Strawberry Limeade Gin and Tonic

Share this...

Last Updated on June 8, 2023 by Leah Hall

A twist on the classic summer cooler, a Strawberry Limeade, we made this limeade cocktail boozy and refreshing!


This is a delicious Limeade cocktail perfect for summer with refreshing flavors and great for summer parties and BBQ’s. The iceball has fresh strawberries and juniper berries inside of it. This ice ball takes a little work, but is impressive and a fun party trick as it melts into your cocktail.


This iceball helps add some flavor to your drink as it melts and makes for a fun sip as the flavors change a bit!


Strawberry Limeade Cocktail

Strawberry Limeade is always a favorite choice of mine if we go to Sonic and get a drink. The boozy version is no exception to this rule. Strawberry and Lime compliment each other really well, as do the Gin and Tonic, so we thought, why not a match up?

Strawberry Simple Syrup

For this fun twist on a classic gin and tonic, we start with a homemade strawberry syrup. I simply cook down strawberries with sugar, water, and a squeeze of lemon juice. This leaves me with a beautiful mix-in that keeps well in the refrigerator for a few weeks.

Tips and Tricks

  • What Can I Use Instead of Strawberries? Raspberries are a good option. But, you may need to add a little extra simple syrup as raspberries are generally more tart than strawberries. Blackberries or blueberries are also a great option.
  • Vodka Recommendations: Vodka is a pretty neutral base spirit, but there can be a difference in quality and we don’t buy a lot of bottom shelf liquors.  We love to use Smirnoff, Sipsmith, or Ford’s.
  • Tonic Water: Flavored tonics can be a great option: grapefruit or elderflower would be tasty in this.
  • Can I Make A Non Alcoholic Version? Yep! Just leave out the gin, and maybe add some flavored sparkling water!

What Ingredients are Needed for the Strawberry Limeade Gin & Tonic?

  • Lime Juice: freshly squeezed is best!
  • Strawberry Simple Syrup: fresh homemade and delicious, this is a great ingredient for a lot of cocktails.
  • Gin: we used a London Dry Gin although a citrus gin would be lovely in this too!
  • Tonic Water: any will do, use your favorite.
  • Juniper Berries: a main ingredient in most gin, but we use them as garnish!
  • Strawberries: Also to cut up and used as garnish. Also add in some lime peels!

We think this is a great cocktail especially for those super hot summer days, and a limeade cocktail is definitely called for! Feel free to sub out the strawberries for other berries – blackberries, blueberries or raspberries if you would like. They would all be tasty.

And feel free to use flavored tonic water if you prefer, too! Grapefruit would be lovely in this!

It's SO hard to photograph drinks (for me, anyway). You nail it every time! I love gin. And gin loves me!! (and my husband loves it when I drink it, because...oh never mind).

I'll make these asap!
