You’re not invited to belly up to this bar. But, you can sign up for our Herbal Happy Hour program. That’s because it includes mocktails (no booze drinks) as well as cocktails for the big kids.
Psst! You’ll get a free recipe download when you sign up for the waitlist too.
So, how do you make this strawberry cocktail anyway?
Okay, now that all the kids are gone, let’s make some drinks. And, if you having made your own berry infused booze, you can probably buy some strawberry vodka somewhere. But, no way is it going to be as great as DIYing your own with berries fresh from your garden.
And, for those of you who are accustomed to drinking simple-syrup or other sugar-infused cocktails, get ready for something lighter and more subtle but still rich in berry flavor. But, once you’ve already gotten off the sugar, your taste buds are going to zing when hit with these flavors.
Alrighty everyone, get out your shakers, haul out your muddlers & get ready to taste your homemade berry booze infusions in one of our favorite summer herbal strawberry vodka cocktails!

Strasilberry Fizz Strawberry Cocktail Print
(makes two drinks)
- 4 shots strawberry vodka
- 4-6 fresh stevia leaves (or 1/16 t. powdered stevia – too much will ruin things, so go easy on the stevia!)
- 6-8 fresh basil leaves, plus a few pretty ones for garnish (optional)
- club soda
- fresh strawberries for garnish (optional)
Fill two Collins glasses about 1/3 full with ice. Set aside.
Roughly tear stevia and basil leaves. Place in cocktail shaker with several ice cubes. Smash together with muddler until leaves are tiny flecks.(If you want to infuse your drink with even more strawberry flavor or sweetness, smash a few fresh berries when you muddle the herbs.)
Pour in vodka. Cover shaker & shake vigorously.
Divide liquid between the two Collins glasses. Top with soda. Stir. Garnish with strawberry and basil.
The green herbs may dilute the deep pink of your strawberry infusion, but it’ll still taste great. Be sure to inhale the aroma before you sip to truly appreciate how beautifully your homegrown strawberries infused the vodka and how wonderfully it pairs with the basil.
