Nothing cools down a hot summer day like an icy beverage straight from the blender. Whether you're lounging at the pool or barbecuing in the backyard, the perfect cold concoction can turn any summer day into a celebration.
Frozen daiquiris and margaritas are par for the course, but there's so much more you can do with your blender. In 101 Blender Drinks, Kim Haasarud, the Liquid Chef, provides a bevy of sophisticated and fun ideas for mixing up some icy refreshment. All the classics are included, but why not try some new creations? Get your daily dose of fruit with a Papaya Zinger. Or try a Jasmine Peach Bellini made with Prosecco and jasmine tea syrup. For something a little less sweet but just as refreshing, blend up a Pimm's Freeze with cucumber, strawberry, and Pimm's No. 1.
You can also adapt your favorite drinks and cocktails for the blender—cosmopolitans, mojitos, and sangrias are perfect when mixed with ice. There are plenty of alcohol-free options, and you can even break out of the dessert doldrums with a Frozen Oreo Cookie drink or a Cool Caramel Flan.
There's almost no limit to what your blender can do. With imagination and plenty of ice, 101 Blender Drinks will keep your summer get-togethers fun and refreshing.
From the Back Cover
"When people hear 'blender drink' or 'frozen drink,' they most probably think of sipping a tall, cool one while sitting on a beach, or maybe a morning smoothie. But with the mixology movement happening across the United States, along with raised awareness of local ingredients, the number of various combinations for frozen drinks is limitless."
