Fresh Strawberry Limeade Soda

Print Email

Ingredients:
for the strawberry sauce: 1 pint of fresh strawberries, rinced, stems removed
2 tablespoons white, organic sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons water

for the limeade:
3/4 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
Sparkling water (I used Pelligrino)

Instructions:
For the strawberry sauce: In your food processor, puree all the ingredients. Set a strainer over a glass bowl and pour puree into the strainer. Once strained, cover and refrigerate.

For the limeade: Make a simple syrup with the sugar and water by putting both ingredients into a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil and stir unitl all the sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat down to simmer and let steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly. Combine the lime juice and simple syrup and store, covered in the fridge. When ready to use, mix the strawberry sauce, limeade, and pelligrino to create a fruity, tangy soda.

If serving to a crowd, before your guest arrive, combine all of the sauce and all of the limeade with 4-5 cups of pelligrino in a pitcher. Add ice, lime slices and bit of fresh mint leaves. Let your guest self serve.
