Today I’m gearing up for 4thof July next week, which means it’s time for the perfect summer cocktail to serve to your guests. Making batch cocktails use to stress me out and take forever, but since I got the Vitamix with the Aer Disc Container, I’ve been able to make big batches of cocktails in minutes! The Aer Disc Container muddles, whips, emulsifies and creates foam, which helps you create your own cocktail concoctions in no time flat. I absolutely love it! And as you’ll see in this video, this recipe for Mandarin Vodka Mojitos is made in no time flat since the Aer Disc Container muddles the mint in seconds! No arm work needed!

I’ve been on a bit of a cocktail kick lately. I don’t know what’s gotten into me. Maybe it’s all the travel I’ve been doing or maybe my tastebuds have changed, but either way, I’m digging a fruity cocktail most times when I’m at a fun restaurant that I know works hard at their cocktails. I’m not looking for some crappy vodka soda. No way, bro. I’m looking for a drink that will blow my mind. Like the ones I made for this post. And most of the time, they are a bit underwhelming. Which is exactly why I am trying to get better at cocktail making. That way I can have cocktails in my pajamas, in the comfort of my own home. How lovely does that sound?

And now that I have this Vitamix with the Aer Disc Container, it’s time to start dreaming up new cocktails. Maybe some margaritas made with jalapeño, mint and lime. Maybe something with peaches since those will be in season soon! Or maybe even a blackberry mint spiked lemonade. I head to Leavenworth, Washington in two days and I’ll be on the hunt for the perfect cocktail there for some new inspiration for the blog! Can’t wait to share what I find!

    Ah Leavenworth is the best! We make the drive from Seattle a few times per year either on our way to the Eastern WA lakes or to enjoy the fall colors. Cannot recommend any cocktails there as we mostly beer sample (cause, ya know, German town), but I can recommend anything by the Cured brand for their brats, sausages and cured meats – they pretty much own the whole city block right when you get to town. And definitely can recommend the cider from Goose Ridge winery cause it doesn’t taste like sugary crap. Enjoy!

    This looks amazing! However, I wish I could afford a Vitamix, but that is not possible right now. Can you tell me how to make this with a Ninja? Thanks!!

      not for this specific recipe. i would recommend muddling the mint yourself if you don’t have the aer disc container. using a different kind of blender will just blend the ingredients instead of muddling it

    It was nice to try something new. Normally the less ingredients the better for me. More natural is always good.
