One of the simplest ways to customize a basic drink recipe is to add flavor with infusions. You can play around with alcohol infusions, which can take some time. Or you can use flavored simple syrups for a much quicker flavor boost. A simple syrup is traditionally a syrup made with water and sugar. Usually in a 1:1 or 2:1 sugar to water ratio. Heat is the keep element as the water needs to be boiling so the sugar dissolves. There are plenty of articles out there that go into the science of how and why.
Frozen Peach Basil Daiquiri
Personally I get the basics, but I get excited about amping that syrup up with flavors. Like the basil simple syrup used in this Frozen Peach Basil Daiquiri drink recipe. I prefer a lighter syrup made with one part water to one part sugar for infusions. Too much sweetness can over power delicate flavors. Another fun variation is to use different types of sweeteners. Something like a cinnamon brown sugar syrup would be delicious drizzled over ice cream or in a creamy latte.
