Celebrate delicious summer fruits with this fun drink! Made with simple ingredients and fresh fruit, this Strawberry Mocktail with Pineapple is the perfect drink for sipping on hot summer days.
Fancy drinks like this strawberry mocktail are ideal for backyard BBQs, bridal showers, a baby shower, and so many other special occasions. Offering both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks is a great way to ensure all of you guests can enjoy tasty drinks.
A non-alcoholic drink that looks like its alcoholic counterparts is the goal of every mocktail I make. There are a lot of reasons people choose not to drink and many of those are very personal. Creating mocktails that are equally as fancy as cocktails means people can mix and mingle without giving a second thought to what’s in their glass, keeping the awkward conversations at bay.
This virgin cocktail is much more than a strawberry mocktail spritzer. With fresh herbs, fresh fruit, and homemade simple syrup shaken up in a cocktail shaker, it's full of flavor and the perfect sip for those who love fruity drinks.
How to Make a Strawberry Mocktail with Pineapple
Place strawberry, mint leaves, and orange juice In a cocktail shaker.
Muddle until the strawberry is crushed and looks like strawberry puree.
Fill the cocktail shaker half full with ice cubes. Shake well.
Double strain through a fine mesh strainer into a martini glass.
Top with sparkling water or soda water.
Garnish with a sprig of mint and/or a slice of strawberry.
- Make your syrup ahead of time. You want your simple syrup to be completely cold when you use it, so be sure to make it a day or two early and store it in a glass, airtight container in the refrigerator.
- Use frozen strawberries if needed. While fresh ingredients are always the best in drinks, if you don’t have any fresh strawberries on hand just thaw a frozen berry to use in this recipe.
- Squeeze an orange for this drink. Fresh juice makes a big difference in your mocktails.

I like what elderflower water adds to this drink, but if you don’t have any, simply leave it out. The mocktail will still be delicious.
