5 Must Try Summer Strawberry Cocktail Recipes

A couple weeks ago I attended a strawberry farm tour which I had the pleasure of helping put together. The two-day event was designed to introduce influential food and nutrition bloggers to strawberry farmers for an up close and personal look at strawberry farming in California.

In addition to the great discussions and beautiful scenery, the food and beverages were delicious — and definitely worth sharing. The event took place on warm and sunny days along the beautiful coast at Pismo Beach, and chefs couldn’t have done a better job serving cocktails perfect for the occasion. If you plan to host any seaside gatherings, you might want to whip these beauties up!

As a bonus, a few of the lovely folks who attended the farm tour event have already shared their experiences, including Nik from A Brown Table, Tammilee from  Tammilee Tips, dietitian Jenna from Make Healthy Easy, and Kylie (also a dietitian) from ImmaEatThat. We invite you to take your own tour through their posts filled with photos and information you might find refreshing. Enjoy!
