About this Recipe

What’s better than strawberry lemonade on a warm sunny day? Spiked Strawberry Lemonade! Roasting the strawberries in Brava concentrates their flavor and natural sweetness, which pairs perfectly with fresh-squeezed lemonade and vodka. Once roasted, Chef Erin mashes the strawberries with a potato masher to keep their texture. If you prefer a smoother drink, feel free to blend the strawberries after roasting instead. Make this recipe a mocktail and kid-friendly by simply omitting the vodka.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups halved strawberries (about 16 strawberries)
