Frozen drinks make a great summertime treat for backyard barbecues and rooftop parties, but many people forget that there are far more options than just frozen margaritas, daiquiris, and pina coladas. 101 Blender Drinks includes all the classics, but also shows you how to turn your favorite cocktails into icy cold, refreshing frozen delights-Cosmopolitans, sangrias, bellinis, and mojitos can all be converted to frozen treats. There's also plenty of creative, one-of-a-kind creations like Yuzu Cucumber Freeze or Guava Lava Passion.
But there are far more options than just drinks with alcohol. What about a cold frozen dessert like Frozen Oreo Cookie or Cool Caramel Flan? Frozen drinks are a great way to cool down during the summer heat. This book offers creative, refreshing options that go far beyond the classics.
