Expert Tips

To make about 1 cup of strawberry puree, place about 1 lb fresh or frozen (thawed) strawberries in a blender. Cover; blend on high speed until pureed. Strain to remove seeds.

Using a chilled glass keeps the cocktail cold without diluting the drink. Place glasses in the freezer to chill quickly.
