strawberry lemonade recipe #gourmetproject with rosemary and honey

This is a homemade strawberry lemonade recipe with real lemons, organic strawberries, and honey.

But I add a little extra step and flavor the water with fresh herbs.
Rosemary, mint, and basil are strawberries’ best friends, at least for Italian palates. For this natural strawberry lemonade, I chose rosemary. But you can substitute it and make a mint or basil strawberry lemonade.

In my dreams, the perfect picnic is a little in between “Pretty Woman” and “Little Women”: strawberries & champagne in a rustic backyard with linen & lace candid napkins and the perfect wicker picnic basket. Perfection…. And not so complicated… I could do it anytime! … And I will, but until that day, I’m filing recipes that suit this girly pinkish dreamy day.

Author Claudia Rinaldi | Gourmet Project


  • 10 oz organic strawberries 280 gr
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 organic lemons medium size
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 13 oz water 370 gr


  1. Place the water and one of the rosemary sprigs in a saucepan, bring to a boil, remove from the heat and let chill. Remove the sprigs and any needle left.

  2. Clean the strawberries and remove the stems. Juice the lemons.

  3. Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse for a couple of minutes.

  4. Taste and add honey to your taste. I believe 3 tablespoons are enough. 

  5. Filter the liquid to remove eventual seeds.

  6. Place the other rosemary sprig in a glass bottle and add the lemonade. Wait for the lemonade to chill and refrigerate it for at least a couple of hours before serving.

Recipe Notes

This is a no sugar strawberry lemonade recipe, but feel free to substitute honey with sugar according to your personal tastes.
