The 'Summer Sixteen' strawberry cocktail by lifestyle and food blog She Knows references topical events both with the current season and rapper Drake's song by the same name that celebrates the summer. The drink recreates the essence of hot weather days with a drink filled with tropical fruit.

The 'Summer Sixteen' song by Drake discusses the temporality of this specific summer and the Strawberry 'Summer Sixteen' Cocktail utilizes the same pastel pink branding of the track in the aesthetic of the beverage. The drink contains fresh strawberries and simple syrup contrasted with the tart taste of lime and ginger. Coconut milk is added to create a creamy base and pastel hue while mezcal adds a decadent aroma, ideal for hot days.

The drink can also be enjoyed blended.
