Strawberry Lemonade Vodka is a refreshing, naturally sweetened cocktail that is quick and easy to make! You’ll love the fresh strawberry, tart lemonade, and crisp vodka flavor in this single serving drink.
With strawberry lemonade sitting around, we might as well make strawberry lemonade vodka, right?
While you could certainly just add vodka straight to my pitcher of strawberry lemonade, chances are you don’t have that many occasions where you’re going to be drinking a whole pitcher’s worth of cocktails.
I decided instead to base this recipe off my single serving strawberry lemonade, which is naturally sweetened (which is my favorite way to enjoy cocktails) and easy to pull together in just minutes.
A strawberry cocktail is perfect for sunny days, or days you just wish were sunny! It’s tart and sweet with just the right amount of alcohol.

Tips for the best vodka cocktail
- I always keep my vodka in the freezer. It helps improve the taste!
- Add the vodka at the end once the mixture has been chilled by the cold water, you don’t want it hot!
- Be sure to strain the strawberry mash through a fine mesh strainer so you don’t get debris in your cocktail
