OK, I am here to admit I love the weekends, but who doesn’t?  While the week is a party on the radio, I am known to kick back a little during the weekend, have a few people over and DRINK!

Can you keep a secret?  I got up early today for one reason: It’s National Margarita Day! Oh, I started in pretty early today, but all to get ready for the show tonight.  Why do I always come up with good ideas when I’ve had a few?

Oh how I have waited for this day for the whole week I knew about it!  I mean, I don’t need a reason to drink, but I enjoy one!  Now, I have been known to make a pretty mean drink including a tasty margarita.  I’m gonna let you in on my secret recipe:


  • 1 cup hulled strawberries
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 large basil leaves
  • 8 ice cubes


  1. Combine the strawberries, tequila, orange-flavored liqueur, lemon juice, sugar, and basil leaves in a blender; mix on low until smooth. Add the ice and puree until the ice is crushed, 30 to 60 seconds.

Love, Coop
