This drink is perfect for a hot summer day with fresh strawberries and a hint of vanilla from the vanilla syrup. These simple ingredients combine with lemon juice and vodka or gin.

Strawberry Vanilla Collins

Yep, you can make this with gin (our preference) or vodka, whatever you prefer. Plus, you can control the level of sweetness to your preference as well in this Strawberry Vanilla cocktail.

Simply add the berries to a cocktail shaker with vanilla syrup and muddle the berries. Then, add lemon juice, gin and ice. Shake and double strain by using a fine mesh sieve into a tall highball glass with fresh ice. Finally, top with club soda and garnish! Try our Strawberry Coconut cocktail, too!

Tips & Tricks

  • Alcohol – you can switch up the alcohol. If you don’t want to use regular vodka, use strawberry vodka or vanilla vodka. If you use gin, we prefer a citrus gin like lemon or a floral gin like Brockman’s (our favorite in this) or Hendrick’s. Don’t use a London Dry, it dries up the drink too much and doesn’t mix well.
  • Vanilla Syrup – this is easy to make homemade, just combine 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and take off of heat. Add 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract or 1 scraped vanilla bean pod into the simple syrup. Let it sit and strain if need be (with the vanilla bean), and store in the fridge in a jar for up to 2 weeks. You can also use a dash of strawberry syrup if you don’t have any fresh berries.
