Blender drinks are one of my favourite things about summertime and warm weather. With a blender, fruit, and ice you have almost limitless options of combinations, flavours, mocktails and cocktails. While I anxiously await summer fruit, I’ve created an Orange Grapefruit Margarita that tastes delicious anytime of year and utilizes the functions of the BrevilleHemisphere® Twist Blender.
The BrevilleHemisphere® Twist Blender has lots of cool features to make blending a breeze. It is a little powerhouse boasting it’s 450W blender with central blades that crush and chop for velvety cocktails. It operates on electronic 4 speed functions and pulse ensure the RPM speed is maintained for consistent results every time. The blade design and high torque motor delivers great results from smoothies to dips, and purees to desserts. TheBrevilleHemisphere® Twist combes the functionality of a powerful blender with some food processing tasks for versatility and convenience. It also features a large 50 ounce BPA Free Eastman Tritan™ copolyester jug fitted with a MiniHemisphere Blade and Bowl System. Love citrus? Then this is the blender for you! The citrus cone lid give you direct access into the blender jug to juice citrus before and during blending. All citrus is juiced on top of the blender with the unique lid.
