Blender drinks are one of my favorite things about summertime and warm weather. With a blender, fruit, and ice you have almost limitless options of combinations, flavors, mocktails, and cocktails. While I anxiously await summer fruit, I’ve created an Orange Grapefruit Margarita that tastes delicious any time of year.
My Orange Grapefruit Margarita is made refreshing with fresh grapefruit and orange juice.
Making the Orange Grapefruit Margarita with the Breville Hemisphere Twist Blender the features 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 deliver great results from smoothies to dips, and purees to desserts.
The Breville Hemisphere® 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. Perfect for making margaritas!
Love citrus? Then this is the blender for you! The citrus cone lid gives 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.
