Fresh Strawberries

Fresh strawberries are the heart and soul of this drink, lending a sweet, fruity essence. Less strawberries? You might miss out on that garden-fresh zing. More? Could be a smoothie in disguise! We're not here to judge, but balance is key.

Lemon Juice

This citrus gem adds brightness and a touch of acidity, which helps balance the sweetness of the strawberries and syrup. No lemon juice? You might find yourself in a sticky, too-sweet situation. An alternative might be lime juice, adding a tropical twist.

Mary Mitkina

Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is the sweet whisper that rounds out the tart edges of the lemon. Without it, things could get a little too pucker-worthy. If you swap it out for honey, you're on a one-way trip to Flavortown with a different, more complex sweetness.

Emma Rose


Vodka is the chameleon of the liquor world; it adds the 'kick' without overpowering the fruity symphony. Too little vodka, and it's a child's punch; too much, and you're partying with the Russian ballet. Choose a flavored vodka, and suddenly you're adding a new dimension to your cocktail cosmos.

Alex Green

Club Soda

Club soda brings the fizz, lifting the drink to a bubbly nirvana. Without it, you might as well call it a 'Strawberry Field'. Looking for a twist? Tonic water can bring in a bitter edge for a more grown-up vibe.

Mary Mitkina


Ice, ice baby—it's the cool factor. It chills the drink, yes, but also slightly dilutes it for a well-blended flavor experience. No ice? Prepare for a bold, undiluted flavor punch to the taste buds.

Emma Rose

Mint Leaves

Mint is the secret garden fairy, a fresh touch that plays so nicely with sweet berries. Forget the mint, and you miss out on that whisper of cool herbaceousness. Basil could be a substitute, making it more of an Italian affair.

Alex Green

Garnish: 1 Strawberry

The garnish is both a visual treat and a tasty snack for when you hit the bottom of your glass. No garnish? It's like going to a party and forgetting to wear your shoes; you're missing that final touch.

The basic composition of simple syrup is relatively straightforward – a 1:1 ratio of sugar and water. This mixture is heated until the sugar dissolves, resulting in a clear, sweet syrup.

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Learn everything on how to shake

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.

Insert the spoon into the glass until it touches the bottom. Keep the back of the spoon against the inside wall of the glass, and stir in a smooth, circular motion. The goal is to swirl the ice and ingredients together without churning or splashing.
