With strawberry season, expect there to be an avalanche of ripe, juicy, red berries on its way. Surely four or five can find their way into the cocktail shaker to create our Strawberry Farm Cocktail!

Strawberry Farm Cocktail Recipe


1 part Vodka
1 part Fresh lime and lemon juice
1 part simple syrup
5 strawberries
3 sprigs of basil


  1. Juice approximately 3 limes and 2 lemons. Use a sharp knife to remove strips of zest with as little white pith as possible.
  2. Make the simple syrup by bringing one cup water and one cup sugar to a boil. Toss in 3 strips of lemon zest and 3 strips of lime zest. Stir for a minute and remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, muddle three strawberries and 1 sprig of basil. Add vodka, fresh juice, and simple syrup.  Shake.
  4. Pour over ice in a low glass, and garnish with basil, berries, and citrus.
