Growing up, it was a real treat when my parents would let me order a strawberry daiquiri at a restaurant. (A non alcoholic one, of course!) Now that I’m a grown up (sometimes, haha!) I get to enjoy the same delicious drink, with booze!
For this daiquiri recipe, I added my own little spin with basil simple syrup. Simple syrup is easy to make by boiling a combination of half water and half sugar together until the sugar dissolves.
I love to make flavored simple syrup’s to add to cocktails. It’s as easy as adding an herb, vegetable or fruit to the simple syrup while it’s boiling. Strain the simple syrup at the end, then add it to your favorite cocktail.
I’ve made grilled jalapeno simple syrup to go in a Watermelon Margarita, it’s sweet, spicy and so delicious! I’ve also made mint simple syrup to add to this Frozen Coconut Mojito. So refreshing in a cocktail with that minty, fresh flavor!
The basil simple syrup in this cocktail adds just a hint of basil to this sweet strawberry daiquiri. After you whip up the simple syrup, all you have to do is toss all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and the cocktail is ready for sipping!

For those of you that follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen an Instagram story, or caught a Facebook Live recently, where I’ve been sharing all about the “Fixer Upper” I purchased with my boyfriend Kurt!
We did all of the demo ourselves and then spent the last month sitting around waiting for permits to be approved by the city of San Diego. Magically this week, it happened! The permits were approved and that means the remodel can begin. This definitely called for an impromptu celebration!
I grabbed a bottle of Tropicana Lemonade and made a super simple cocktail. Simple, but so delicious and definitely going in my happy hour regular rotation!
Mango, fresh squeezed orange and lime juice, tequila and triple sec are combined in this deliciously light & refreshing Frozen Mango Margarita Recipe!
On Friday, I hosted my last segment on CW6 San Diego. Unfortunately the station closed after over 60 years on the air. For the last four years, I’ve hosted dozens and dozens of segments on CW6 and loved every one of them!
Hosting a segment on their last day on air meant the world to me and I couldn’t think of a better way to send them off than with a deliciously refreshing Mango Margarita!
Over the years, we’ve drank mimosas, Moscow mules and martinis together on the show, so I only found it fitting that our last segment together would include a cocktail!
This delicious twist on a gin mule combines tart grapefruit juice with sweet sparkling wine for a refreshing cocktail that’s also so easy to make!
You know when you meet someone and you instantly want to be best friends with that person?! That’s exactly how I felt when I met my friend Laura!
She’s a fellow blogger at Distillerista.com and the owner of the only craft destination distillery in California, You & Yours Distilling Co. in downtown San Diego. Needless to say, she’s a boozy boss lady, which I love! In addition to dominating in the distillery world, she’s also the sweetest person ever and so much fun!

Ok, so let’s take a minute to talk about this coconut kick I’m on right now! Does anyone else go on kicks where they’re really loving one ingredient or cuisine or cooking method for like a month straight? Is that just a food blogger thing, or is it just me?!
Sometimes I’ll look at my upcoming recipe content calendar for the blog and all of the sudden realize that every recipe is in a bowl, or grilled, or has coconut in it, like this month! I guess we’ll just call this “The month of the coconut” on WhitneyBond.com! 😉
