Using other berries in this drink would be a great way to change it up. We love blackberries and raspberries, both of which come into season just after strawberries. All three types of berries are easy to grow in your backyard, and you should definitely give it a go this summer! Fresh berries are so much more delicious than ones from the grocery store.

Adapting Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade

You know, a recipe is not truly perfect until you’ve added your own touch to it. That’s why we encourage you to play with your food. Let your inner chef come out and play and change up this recipe. Here are some ideas:

  • Try using frozen strawberries, it will keep the drink cool and a little crunchy.
  • Add a shot of your favorite artisan gin or vodka to make an adult version of this refreshing drink.
  • Mix all but club soda and strawberries and freeze in an ice cube tray, pour club soda over ice cubes using the fresh strawberries as garnish.
