This is a delicious, refreshing sparkling limeade made with fresh strawberries and mint. It’s super easy to whip up – just make a minty strawberry purée and add sparkling water. The strawberry purée comes together easily in the blender and is actually best made ahead so the bubbles have a chance to settle.
- 6 large strawberries
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1-3-1/2 cup sugar, depending on your sweetness preference
- 12 mint leaves
- Sparkling water
- In a blender, blend strawberries, sugar, and lime juice until completely smooth. Add mint and blend at a lower speed so that mint leaf pieces are still somewhat visible. Pour mixture in an airtight container or glass jar and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to let bubbles settle.
- To make each drink, fill a 10 ounce glass halfway with ice. Add 5 tablespoons purée, then 1 cup of sparkling water. Stir gently to mix. Serve immediately.
