Cool summer drink for the ladies!!

I ran across this drink today and omg it looks sooo delicious! I am always looking for new recipes and i rarely find ones that catch my eye, so when i spotted this one I just had to share :) Now I am not much of an alcohol drinker unless it is sweet LOL. This seems like it would be so refreshing on a hot summer day, who doesn't like strawberries?? yummm
