I’m still out here in Utah, but popping in today to share one of my favorite strawberry vodka drinks (that can also be made as a mocktail).

Raise your hand if you like summer strawberry cocktails?

As you know, I just finished up the Ogden Marathon and I earned a BQ time!

For now, Ed and I are spending a few more days exploring Salt Lake City and loving the Salt Lake City Eats and drinks.

Speaking of drinks, I’m kind of a craft cocktail snob. I love them.

I hate paying $12 at a bar for them, but I love them a strawberry fizzy drink too much to ignore it.

The idea of using local liquor, fresh muddled fruit/veggies, housemade ginger beer, syrups, and toppings gets me all giddy for this strawberry summer cocktail.

This is what this strawberry fizz is all about – but I’ve substituted my beloved ginger beer for prosecco. 

Anything strawberry prosecco is a combination to write home about – let me tell you.

For this month’s Recipe Redux, we were challenged to make our own cocktail.

Though I’m a strict cocktail lover, I’m really picky and don’t really ever make them at home.

But, I figured for the sake of my wallet, I should learn how to make a go-to at home.

Plus, I thought it was fun to experiment with some of the fruit I had on hand.

Since we’re loving summer strawberries, a strawberry vodka cocktail it was.

I figured a prosecco and strawberry cocktail with some mint and lime would be a winner. 

It’s a great night-in option that we love to pair with some appetizers, like zucchini and sweet potato fritters, or a vegan couscous salad.

Strawberry Mint Lime Cocktail Ingredients

Strawberry cocktails are always delicious, but this fun twist brings this strawberry mint cocktail to a new level.

  • strawberries
  • mint leaves
  • sugar
  • crushed ice
  • vodka
  • club soda
  • prosecco
  • lime juice
  • muddler (this really helps add small pieces of the mint and berry to each sip!)

I really recommend you crush your ice.

To do so, I took our regular sized ice cubes, put them in a ziplock bag, put a cloth around it, and went on the back porch and smashed it up.

I like those smaller ice cubes much better.

They allow you to get the right amount of taste, flavor and beverage in, rather than having your strawberry vodka cocktail be dominated by large ice cubes.

The muddler is essential, too!

All yummy things separate, and even more delectable when mixed together.

The Most Refreshing Mint Strawberry Cocktail

If I’m not in the mood for a moscow mule, I’ll order a fruity drink, some sort of mint lime cocktail, or mint cucumber.

I love strawberry alcoholic drinks and fruity mixed drinks with vodka, and I absolutely adore the subtle addition of mint.

A strawberry and mint cocktail is light, yet full of flavor. 

For pairing, I usually prefer vodka or gin – I just don’t enjoy the darker alcohols as much.

Vodka fizz had a good sound to it, plus I love my summer vodka drinks. Strawberry and prosecco is also a classic combination.

This summer vodka cocktail is super refreshing. It’s not overly sweet, yet certainly not flat. Prosecco and vodka cocktails seem to have a nice balance of fizz and being refined. 

Plus, strawberry and mint are two of my favorite flavors (remember this strawberry mint quinoa breakfast bowl??), so you know we’re bound for goodness there.

Also, if alcohol isn’t your thing or you can’t drink it right now or you just want more of a mocktail, then you can just leave out the alcohol and add more club soda or seltzer water. 

You’ll still be left with a super refreshing strawberry fizz beverage for hydration. 

What to Pair with Strawberry Fizz

We love to pull out the apps, like a cheese and charcuterie board with some fruit and crackers.

If you want a heavier meal, I’d recommend these sweet potato turkey burgers, sweet potato spaghetti or even this turkey taco quinoa skillet.

  1. Delicious cocktail! However don’t follow these instructions!! Pour the club soda and Prosecco into the drink AFTER you’ve shaken the other ingredients or else to ur shaker will explode and your drink will be flat.

  2. Flavored sparkling water and vodka is my go-to summer drink.. this is next level! I am thinking this long weekend might just be warm enough to give this a try!

  3. I’ve never made or drank a cocktail, but it does look refreshing. 🙂 I love the flavors of strawberry and mint, but I’m not sure I’ve had them together. I bet it would make a really refreshing lemonade flavor too.

  4. Mmmm this does scream refreshing. This makes me want to get all fancy and host an outdoor cocktail party.

    PS I found a strawberry basil lime scone the other day and thought of you.

  5. This looks so refreshing and perfect for summer! I am a whiskey girl, but I basically love any craft cocktail. Agreed on the price though – they’re typically $15 out here! We’ll have to make more at home this summer. Pinning this to try!

    Congrats on the marathon and Boston qualifying time!!!
