Update- I published this a few years ago, but I’m really craving some warm weather and thought this sounded good so I thought I would bring it to the front page!

First off, I bought a new laptop and now I’m able to type this up while sitting at soccer practice.  Woohoo!  I know this has nothing to do with strawberry lemonade mimosas, but I had to tell someone.  The only thing that would make this better is if I actually had a mimosa right now!

Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa with Basil

I was at baseball this weekend and the weather was so nice and the sun was shining.  It reminded me that it’s time to start thinking about my garden and having some drinks on my patio.

I love strawberry season and live in North Carolina and it will be here in about 6 weeks.  We have a strawberry patch less than a mile from my house and we go all the time.  

It’s a farm where you can pick them yourself or buy already picked fresh strawberries for a few dollars more.  We stock up and freeze them so we can use them in smoothies.

These aren’t the glasses in my photos, but I LOVE these!  I just added them to my wishlist.  They are perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch or New Year’s Eve.

Ingredients for EASY Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa with Basil

You’ll need three fresh ingredients to make this sweet and tasty cocktail.

  • Fresh strawberries
  • lemons– Here’s an inexpensive lemon juicer you can purchase online.
  • Fresh basil– I grow this in my garden.

You’ll need to use prosecco, champagne or any sparkling wine to make this a mimosa and sugar to complete this recipe. Costco has recently opened up less than 5 miles from my house and the Kirkland brand of prosecco is perfect for this recipe and it’s a great price.

How to make a strawberry mimosa with lemonade

Prep time is 20 minutes and you can make this ahead of time.

Step 1

Juice the lemons and blend lemon juice, strawberries and basil until smooth.

Step 2

Add the fruit mixture to a pot with sugar and some of the water. Cook until the sugar has melted.

Step 3

Pour into a pitcher with remaining water and stir well.

Step 4

Pour equal parts of strawberry lemonade and prosecco into champagne flutes and serve.

One good thing about this recipe is that you can make it nonalcoholic too, just add in more water instead of Prosecco.  Now kids can have some fresh strawberry lemonade too.
