Cocktail of the Month: Spiked Strawberry Beer Lemonade

Nothing says "Spring is here!" like a nice, refreshing, thirst-quenching cocktail. Strawberry cocktails are good any day of the week in my book, so this month I am bringing you a recipe for a cocktail that both men or women would enjoy: Spiked Strawberry Beer Lemonade.


  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (from about 2 large lemons)
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 bottles (12 ounces each) blonde or pale ale
  • 6 oz. vodka
  • Frozen strawberries, for chilling


  1. Add the berries, sugar, lemon juice, water, and vodka to a pitcher.
  2. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes, allowing the sugar to dissolve.
  3. Add the beer and frozen strawberries (instead of ice) and stir gently to combine.
  4. Add additional lemon juice or sugar to taste and use leftover strawberries to garnish.

Sounds delicious, right? Drink up!
