Description

Since I was a kid, I’ve had to refrain from eating 1,000 pounds of chocolate covered strawberries on Valentine’s Day in fear of the stomachache that would shortly follow. How I wish I had this drink to curb my craving for a dairy-free alternative!


Ingredients

Scale

For rim:

  • 56 organic freeze-dried strawberry pieces, crushed into a fine powder
  • Organic lime wedge

For mocktail:

Garnish:

  • 1 organic strawberry cut into a heart shape

Instructions

  1. First, you’re going to make the rim for your mocktail. Crush your freeze-dried strawberries until they turn into a fine powder. It’s fine if you still have a few small strawberry chunks.
  2. Take your lime wedge and run it around the rim of your martini or coupe glass. Then roll your glass around in your crushed freeze-dried strawberries.
  3. Next, put 3 ice cubes into a cocktail shaker or mason jar.
  4. Add the almond milk, cocoa powder, and strawberry simple syrup to your shaker of choice.
  5. Shake for 30 seconds.
  6. Strain and pour into your prepared martini glass.
  7. Skewer your strawberry garnish and place in your mocktail. Enjoy! 🙂

Notes

If you want to turn this recipe into an actual martini, substitute 1 oz. of your almond milk with 1 oz. of vodka.
