If you’ve been around here long enough, then you already know that I’m not a drinker! But I do like to have a fancy cup in my hand every now and then. So mocktail drinks in pretty glasses, are kinda my thing. If you’re looking for a yummy, not too sweet mocktail drink to enjoy this summer then this one’s for you.
Strawberry Lemon Limeade Mocktail Drink
To make this drink you’ll need the following ingredients. The FULL recipe is at the end so don’t worry. I’m just gonna walk you through the recipe with some pictures for now.
- Diced Strawberries
- Strawberry Sparkling Water
- Ice Cubes
Start off by adding the lemonade and lime juice to the diced strawberries. Then add one teaspoon of sugar.
I used store bought lemonade I highly suggest ( Simply Lemonade!) to act as a sweetener but I understand that it might not be sweet enough for you, so just add that 1/2 teaspoon of sugar ( or more) to your liking.
One of those weird adulting things that happens to you as you get older is that you don’t like things too sweet anymore. Haa! Or is that just me? I don’t want things to taste like the Kool-aid of my childhood. haha!
Next, crushed the strawberries, lemonade, lime juice and sugar together with a muddler. Muddlers are used for fruits and herbs when making mocktail drinks like this. You don’t want to smash the ingredients. The goal is to simply release some of the juice.
Then add about a half a cup of ice. I like to use ice from my countertop ice maker. It makes nugget ice just like you see at sonic and makes the perfect ice for mocktails like this!
You’ll also want to make sure you use a nice and sturdy glass. My favorite everyday glassware are these Polaris 16-Piece Assorted Glassware Set. They have a heavy base and are easy to hold! They hold up really well in the dishwasher too.
I like the fact that I can get a clean wash out of them without leaving any residue. I’m not sure if that has more to deal with my dishwasher or the actual glasses, ha! But either way they’re great.

I also talk about my favorite white knife sets . Remember I’m sort of a housewares nerd/expert when it comes to these things, so I love to share all my sourcing and information with you!
Next, fill the drink to the top with strawberry sparkling water. This gives the drink a little bit of fizz and more flavor.
But you can also use club soda if you have that on hand.
Garnish with sliced limes and strawberries and serve right away.
This recipe is for individual drinks. So you can set up a little station at your next party and print out the directions for your guests!
