I think my favorite summer flavor is strawberry, and this strawberry coconut mocktail is a great way to get my favorite flavor fix, and you will love it too.
Soda is the perfect way to add a bubbly touch to this drink recipe. Trust me when I say that this recipe is so yummy and refreshing. If you like less bubbles add less soda and vice versa.
And can we please talk about the super delicious flavor combo? I mean strawberry and coconut is a match made in heaven I’m completely sure of that! You get all the citrusy berry punch and then all the tropical calm coconut twist combined into one drink. Add all the ice that you want and you just got yourself a powerful thirst quenching party starter mocktail.
For the berries on the Strawberry Coconut Mocktail, I used frozen ones, but I have also made this recipe with fresh ones and the result was just as good. And for the coconut, I used some coconut water that I bought from my local supermarket (you can find it in either the health food aisle or the ethnic aisle) and then just mixed everything in a blender.
Then comes decoration time! To decorate the Strawberry Coconut Mocktail you just need a couple of strawberry slices, some coconut flakes and a pretty straw. It’s like having a beach vacation without going out of your house.
Tips for the best Strawberry Coconut Mocktail
This strawberry mocktail recipe is so simple but there are a few ways to make it even better.
- Make a simple syrup with equal parts coconut water and sugar to help the sugar blend more easily into the drink. You may need to adjust your measurements in the mocktail to get the level of sweetness you prefer.
- Use frozen strawberries instead of ice so that the mocktail is less diluted as it warms.
Why You’ll Love This Mocktail
There’s so much to love about this fruity non-alcoholic drink.
- Refreshing – This cold drink is perfect for a hot day.

- Versatile – These are as fun to serve at a cookout as they are for special occasions that call for fancy drinks.
How to Serve a Strawberry Coconut Mocktail
While we like to serve this virgin cocktail in stemless wine glasses, you can also pour them into tall glasses (like a highball glass) or any pretty glasses you may have. If you want to add some lime flavor for a strawberry margarita mocktail, you could use a margarita glass, too.
This mocktail, with its simple ingredients, is so delicious as it is. But as with any good mocktail, you can experiment to make it your own signature drink.
- Citrus – Instead of lemon juice, try fresh lime juice — add some fresh mint leaves, too, to make a strawberry mojito mocktail. You can also increase the lemon (or add lemon zest) to make a strawberry lemonade.
- Berries – Instead of frozen strawberries, you can use fresh strawberries or a strawberry puree. You may need to add ice cubes to the blender to get the same consistency.
- Soda – Swap out the club soda for a lemon-lime sparkling water or soda. You can also use tonic water or, for a unique flavor, ginger beer.
- Garnish – In addition to (or instead of) strawberry and coconut flakes, decorate with lemon slices, a lime wedge or lime slices, fresh basil leaves, or a sprig of mint. Or, if you’re feeling tropical or festive, add a cocktail umbrella.
- Sweetness – If you prefer a sweeter drink, add more white sugar, agave syrup or even some maple syrup. You can also try using a strawberry syrup (or extract) or strawberry juice if you have it handy.
