This homemade strawberry lemonade cocktail is the perfect refresher on a hot summer day. Pink lemonade vodka adds a grown-up twist to the already sweet and tangy pink lemonade for a pretty pink drink to cool you down.

Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail Ingredients

Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 4 cups of ice cubes
  • ⅔ cup pink lemonade concentrate
  • ⅔ cup pink lemonade vodka (I used Smirnoff brand)
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • Fresh strawberries and lemon slices for garnish

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

VODKA: You can substitute plain vodka for the pink lemonade vodka in this simple strawberry lemonade cocktail, but I really do recommend the pink lemonade version as it really works well to make a fantastic summertime cocktail. You can find the pink lemonade vodka in brands such as Smirnoff, Pink Whitney by New Amsterdam, and Svedka, to name a few great options.

SIMPLE SYRUP: I like to keep a premade simple syrup in my liquor cabinet to use for a number of cocktails. You can easily find it at any liquor store. You can make your own by combining equal parts of water and granulated sugar in a small saucepan. You will heat it just until the sugar dissolves (do not boil it), then allow it to cool completely before use. It can be stored in a lidded mason jar for up to 1 month in the refrigerator.

LEMONADE: You can use a traditional lemonade concentrate for the pink version. However, your drink will not be as pink as our recipe, but it will still taste delicious.

BOTTLED LEMONADE: You can use a strawberry lemonade that is bottled in place of the concentrate but just note that it will not be as strong of a lemonade drink (as it is already diluted). You may want to add a little more ice to get it to the consistency you desire.

How to Make This Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

You can make a single serving of this strawberry vodka lemonade recipe by just cutting the recipe in half. If you want to make a larger batch, you need to do so according to the capacity of your blender. You may want to turn the blender back on for a couple of seconds to recombine the ingredients if you make a larger batch and do not serve it all at one time.

STEP ONE: In the pitcher of a high-powered blender, add the ice, pink lemonade concentrate, pink lemonade vodka, and simple syrup.

STEP TWO: Blend on high speed for 45 seconds to 1 minute, or until your strawberry lemonade cocktail is smooth and no large lumps of ice remain. This will depend on the power of your blender.

PRO TIP:

If you are making a big batch of this easy drink, you can pour your mixture into a large pitcher or even a punch bowl instead of individual glasses.

STEP THREE: Pour into your cocktail glass and garnish with a fresh whole strawberry and a slice of fresh lemon.

PRO TIP:

How To Serve

Spiked strawberry lemonade is the perfect summer drink to cool you down. Enjoy this delightful alcoholic beverage and our fruit salsa and cinnamon chips for an afternoon snack. Add our non-alcoholic strawberry lemonade so that the littles in your life can have a fancy drink too.

Add our White Claw slushie and alcoholic frozen lemonade to your drink repertoire for a variety of summery coolers.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: These strawberry lemonade cocktails need to be enjoyed immediately upon blending them. As they sit, the ice will melt, and they will not keep the same consistency.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing this summer strawberry lemonade cocktail. It is best made fresh.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the best glass to use for this simple cocktail?

You can use any glass you have on hand for this easy recipe. We chose a tall glass, but it would also be a fun drink in a daiquiri glass or other fancy glass.

Can I use a different flavor of vodka in this recipe?

You can substitute plain vodka for the pink lemonade flavor, although we do find the pink lemonade vodka really enhances the taste of this delicious cocktail.

Can I make this ahead of time?

This vodka strawberry lemonade recipe is best enjoyed right away as the ice will begin to melt and change the consistency of the drink.
