cubes. Garnish with a lemon wedge and serve with a straw. Enjoy!


It was a pleasure being here today! Thanks for having me, Kim!
