This strawberry limeade recipe is one of my favorite summer drinks.  This limeade recipe is an easy combination of simple syrup, lime essential oils and fresh strawberries.

My love of strawberry limeade started a few decades ago with my first sip at a Sonic restaurant.  After figuring out how to make lemonade a few years ago, I realized that I could switch out the lemons for limes and make limeade. And this strawberry limeade recipe is so quick and easy to make, it’s faster than a trip to Sonic.

The first time I made this I used fresh squeezed lime juice. I need a cup.  Yeah, that was some work.  The next time I used bottled lime juice from the store. Less work, but I wasn’t really thrilled with the added preservatives in it.  This time I used lime essential oil. It’s easier, faster, and because it’s straight up lime oil, no added chemicals. It took a bit of fiddling to get the right amount in to get a real limey flavor, but now that I have that figured out, this is my go to!

Not all essential oils are edible. Due to lack of purity, 98% of essential oils sold should NOT be ingested. An edible essential oil will be labeled “therapeutic-grade” and have a “Supplement Facts” box on the label showing the nutritional value – do NOT use just any brand of essential oil for cooking/flavoring foods. Be sure to use pure oils from reliable sources, not synthetic scents or flavorings.

If you need enough for a crowd, then double this recipe to make a pitcher.  You do need to add water to dilute this or it’s really sweet.  Start with a few cups and increase the water until you reach a flavor you like.

    Hi there, I was looking for a recipe like this one, thanks for sharing, by the way, what is simple syrup?

    • Camille
      April 8, 2015

      Simple syrup is basically liquid sugar. Sugar won’t dissolve in cold liquids. So you basically dissolve sugar in warm water and then use that “syrup” to sweeten cold beverages. It works great for iced tea and iced coffee!
