the magic bullet

i know you've all seen the infomercial about the magic bullet. it's a great party item, and you can make virtually anything using it...and it's so easy to clean! well, i received said magic bullet as a gift and this blog will chronicle how well the bullet lives up to its reputation.

easy frozen margaritas


i packed up the bullet for a road trip to burlington to see some good friends. the plan was to make some adult drinks and to see how the bullet handled chopping up ice.

easy frozen margaritas are fun to make, especially with an eager assistant like lisa.

you can make each in their own party mug and then just screw on the colourful lip rings. this way, when things become distorted from the margaritas, at least you can see which glass is yours.

we added margarita mix for a count of three, added tequila for a long count of three (or was it four?) and then filled the glass 3/4 full with ice. blend until smooth.

the bullet pulverized the ice. no problem there.

i think it was safe to say that lisa was "amazed" at the bullet.

the margaritas were delicious!

Love it to bits! I want a magic bullet! Mostly because the infomercial gods have brainwashed me into thinking that I can't live without it.

This is so in line with my 'alocholic smoothies' idea. Mmmmm, can we have this for the backyard parties?? Strawberry Daquaries... yum.
I heard warm weather is coming....

Enjoy the Magic Bullet while you can because it won't last long. I found that after the first 10 frozen drink blendings, that was just two drinks a day over a five day period, that it starts going downhill from there. The MB won't last for long. It just isn't made last.

Stick with a reputable, sturdy well built blender if frozen drinks are your thing. Otherwise, once your MB bites the dust, the cost of those frozen delights will be more than you would have paid for the same frozen drinks in a 5 Star restaurant.
