Frequently asked questions

What kind of alcohol goes well with strawberries?

Strawberries pair beautifully with a variety of liquors! Lighter options like vodka, tequila, and white rum create refreshing drinks. Gin adds herbal notes. Sparkling wine or champagne add a festive touch.

Do I need fresh or frozen strawberries for cocktails?

Both can work! Fresh strawberries offer the best flavor, but frozen strawberries can be a convenient option and are used in drinks like the strawberry daiquiri and strawberry margarita.

Are there any non-alcoholic strawberry cocktails?

Blend fresh or frozen strawberries with sparkling water, club soda, or even coconut water for a refreshing mocktail. Muddling strawberries with fresh herbs like mint or basil creates a unique and flavorful non-alcoholic drink. Or, try our virgin strawberry daiquiri!

This strawberry margarita is cool, icy, tangy, and so refreshing! This fruity spin on the classic cocktail is an easy alcoholic drink using frozen berries.


  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) tequila*
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) Cointreau
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) fresh lime juice
  • 1 ½ cups frozen whole strawberries (fresh work too!)
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup, agave syrup, or maple syrup
  • 1 cup ice
  • Kosher salt or margarita salt, for serving


  1. 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 margarita salt).
  2. 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).
