An icy summer treat, with summer flavors that we made into an adult beverage, this strawberry cocktail is perfect!
We tend to try to make cocktails featuring ingredients that are in season. While cruising the aisles of the grocery store looking for inspiration, we found a nice batch of fresh strawberries which are typically fantastic in summer and inspired images of strawberry desserts and drinks. We thought a nice strawberry cocktail would be perfect!
Combining creamy coconut milk, sweet strawberries and whipped cream vodka, this drink is perfect for sipping on the deck for a girls night out or as a sweet night cap. Easy to make, the base strawberry syrup is also wonderful for breakfast or as a topping for ice cream!
