Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade is a great refreshing drink for summer days. Adding a dash of strawberries to the classic lemonade makes it taste delicious, neither too sour nor too sweet. Sparkling water and a bit of Limoncino if used will look like the cherry above as they turn this drink into something very sophisticated.
