Frozen Drinks to Quench our Thirst
Why is it cool: Obviously a blender serves all types of purposes and can be used around the year for various dishes and cuisines, but it holds a special place in my heart during the summer months. There is nothing better during a scorching summer day then a frozen drink. Alcoholized or not, the sweetness of the drink revs you up after hours in the sun and the ice cools you down to create a perfect summer buzz. It is a must-have for your kitchen and essential for cooling down during those blazing hot summer days.
Where can I get one: You can get a blender pretty much anywhere, well not really but you know what I mean. In Montreal, I think Canadian Tire has the most competitive prices.
How much? Prices vary according to the quality, brand name and store of purchase.
