The margarita pairs perfectly with fruit, and you'll fall in love with this drink's vibrant color and sweet tart flavor.
The most famous strawberry cocktail of them all: all hail the strawberry daiquiri! This rum cocktail also has a distinct 1990's resort vibe, but pleasantly so. Our version has pure berry flavor and is just sweet enough. One taste, and you’ll be singing its praises! If you'd like, whip up a little lime daiquiri as a festive topping: and it adds even more tangy flavor as it mixes in.
What’s better than a Mojito? A Strawberry Mojito! The classic ranks in our top greatest cocktails of all time. But how to make it even tastier? Add fresh berries to the mix! The sweet tart flavor of ripe strawberries only improves this classic. Muddling some fresh berries right into your drink makes for a deliciously vibrant drink that’s perfect for summer…or anytime.
When it comes to classic cocktails, usually the original is the best. But when it comes to mimosas… well, this strawberry mimosa cocktail might be even better! The classic mimosa stars orange juice and champagne: but why not add bright red strawberries to the mix? Pureeing fresh strawberries with the orange juice adds fruity berry notes to the flavor palate. It’s a stunning brunch cocktail that makes any occasion more festive…even if it’s just a celebration for yourself!

Serve it with a splash of sparkling water and a skewer of fruit, and it’s pretty darn perfect…we think.
Frosé is a mashup between a frozen cocktail and that quintessential summer wine...aka Frozen Rosé ! Most frose recipes are sickly sweet, but this one is truly perfect.

Want to detox with berries too? (Yep, we’re here for it!) The strawberry is by far the most popular fruit in smoothie recipes, and there are so many ways to use it. Here are a few more strawberry drinks to try:
Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of two glasses. Dip the edge of each rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use our Margarita Salt).
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until fully combined: you can blend until it’s an icy texture, or keep blending for a minute or so until it’s more liquid. Taste and add additional sweetener if desired. Pour into the glasses and serve.
*Easily doubles for 4 drinks (or triples, based on the size of your blender).
