This Copycat Sonic Lemonberry Slush is spot on to your favorite slushie at Sonic. Learn how easy it is to make right in the comfort of your own home.
Kayla and I love visiting happy hour at Sonic. When we lived in Hopkinsville, we were only two minutes from the Sonic.
But now? We live over 20 minutes away, so happy hour is few and far between, so she and I decided to try our hand at making our own Copycat Recipe for Sonic Lemonberry Slush.
This has to be one of my favorite drinks of all times that I have made. It is so refreshing! If you taste it and it is a little too sweet for you, just add some extra lemon juice. If it is too tart, just add a little more sugar or strawberry mixture.
This recipe uses just a few simple ingredients and before you know it, you will have a delicious lemonberry slush to call your own!
How to Make a Sonic Lemonberry Slush
To start, you need to chop up 1 cup of strawberries and add 1/4 cup of sugar to them.
You are going to mash them so that the sugar can create a delicious strawberry syrup. Let it set for 30 minutes. When the time is up, you should have something that looks like this.
Now, to a blender, add in your ice cubes, water, lemon juice, and almost all of your strawberries. Reserve about 2 tablespoons because you're going to need that to put in the glass at the end.
Once you get your slushie mixture made, take a tall glass and pour the remaining two tablespoons of strawberries into the bottom of the glass.
Top with some of the lemon chunks that you juiced. Now, pour your slushie on top and garnish with a strawberry and a fun straw!
And that's it! It is the perfect copycat recipe when you are craving your favorite slushie drink. This has always been mine. My daughter loves the blueberry one with the sour nerds in it.
