Strawberry Vodka Cocktail Recipe

Strawberry Vodka Cocktail Recipe

Sipping on a strawberry vodka cocktail always puts me in a good mood. It’s one of those strawberry alcoholic drinks that invigorates me on scorching days. I looove its fresh flavors with a faint sweetness coming from the honey. Oh, and the lovely red hue of this strawberry smash cocktail only adds to its appeal!

This might be one of the simplest strawberry vodka drinks to make. There’s one catch, though: you should use the best ingredients.

By best, I mean the freshest strawberries and basil leaves you can find. Freshly-squeezed lemon juice boosts the taste of this strawberry drink, too.

Other recipes use sparkling wine, seltzer water, and sprite, but I prefer club soda. As for the vodka, Smirnoff might be the popular option for this strawberry vodka cocktail. But of course, feel free to tinker around with the ingredients to make a strawberry vodka drink that tastes perfect for you!

My strawberry vodka cocktail requires muddling” (lightly mashing the ingredients together) — which I insist you don’t skip. This will release the juices of strawberries and basil, allowing their flavors to blend well with the alcohol.

Making this strawberry basil vodka cocktail couldn’t be any easier. And I wouldn’t be surprised if it will quickly become one of your favorite vodka cocktail recipes. Cheers to refreshing strawberry cocktails, like this strawberry lemonade drink! It will keep us all relaxed on hot summer days!
