Baileys Strawberries and Cream Vodka Martini makes a fabulous Spring and Summer cocktail.
Whipped cream Vodka and almond orgeat enhance the Strawberries and cream flavors. This sweet drink is so delicious.
Ok I admit it. They got me with that gorgeous bottle. I actually cannot go past a really cool liquor bottle without thinking long and hard about bringing it home.
Fortunately Baileys liqueurs are all delicious AND have lovely limited edition bottles to show off in my liquor cabinet. This strawberry cream flavor is also a beauty in bottle and flavor. Enjoy!
if you loved strawberry milk as a child you will enjoy Bailey strawberry and cream. We twisted this childhood flavor favorite a bit.
The added creaminess and blanched almond flavor brings it to adult level tastebuds.
The result is so good! Grown up strawberry milk. But BETTER.

Baileys Strawberries and Cream Cocktail Recipe:
This a drink I will serve to myself on a hot day or I’ll serve it at my girls nights (whenever they happen again). Lol. Fun fact.
Our mom’s group calls our monthly girls night a book club. So our kids won’t know what we are really doing. 🙂 Which is taking a mom break and enjoying grown ups with NO kids in the middle of it.
So this is a good book club refreshment. Grown up style.
Just leave that gorgeous bottle out on the counter. Your bookworms friends will be dying to try it!
If you collect beautiful liquor bottles you know the Bailey’s is a limited edition. It comes out once a year in March or April. I found it at BevMo. Most grocery stores carry it in season.
- Baileys Strawberries and Cream Liqueur
- Smirnoff Whipped Cream Vodka
- Almond flavored orgeat syrup.
The whipped cream vodka and almond syrup should be available all year round.
TIP: DO chill the glass at least 15 to 30 minutes in the fridge before building this drink. In the hot summer days a chilled glass will help keep your drink cool a bit longer.
Quick Visual Guide:
Here’s a step by step walkthrough for your yummy strawberries and cream cocktail. Please Also watch our video for a complete recipe demonstration.
You’ll want to wash and dry a fresh ripe strawberry. Cut it from the narrow point about a third of the way up and set the berry on the side of your glass. Simple and elegant.
Add a sprig of fresh mint to brighten the flavor and give your glass a hint of summertime color.
More Garnish Ideas:
- Roll your damp strawberry in sugar
- Rim the lip of your glass (works best with a stemmed martini glass) with sugar.
- Set your strawberries on a long pick. This works great when you can’t find a really large fresh berry. You can cut the strawberries into pieces and use the mint in layers on the pick. This is less formal and cute!
Your Printable Recipe Card:
A beautiful and simple sweet cocktail. Strawberries and cream vodka cocktail is just right for summertime girls night or a delicious light drink by the pool.
- 2 oz. Baileys Strawberry and Cream
- 1-1/2 oz. whipped cream vodka
- 1/2 oz. almond simple syrup (we use Torani)
- ice as needed
Chill your glass ahead of time for at least 15 minutes to keep the drink chilled longer at serving.
Make The Cocktail:
- Fill your cocktail shaker 1/2 full of ice.
- Measure and pour the Baileys, vodka and simple syrup into the shaker.
- Seal the shaker and Shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds until the shaker is very cold.
- Strain the chilled and shaken cocktail into a martini glass.
Garnish with a fresh strawberry on the side of the glass and a sprig of mint.
More Garnish Ideas:
- Sugar the strawberry by dipping it in water, letting it dry enough so there are no drips. Now roll the fresh strawberry in granulated sugar.
- Use a long pick to skewer your strawberry if it's too small to cut and attach to the glass side. Add your mint sprig on the pick as well and put the pick over the glass top or just set it straight down point first in your glass.
- Use a stemless martini glass for a more informal look.
