When the weather heats up, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a pool party. Southerners who are seasoned in the art of entertaining know that each party requires a signature drink; a pool party is no exception. But the only problem is that summertime gatherings are more likely to be spontaneous—pool parties are often thrown together last-minute, when you see the promising weather forecast, leaving little time for preparation. But hosting casual get-togethers is easy when you’ve got a recipe like this Frozen Strawberry Lemonade in your back pocket.

This fruity and refreshing Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is the perfect party guest. It's both tangy and sweet, made with frozen strawberries and lemonade concentrate that’re easy to keep on hand. Club soda adds a bit of sparkle and strawberries bring a fruity flavor and a jazzy pink color to differentiate it from your run-of-the-mill summer lemonade. Best of all, this whimsical treat will be popular amongst kids and adults alike (for an adults-only twist, spike your frozen lemonade with a splash of vodka). Swirl in large glasses for an inviting and cool pool-side treat.

How to Make It

In a small bowl, combine frozen strawberries with sugar and let sit for at least 10 minutes. In a blender, combine frozen lemonade, ice, lemon zest, and ½ cup club soda. Pour into separate pitcher. In the clean blender, combine strawberries and ¾ cup club soda. Layer strawberries and lemon slush in cups. Stir to gently combine. Garnish cups with a lemon slice.
