Blend in the New Year with Hamilton Beach Commercial
By Lee Davis, CFSP
New Year’s Eve is just a few days away and I was thinking about how to perk up a traditional New Year’s Eve party with a specialty beverage. Blender drinks are always a fun way to get a party going. Even devoted beer and wine drinkers will set aside their preferred libations long enough to sample a featured blender drink if the host offers it up as a party special. But I couldn’t figure out how to combine the appeal of a blender drink with the time-honored tradition of serving Champagne to ring in the New Year?
I own a Hamilton Beach Rio™ bar blender, so I called my friends at Hamilton Beach Commercial for advice. Within minutes I had an answer: Cazuela en Champagne. It’s an easy and versatile drink recipe. Simply puree your choice of fruits and/or berries in your blender, adding powdered sugar to taste, then chill. Come party time, pour some the puree into a glass and top with Champagne, sparkling wine, or non-alcoholic sparkling cider. You can find the official recipe in the “Recipes” section of the Hamilton Beach Commercial Blog. While your there, check out these other blender recipes I found:
