Tip #1: We used frozen strawberries from the freezer section of the grocery store, but feel free to wash, hull and freeze your own strawberries for fresh-picked flavor.

Tip #2: The key to keeping this drink nice and slushy is to use ice-cold vodka. We stuck ours in the freezer an hour before, but it's even better left to chill overnight.

Tip #3: Drink responsibly. As we can attest, it's hard to have just one of these delicious summer sips!
