A squeeze of lime takes things up a notch for a lip-smackingly delicious cocktail that’s a picnic in a glass! Try this refreshingly sweet and herby combination when the weekend ahead guarantees sunshine – all you need to do is wheel out the BBQ and get serving for some serious summer vibes.
Strawberry Lime Vodka Smash
As far as easy summer cocktails go, this is the one you’ll want to make (and smash) again and again this summer. A Strawberry Lime Vodka Smash is tart, sweet and thirst-quenching, ideal for summer alfresco get-togethers on long warm days. An easy to make cocktail, it’s just a matter of muddling together fresh strawberries and zingy lime juice with drizzle of honey, adding smooth vodka and topping it up with sparkling water. Make it pretty with a sprig of mint and a few extra berries.
Strawberry Smash Cocktail
If you like the sound of the recipe for Strawberry Lime Vodka Smash above but prefer a sweeter less tart option, then omit the lime juice in your muddle for that oh so summery sip. A perfect picnic pleaser that can be made up in advance and bottled. Just leave out the sparkling water to top up in the park and add the pretty fizz too, as you pour.
Strawberry Prosecco Rossini Cocktail
If you like a Bellini Cocktail, try this pimped strawberry version called a Rossini. This will become your fave strawberry vodka cocktail recipe, ever! This bubbly drink was named after the famous Italian composer who’s known for composing a bubbly piece of music or two.

Garnish with a strawberry and switch off for the rest of the day!
