This refreshing and delightful concoction combines the sweetness of ripe strawberries with bold vodka notes. Each sip takes your taste buds on a sensational journey, one that’s perfect for a sunny afternoon or a special occasion.

The strawberry vodka martini is easy to craft. Gather fresh, ripe strawberries, then muddle them to release the juice using a muddling tool or a food processor. If you want, add simple syrup to enhance the sweet taste.

Next, place the muddled strawberries in a cocktail shaker, then add some ice cubes and strawberry-infused vodka. Shake and strain into a coupe glass.

Cheers to a pureed drink that’s as vibrant as its delicious, fruity taste!

2. Vodka Strawberry Mojito Cocktail

Vodka Strawberry Mojito Cocktail

Fans of mojito would be obsessed with this masterpiece of flavor fusion and refreshment. The vodka strawberry mojito is a harmonious blend of the usual mojito ingredients (soda water, lime, and mint) with quality vodka as the base spirit and fresh strawberries.

To make this, muddle lime wedges, mint leaves, and strawberries in an 8 to 12-ounce glass to release the oils and juices. Add some lime juice to deepen the citrusy and tangy element in the drink. Afterward, add simple syrup or grenadine and some crushed ice.

Lastly, add the vodka and top it with some sparkling soda water to add a bubbly effect. You can garnish the cocktail with a fresh strawberry and a sprig of mint.

The cocktail pairs well with grilled shrimp, citrus-glazed chicken skewers, and a fresh fruit platter.

3. Strawberry Elderflower Cocktail

Made with elderflower liqueur and pureed strawberry, this elegant cocktail is a definition of summer in a glass.

The first step to crafting this exquisite concoction is muddling the strawberries and straining them into a champagne flute. Next, add vodka and elderflower liqueur. Stir the drink using a cocktail spoon. Tilt the glass and add some chilled prosecco.

You can garnish the cocktail with a whole strawberry or a thin slice. Also, if you’re making this drink for a crowd, you can prepare the strawberry and store it in the fridge in advance.

4. Baileys Strawberries and Cream Martini

Baileys Strawberries and Cream Martini

Whether served as a show-stopping cocktail or a luxurious dessert, Baileys strawberries and cream martini delivers an unforgettable blend of flavors. You only need three ingredients to make this creamy cocktail: Baileys, vanilla vodka, and strawberry milk.

Although you can use the classic Baileys Irish Cream, we prefer the Strawberries and Cream flavor. Also, you can substitute vanilla vodka with plain vodka or a strawberry flavor.

Place all three ingredients in a cocktail shaker and add some ice cubes. Shake for a few seconds and then pour into a cocktail glass. For garnishing, a slice of fresh strawberry and whipped cream will do.

A delicious companion for this cocktail would be strawberry pizza, shortbread cookies, or mixed nuts.

5. Strawberry Honeysuckle Sparkler

Strawberry Honeysuckle Sparkler

Made with honeysuckle vodka, honey syrup, and fresh strawberries, this sparkler recipe is a divine combo for a summer hangout.

To make it, muddle the strawberries with honey syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add some ice cubes and honeysuckle vodka. Shake until it’s ice cold. Pour the drink into a rocks glass and top it with club soda to create bubbles.

We recommend using fresh strawberries to extract more juice and enhance the overall taste of the drink. Also, you can use a bar spoon or a wooden spoon instead of a muddler. And if you don’t like the taste of store-bought honey syrup, you can make homemade honey simple syrup.

6. Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail

Strawberry Vodka Lemonade Cocktail

Did you ever imagine lemon and strawberries in one glass? This strawberry lemonade is refreshing and easy to make. You’ll need freshly squeezed lemon juice, strawberry syrup, water, and vodka.

Pour the ingredients into a pitcher containing ice cubes. Stir to combine, then serve in an 8-ounce glass. Place a lemon wheel and whole strawberry at the tip of the glass, or throw a few pieces of both garnishings into the serving glass before pouring the drink.

The beauty of this drink is the quantity you’ll get from a single batch, making it easy to whip up multiple batches to serve a thirsty crowd. And while you may be tempted to use store-bought lemon juice, getting a citrus juicer eases the stress of extracting the natural lemon juice. You can also add a carbonated drink before serving to add bubbles to the libation.

7. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini

More than just a drink, the chocolate-covered strawberry martini captures the perfect picture of romance and something extraordinary. It makes a great dessert for Valentine’s Day, a date night, or an anniversary.

You’ll need strawberry syrup and chocolate syrup for this recipe. Drizzle them in the serving glass in a zigzag pattern. Now, pour some chocolate liqueur or chocolate wine and white chocolate liquor into a cocktail shaker, then add some ice cubes. Next, pour some strawberry-infused vodka on the ice, cover, and shake vigorously.

Place a strainer over the cocktail shaker and pour the drink into the serving glass. You can garnish with a chocolate-covered strawberry or some slices of strawberry.

8. Berry Vodka Smash

Berry Vodka Smash

This refreshing cocktail infuses ripe strawberries and raspberries with a light vodka flavor at the backend. We’re also introducing fresh herbs. Although mint leaves are the traditional ingredients for a smash, any herb in season will do. And for this recipe, we’d mix mint leaves with fresh rosemary.

Start by muddling the fruits and herbs in a cocktail shaker to extract the juices and oils. Add some lemon juice, honey syrup, vodka, and ice. Shake vigorously until it’s cold. Pour the drink into the serving glass.

You can top it with more fruits and ice and garnish the glass rim with a mint leaf or rosemary sprig and a lemon wedge.

9. Strawberry Basil Vodka Cocktail

Strawberry Basil Vodka Cocktail

Let’s take advantage of summer’s bounty with a glass of basil and strawberry, a match made in heaven. The drink is healthy, and you can cut down on sugar by using a moderate amount of honey. Also, you can make a large batch for serving at a picnic or summer soiree.

For this recipe, add strawberries, basil leaves, lime juice, and sweetener (honey, agave, or maple syrup) into a cocktail shaker. Muddle to combine, not pureed. Add vodka and some ice cubes. Shake until cold.

Add some soda into the mix, strain, and pour the drink into a glass garnished with a fresh basil leaf and a slice of strawberry.

10. Pineapple Lemonade Vodka Cocktail

Pineapple Lemonade Vodka Cocktail

Punch up a simple pineapple lemonade into a boozy cocktail with the addition of strawberries and vodka. This is one drink you want to share with friends, so grab a pitcher and invite the crew.

Add the pineapple lemonade, strawberries, simple syrup, and some vodka into a blender to get a smooth texture. Pour the mixture into a pitcher.

Before serving, add crushed ice and some lemonade into the glass and top up with a carbonated drink. Stir and add the cocktail. You can garnish with chunks of pineapple, a strawberry, and a lemon wedge.

11. Watermelon Strawberry Martini

Watermelon Strawberry Martini

With its high water content, a watermelon drink is a healthy way to stay hydrated. To make this deliciously fruity cocktail, blend some watermelon cubes and strawberries, then pour into a cocktail shaker. Add some ice, vodka, and fresh lime juice. Shake the mixture until it’s ice cold. Double strain to get a smooth cocktail.

If you’re making this drink in a pitcher, don’t add ice until you’re ready to serve. You can also drizzle some grenadine if you’ve got a sweet tooth.

12. Strawberries and Cream Cocktail

Strawberries and Cream Cocktail

This simple but gorgeous cocktail is a perfect blend of cream flavor and strawberries. We’re making it a tad stronger than the usual cocktail by mixing strawberry vodka and whipped vodka.

Shake both vodkas in a mixing glass with ice, then pour into a glass. Add some muddled strawberries to the drink, and if you’re a lightweight, top up with soda water.


Our strawberry vodka cocktails are fruity, healthy, and easy to whip up. You and your friends will certainly enjoy their refreshing taste, especially on a hot day.
