Red Robin Freckled Lemonade

Red Robin Freckled Lemonade comes from the Red Robin restaurants that are known for their tasty treats. Unique menu items are their specialty, and this special lemonade is no exception. It’s a tangy lemonade with strawberries that really hits the spot.

If you have never been to the Red Robin restaurant before you are missing out on a place that knows how to do a great burger. They serve up a variety of burgers, they have a delicious way of putting together unique combinations of flavors on their burgers.

They also make some crispy french fries that are so good, and they give you a bottomless plate of these french fries.

Red Robin has a really nice bar filled with adult cocktails and many family-friendly beverages so no one will be left out when you go here. One of my favorite drinks is the Red Robin Freckled Lemonade.

I think when you go out for a meal one of the things that makes it special is getting to order items you don’t normally order every day. For me, this often means special drinks and appetizers. Here it is the Red Robin Freckled Lemonade.

I love this lemonade because it is non-alcoholic. So often it is hard to find a drink that doesn’t require any alcohol. So the whole family can enjoy this special freckled lemonade.


For the Red Robin Freckled Lemonade, I use store-bought lemonade (I really like the Minute Maid brand). But you could use homemade lemonade if you like.

I use frozen sliced strawberries with syrup.

If you want to be fancy you can also add a few chopped strawberries for garnish.

How to Make Freckled Lemonade

  1. Place thawed strawberries and syrup into the bottom of a tall highball glass.
  2. Add lemonade and stir the mixture together.
  3. Fill the glass with ice. Garnish with fresh strawberries.
  4. Or you can use a shaker if you have one on hand.
  5. Pour the lemonade, thawed strawberries and syrup into the shaker.
  6. Shake and pour over ice. Garnish with fresh strawberries if desired.

One thing I can promise is that you can make this homemade for about a fifth the price of when you order this one out. Why not make a whole pitcher of these and serve this up for a special meal at home?

Sometimes you want a drink with a bit more of a punch. Red Robin uses Smirnoff Citrus vodka to give this drink an adult version of this drink. You should add 1 1/2 ounces to 2 ounces to your drink to turn it into an adult beverage.

  1. Master Sandwich

    This is probably going to sound cranky, but to be a copycat recipe you might as well get it right. It’s frozen 4+1 strawberries (specific syrup ratio) and minute maid lemonade. That’s how we do it at red Robin. It needs to be made in a tornado glass. Not a highball. *Facepalm*

    The grammar on this article is horrible.

      Hey, with a name like Master Sandwich I would expect a firm response. Thank you for the proper ratio. Most people do not have tornado glasses. So I thought it was ok to share they could use a highball glass. Thank you for your help and insight.

  2. RedRobinServer

    you need to first mound the glass with ice, then add the defrosted strawberries with syrup on top, then the lemonade, then lemon wedge, I have served at red robin. This gives a nice look especially if you have the signature tornado glass which you can purchase for 3 dollars.

    Having waitressed at a Red Robin, I can say that this is *almost* correct – you actually put the ice in first, dump the strawberries on top of the ice, and then fill with lemonade. This give the drink a “freckled” look throughout, and also saves you from having to stir the strawberries to mix up the flavor.
