Ted Allen's Fresh Strawberry Balsamic Basil Daiquiris

Most daiquiris are cloyingly sweet and filled with booze, but make your own for a much lighter version of this classic summer cocktail.

Nutrition Facts
A 2-ounce portion of frozen daiquiri mix (no alcohol) has 120 calories and more than 5 teaspoons of added sugar. The quality of the ingredients is another sticky issue – most bottled mixers are filled with artificial colors and high fructose corn syrup. Pour in the rum and it’s another 100-plus calories per shot. There are better options….

Virgin
Replace rum with pineapple – save hundreds of calories per serving.
Recipe: Virgin Daiquiri

Fresh Berries
Here’s a bright idea – use real berries! Punch up the flavor even more with a hint balsamic and basil.
Recipe: Strawberry Balsamic Basil Daiquiri (pictured above)

Portioned
This traditional recipe also uses fresh berries. It’s perfectly portioned with just under 160 calories per serving.
