Tried & True – Strawberry Lime Vodka Smash

This strawberry lime vodka smash cocktail from Recipe Runner is tried & true.

Refreshing and easy to make.
This one is on the sweeter side from the strawberries, so if you’re not into sweeter cocktails, steer clear.
We’ve made this a few times and it is one of our go-to summer cocktails.

We ended up using way more vodka than the recipe called for, just because we prefer our cocktails on the stronger side. The recipe was easy to multiply for larger groups.

If you’re not a vodka person, we also tried this one with whiskey instead of vodka, and it was really good.


4 ounces vodka
1 cup chopped strawberries
2 teaspoons honey
3 tablespoons lime juice
Soda water
Lime and strawberry slices and mint sprig for garnish (optional)


2 servings

In a cocktail shaker or measuring cup combine the strawberries, honey and lime juice. Use a muddler or the handle end of a wooden spoon to mash the berries and release their juices.

Strain the berry mixture into two glasses pressing the juice out of the berries. If you don’t want to strain it, just divide the mixture into two glasses. Pour 2 ounces of vodka into each glass and stir until combined.

Top with sparkling water to taste.
Garnish with sliced strawberries, lime and a sprig of mint if desired.
