Now that summer has officially come to a close, it’s the perfect time to make the most of the fresh summer produce still lingering. I love blending a refreshing fruit smoothie, making a colorful salad, and baking fresh fruit tarts, but nothing is quite as indulgent as a fresh fruit cocktail.

Many summer drinks – or any drinks – are loaded with artificial flavors, sweeteners, and colors, but my favorite is sweetened solely with ripe, juicy strawberries. This cocktail — a blend of fresh fruit, vodka, rosé, and ice — is not only delicious, but also easy to make. Strawberries also boast tons of health benefits. Along with high levels of antioxidants, strawberries also pack a powerful punch of Vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium. Recent studies have also shown that strawberries may play a role in the prevention of heart disease and cancers. This cocktail is one that you can feel good drinking as the summer comes to a close!
