Gorgeous, sweet strawberries are EVERYWHERE! At least, that’s the case here in Northern California. If it’s not true where you live, sorry for this completely selfish roundup of awesome cocktails made with fresh strawberries. I didn’t mean to rub it in your face. (Maybe try frozen so you can play along at home?)
Bloodhound Cocktail ~ We like to think that fresh fruit in cocktails is a modern thing, but this recipe has been around since the 1920s. Gin, sweet and dry vermouth, with fresh strawberries? Timeless.
Strawberry Mint Julep ~ This has the added fun of making strawberry-infused bourbon for your julep. However, I’m sure that a Mint Julep made with regular bourbon with some fresh berries added would also be fantastic.
Balsamic Strawberry Smash ~ Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are a great match, but I never would have thought they’d go so well with bourbon. Well, they do … and this cocktail is proof.
Strawberry Rosemary Sangria ~ If it’s party time, sangria is a good way to go. This one has some interesting pairings and is great for warm weather.
Strawberry Margaritas ~ No need to whip out the blender for this one. It’s the classic and simple Margarita with strawberries.
Strawberry Basil Mojito ~Strawberry and basil is one of my favorite flavor combinations, therefore this Mojito is my go-to drink when it’s sunny.
