    Everything in this slideshow

    • Strawberry Margarita

      Your next fiesta will be even sweeter when you spruce up classic margaritas with a generous helping of juicy strawberries. The tequila-strawberry mixture is poured over ice, not blended together, so you can make a batch to chill until you're ready to serve.

    • Mint-Strawberry Crush

      Fresh mint leaves add zip to a colorful strawberry drink that's made with cognac and lemon juice. A quick and easy simple syrup highlights the sweetness of the berries.

    • Strawberry Sangria

      Spend the evening sipping strawberry sangria at your next get-together. The berries slow-infuse with homemade strawberry syrup and white wine for an irresistible and sophisticated strawberry drink. Don't forget to add orange wedges for a pop of color.

      Editor's Tip: Patience is the key to delicious sangria. The fruit sweetens the wine as it stands, so the longer you let it chill, the better it will taste.

    • Strawberry Agua Fresca

      Aguas frescas are light, nonalcoholic drinks popular in Mexico and Central America. Our version is infused with honey, strained strawberry puree, and fresh-squeezed lime juice. Drop a whole strawberry in each glass for a pretty finishing touch.

    • Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

      Fresh watermelon adds an extra hint of sweetness to a delicious strawberry drink that's perfect for a party or a simple sunny-day treat. Lemon, strawberry, and watermelon slices float on top for a pretty fruit garnish.

    • Summerberry Cooler

      Juicy strawberries blend with raspberries and apple juice for smooth fruit flavor, and a splash of diet lemon-lime soda adds fizz. With just 49 calories per serving, this is one berry spritzer you can feel good about.

    • Protein-Packed Smoothies

      Starting the day with a strawberry smoothie is a great way to get in your servings of fruit and dairy, and this recipe has the added advantage of a 10-gram protein boost. We love the combination of fresh strawberries, fat-free yogurt, bananas, and peanut butter.

    • White Strawberry Sangria

      A generous splash of strawberry schnapps adds extra berry flavor to this simple four-ingredient sangria. The wine-soaked fruit makes a delicious treat after you've finished a glass (or two).

    • Strawberry Lemonade

      Skip the soda at your next get-together and whip up a pitcher of tangy homemade strawberry lemonade instead. The fresh berries add just the right amount of sweetness to tart lemon juice, and we love the way it looks when served in clear glasses.
