Strawberry Ginger Fizz from Zero Proof

Low FODMAP Strawberry Ginger Fizz

Strawberries and ginger? Yes? In a beverage? Why not? This festive, sparkling and easy-to-make beverage is brought to us by my friend Maureen Petrosky and excerpted from her book, ZERO PROOF drinks & more 100 Recipes for Mocktails & Low-Alcohol Cocktails. The flavors of strawberry, lime and ginger are about as refreshing as you can get!

  • 3 fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 ounce (15 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) ginger beer, chilled



  • Cocktail shaker, optional
  • Muddler, optional
  • Tall glass or wine glass


  1. In a cocktail shaker, use a muddler or wooden spoon to muddle the quartered strawberries, mint leaves and lime juice.
  2. Strain into a tall glass or wine glass half-filled with ice. Add ginger beer. Add strawberry slices and stir.

  3. Cut a small slit in candied ginger and place on rim of glass.


• If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can make this drink right in your glass. It will be more like a smash, though, with all the muddled fruit and herbs included. Whenever you muddle directly in a drinking vessel, choose a thick, sturdy one, ideally with a thick bottom. Mason jars work perfectly.
• Make a Blackberry Ginger Fizz or Blueberry Ginger Fizz instead. In Step 1, add 1⁄4 cup (60 ml) blackberries or blueberries to the muddle in place of the quartered strawberries. In Step 3, replace the sliced strawberry with a few blackberries or blueberries — just stir them in whole.

FODMAP Information

Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.

  • Ginger: Monash University has lab tested fresh ginger root and has determined it to be free of FODMAPs, making it one of our go-to no FODMAP foods.
  • Strawberries: This popular berry has been lab tested by both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly. Monash lab testing reports that no FODMAPs were detected in strawberries. They suggest 10 medium berries (150 g) as a serving. FODMAP Friendly gives strawberries a “pass” and pegs 10 medium berries at (140 g).

Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
