Strawberry Vodka Cocktail Recipe

A Berry Tempting Strawberry Vodka Cocktail

If you love strawberries, you'll definitely be a fan of this easy sipper. I combined vodka with lemon juice, muddled strawberries, and simple syrup. The whole thing is shaken and then strained into a chilled glass.

It's a seasonal, slightly girlie drink that's delightfully balanced and ends up neither too sweet nor too potent. This strawberry vodka cocktail is just the thing to kick-start your weekend, so cheers! Grab a glass and get the recipe.
