Spring is the perfect time to enjoy a strawberry cocktail! The days are longer, warmer and the perfect excuse to make a cocktail to enjoy outdoors in your favorite lawn chair. This Strawberry Shortcake Martini tastes just like the classic summer dessert. Perfect for sipping out of a martini glass.

Here’s a quick shopping list of ingredients you’ll need for this amazing strawberry cocktail:

Step 2: Fill a Cocktail Shaker with Ice and add the ingredients

Start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice, over half full. Pour in the cake vodka, RumChata or cream liqueur of your choice, the half and half, and the strawberry puree.

Pro-Tip: If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can use a quart-sized mason jar with a tight fitting lid.

Next, add the lid, making sure its secured tightly. Shake vigorously.

This cocktail will make two 8 oz. drinks, which is enough to fill 2 martini glasses. Add a strawberry to each glass for a pretty garnish.

This cocktail is the perfect drink for spring. This could be excellent Easter or Mother’s Day brunch drink or great for viewing the Kentucky Derby, should you have something other than a mint julep.
