Lemonade is a summer staple, but sparkling lemonade drinks will, of course make everything better; whether you’re sitting poolside soaking up the Vitamin D or hosting a small gathering.

At Bubbly Side of Life we love creating bubbly cocktails and, by request, months ago we began creating bubbly mocktails too…with the help of my 14 year old nephew AKA the bubblyologist.  You can find so many fun bubbly cocktail and mocktail recipes on the blog under Bubbly Recipes.

Sparkling Lemonade Drinks

The best part of these sparkling lemonade drinks we’re about to share with you is that you can make them individually or by the pitcher.  

And one of our favorite things to do is make a delicious base and then you can top it either mocktail style or cocktail style.  This is especially easy if you’re having a get together and you can have pitchers of the base and then mocktail style buckets of beverages or cocktail style buckets of beverages.  

We gathered all sorts of ideas for you on how this could look at the Bubbly Side of Life Amazon Shop.  You could easily set this up much like that of a mimosa bar, so check out that section for sure.

Mocktail Style

Since all drinks have to be bubbly, these are the bubbly beverages we always have on hand to top off our mocktails:

  • Sprite
  • 7 Up
  • Sparkling water/club soda
  • Tonic water
  • Ginger ale
  • Sparkling grape juice
  • Sparkling limeade
  • Other sodas (lemon elderflower from Trader Joe’s when you can find it is a great one!)

Cocktail Style

And of course, all of our bubbly cocktails are topped with….bubbly!  We do typically use a brut bubbly so that it’s not super sweet, but you can use this sweetness reference tool to pick the bubbly of your liking to make your drink as sweet as you like.  

Also, with when we make the drink with this delicious base, we often times will add vodka, tequila, gin, St. Germain, really your favorite hard liquor. to truly turn it into a bubbly cocktail.
