  • Slice a few strawberries and toss them into your finished drink for something to enjoy once you’re done with it.
  • Take a strawberry and slice it down the center from the point towards the leaves and place it on the rim of the glass.
  • Slice the leaves off the top of a strawberry and set it floating on top of your finished drink.
  • Make a custom cocktail skewer using strawberries and your other favorite fruits.
  • Harvest some strawberry flowers (the precursor to the berry itself) and dry them out to set them into your next strawberry martini.
