I posted a recipe for a strawberry syrup. Which is fun… but what do you do with it?! This cocktail is what you do with it!!!

This is exactly what I want to be drinking all summer long.

I love a fruity cocktail in the summer. Specifically a fruit forward one. It’s light and bright and refreshing. Everything summer in a drink.

Ingredient breakdown…

  • Vodka is the alcohol base for this recipe. It’s a neutral alcohol so all the bright strawberry flavor can shine through.
  • Strawberry simple syrup is a recipe I came up with when I bought a few too many strawberries. Turns out it’s WONDERFUL in cocktails!
  • Lemon juice for a little acid to cut the sweetness and add some bright fresh flavor!
  • Triple sec which is an orange flavor liquor. For more bright citrus flavor!
  • Sparking water to top it off, dilute it a little bit, and add some bubbles!

Can I make this in batch form for a party?

Yes!! I mix everything together (including the sparking water) in a pitcher. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Then pour over ice and top with strawberries when guests arrive.
