Fresh Strawberry Cocktail

Thirsty Thursday, comin’ at ya!

So I had this crazy idea.  This probably doesn’t shock you because it happens from time to time.  Remember the savory whipped cream?!  Man that stuff is good though, you should check it out of you haven’t!

Ok, so crazy idea, I was wondering if there was a way to make a fresh juice cocktail, without an actual juicer.  I had some strawberries that were sort of starting to go.  Which in the world of strawberries seems to happen in like 12.2 hours.  You know?

I also love when cocktail have fresh juice, so I thought, ok, we can make this happen, right?  Well apparently, right.  You guys, it’s shockingly easy.  No offense to the juicer companies, but I am keeping my money.  Plus the clean up of this was soooooo much easier!  Have you guys ever used and cleaned a juicer, yikes!  That thing was a messy pain.
