Save

If you enjoy the taste of a good martini, you might like this new twist on an old favorite. Strawberries add a sweet flavor to the old favorite, and give it a lovely reddish hue. Strawberry martinis are a refreshing summertime drink.

Things You'll Need

  • Sugar
  • Fresh, ripe strawberries
  • Strawberry syrup
  • Strawberry vodka
  • Martini glasses
  • Wooden spoon
  • Shaker
  • Ice
  • Chill the martini glasses by putting them in the freezer. If you prefer, you can also rim them with sugar. To rim a glass for strawberry martinis, slice a very ripe strawberry and rub it around the rim of the martini glass. The rim of the glass should be barely coated with strawberry juice. Dip the glass in a bowl of sugar.

  • Put a few fresh strawberries in a shaker, and mash them with a wooden spoon.

  • Put some ice in the shaker and pour in the desired amount of strawberry vodka, a squirt of strawberry syrup and about a teaspoon of sugar, depending on the level of sweetness you prefer.

  • Shake the strawberry martini until it's well mixed, about 20 seconds.

  • Pour the strawberry martini into the prepared glasses, garnish each glass with a fresh strawberry, and serve.

Tips & Warnings

  • Garnish the strawberry martini with a sprig of fresh rosemary for a slightly different flavor and a mouthwatering aroma.
  • To give the strawberry martini a delicious tang, add a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice or lime juice.
  • Be sure to select very ripe strawberries. The strawberry martini will be sweeter, and will have a deeper red tint.
