How to Blend the Perfect (Frozen) Boozy Beverage
Date Posted: July 28, 2014
When the sun is blazing and you’re blistering hot, a refreshing frozen beverage may be just what you need to complement your e cigarette.
As you enjoy some hard-earned time off, puffing on your e cigarette and lounging around on a lazy summer afternoon, why not sip on a frozen cocktail? Mix it yourself for a refreshing, homemade adult refreshment.
Making a frozen drink can be easier than mixing e-liquid for a new e cigarette flavor – just pour and mix! Check out some of our tips, below, and you’ll be blending boozy beverages in no time…
1. Don’t use big chunks of ice; they could damage your blender. Instead, use chips or crushed ice. You can easily make your own crushed ice with a mallet and a plastic bag. Just fill a gallon freezer bag halfway with ice and pound away with the mallet until you’ve annihilated the cubes, transforming them into tiny shards of frozen water – the perfect form of ice for your perfect frozen cocktail.
2. Figure out whether you prefer fresh fruit or frozen. Fresh fruit will give your drink a smoother texture while frozen fruit lets you use less ice. Both are awesome. Squeeze some fresh lemon and/or lime juice into your mix for an extra boost of tropical flavor. What’s a frozen beverage without fruit?
3. Add your ingredients to the blender in order of consistency, from thinnest to thickest; liquids first (rum, anyone?), then fruits – ice goes in last.
4. Check the texture of your mix frequently: wait for the blades to completely stop spinning, open the lid of the blender and stir. Keep blending if you notice chunks of fruit and ice; add more ice or frozen fruit if your mix is too thin. You should end up with a mix that slightly sticks to the side of the blender, but it shouldn’t be so thick that any needs to be removed with a spoon.
5. Don’t rush the blending process – giving it enough time will be worth it when you taste the whipped, airy and smooth consistency of your creation… If you’re impatient, just have a vape session with your ecig as you mix.
6. Garnish! Garnish! Garnish!
7. Serve your frozen booze in chilled glasses to slow down the inevitable melting process.
8. Experience a piña colada two ways. Mix it as a cocktail in a blender and then enjoy our new limited-edition flavor, Piña Colada, in your electronic cigarette. Delicious.
9. Experiment with different recipes and enjoy complementing flavors in your ecigarettes (tell us your favorites!).
