There are so many fruity, fresh cocktails in the world, using every fruit you can think of.
While we love lemons, limes, and oranges in our drinks, there is nothing quite like a handful of ripe strawberries to give us that summery feeling!
In this article, we have created a list of our 30 favorite strawberry-themed cocktails. Some use muddled strawberries, while others utilize a sweet, strawberry-infused liquor or syrup.
Either way, each of these drinks taste truly delicious.
If you’re an avid strawberry lover, and you can appreciate a yummy cocktail on a hot summer’s day, you are going to love this list.
So, let’s get started! Here are 30 fruity, fresh strawberry cocktails for you to try at home.
1. El Chapo
This delicious cocktail that delivers the utmost rejuvenation is made with dry, herbal gin and two fruity accompaniments.
El Chapo is a three-ingredient dish that contains a tonne of flavour and ingredients. Gin, grapefruit beer, and some strawberry-infused Aperol are the only ingredients required.
Since juicy, ripe strawberries were used in its creation, the Fresh Strawberry tastes so fantastic! This is a tasty, attractive cocktail made with some whiskey and fruit juice.
The Fresh Strawberry, like any beverage made with local produce, stands to profit from being prepared in the spring and summer when strawberries are in their prime.
United States-born The Kentucky Kiss was initially created by powerlifter Lauren A. Tussey. Named after her trademark red lipstick, this treat is equally delicious and sinful.
This beverage needs both maple syrup and bourbon. Additionally, garnish your glasses with sugar that has been smoked with bourbon for the most genuine sensation.
Whiskey has a rather complex flavour, and if you pay extra, it will taste so much better. For this delicious cocktail, we advise choosing the best whiskey available.
Once you’ve chosen your preferred whiskey, create this tasty, refreshing treat at home by shaking it with lemon juice, mashed strawberries, mint, and some syrup.
This strawberry-infused cocktail – which, in Spanish, translates to ‘by my lover’ – is a must-have this season.
This cool drink only needs four ingredients, plus a little Tabasco sauce for some added zing.
Although it is sweet and fruity, this beverage has a slight kick that will keep you going back for more.
Though several of the drinks on this list are ideal for summer, nothing quite heralds the start of the springtime like some rhubarb and strawberries.
It’s not too difficult to make your own rhubarb syrup for this cocktail. Once finished, you can blend it with the vodka or gin – your decision – among other ingredients.
7. Rosé Cobbler
Beverages that incorporate liquor/wine with sugar, fresh fruit, and a herb, then shaken and served over crushed ice, are considered to fit the template of a great, attractive cocktail.
This recipe is no exception.
This pretty-in-pink drink has garnishes of berries and mint that make it appear as wonderful as it tastes. Ideal for warm-weather evenings!
Iced tea and vodka lovers, rejoice!
This delectable drink’s base ingredient is a tea-infused vodka, which is accompanied by the fresh flavors of strawberries, lemon juice, agave nectar, and a sprig of mint.
It’s best to hold off on making this summertime beverage until the berries are in season in order to fully amp up their vibrancy and tartness.
When it’s hot outdoors, lemonade is just one of those cooling drinks we all look forward to, but we all know it tastes even better with a little rum mixed in.
To make this sweet delight, combine strawberry and mint puree with lemon juice, water, and vodka, in addition to simple syrup.
The rather unconventional ingredients in this dish include half-and-half, strawberries, and raspberries. They all combine to form a kind of gelato texture, that provides a beautiful milky flavour.
This strawberry and cream mimosa is the perfect cocktail if you want something that almost tastes like a milkshake… but, with alcohol!
When nectarines and strawberries are combined, the flavour is the epitome of summer. Add in a little sangria and tequila, and you may relax in your lawn, close your eyes, and imagine you’re on a tropical beach.
Simply pour the sliced fruit, tequila, and wine all into a pitcher, and mix together. It’s that simple!
Basil, a member of the mint family, has an aftertaste that is somewhat flowery but also peppery and sweet. It’s a summertime herb that tastes great on pizzas, salads, and even cocktails.
Try this gin drink if freshness is what you’re craving. It tastes absolutely lovely with the fruit, and is ideal for sunny summer evenings.
A bellini is a delectable concoction of peach puree and prosecco, while mimosas are traditionally created with orange juice and champagne.
This strawberry Rossini, often known as a Rossini, is just a blend of prosecco and strawberry puree. It looks amazing with its foamy, pinkish-red deliciousness and tastes fantastic.
Next up, we have another cocktail that, somewhat, mimics your favorite strawberry milkshake. The Strawberry Blonde is filled with fruity goodness, along with Creme de Banana, coconut milk, and half & half.
This may be a Blonde cocktail, but it certainly isn’t dumb. It is, however, beautiful! Give this pretty-in-pink concoction a try if you need to cool down on a hot summer day.
You must try this vodka, fresh strawberry, Cointreau, and mildly lime-flavored strawberry Cosmopolitan. You should serve this absolutely superb cocktail at all of your beach parties and outdoor barbecues.
You may buy vodka that has already been infused with strawberries, but you can also make your own at home by mixing some strawberries with vodka and letting them sit for the night.
Daiquiris are made with a lot of white rum and simple syrup, unlike margaritas, which are made with tequila and triple sec for sweetness.
The ability to employ frozen fruits makes frozen cocktails the greatest. In fact, doing so is preferable! Without adding a lot of ice, you’ll get a thicker texture and a lot more taste.
Syrup made from strawberries and limes is one of this cocktail’s essential components. It’s the ideal component for aficionados of cocktails due to its incredibly strong flavour.
A thin layer of sparkling water is what gives the drink its ‘spritzer’ flavour. It should be added on top of the gin and strawberry mixture to create a gorgeous gradient appearance.
Lemon juice, triple sec, and simple syrup are the ingredients used to make a classic lemon drop. It’s spicy, tangy, and mouthwateringly good.
Similar to the spiked lemonade mentioned earlier, this variation is a little smoother and a lot more vibrant. Meyer lemons have a richer flavour overall since they are smaller and sweeter than regular lemons.
Everybody loves a frozen margarita, right? And for good reason, particularly when combined with a huge quantity of delicious, fresh strawberries.
This recipe calls for a frozen limeade solution, so you may flavour it and add ice without having to worry about it becoming diluted by using solely ice to keep it chilled.
Given that there are no specific guidelines for making a ‘smash’, it is one of the most adaptable cocktails available. It is really just a particular kind of drink made with alcohol, ice, and occasionally fruit.
You’ll begin with a light strawberry and lime base and then add soda water and gin. It will taste fantastic!

You’re going to adore this summer beverage if you enjoy the tequila’s flavours and effects as well as the brilliant, fruity colours and hues of tequila sunrises.
Orange juice and grenadine, which settles to the bottom to produce the sunrise appearance, are used in the traditional formula.
One of the only differences in this variation is the addition of strawberry puree.
This oddball little drink is equally rich, tangy, and effervescent, but the thyme also adds a hint of savoury flavour.
Limoncello is a fantastic liqueur that has a lot of depth and only requires a few shots. In order to prevent the lemon from overpowering the strawberries, if they aren’t particularly sweet, add some extra syrup.
A basic combination of gin, simple syrup, lemon, and club soda makes up the traditional Tom Collins. If you prefer drinks that are more sugary, you might not like this specific concoction.
To make a slightly sweeter, lighter flavour, this recipe uses lime juice for lemon, agave syrup for simple syrup, and plenty of fresh, juicy berries.
The classic martini is modified by the vodka and vermouth-based vodka martini. Compared to the traditional, which utilises gin, this vodka version is significantly less flowery and smoother.
Both flavours are really potent and require some getting used to. But if you add some luscious, ripe strawberries, your beverage will be considerably sweeter and fruitier.
Since it won’t overpower your taste receptors like tequila does, vodka works well in this cocktail. In this manner, each sip of prosecco will include both the sparkling wine’s sparkle and the sweet and flowery flavours.
You can always use Cointreau, which will offer you orange notes, instead of elderflower liqueur, which may be quite potent.
