Despite what you might think, not all tailgaters approve of your beverage choice of Mad Dog 20/20 and Milwaukee’s Best, aka “The Beast.” And no, an upgrade to Natty Light isn’t going to cause people to flock to your parking spot. Many tailgaters would actually prefer mixed drinks, and for those heading out to one of the warm weather college football bowl games to party next week, might even want a frozen drink. However, a typical blender with its small cord isn’t very conducive to tailgating outdoors.
Now there is a way to get your frozen drinks with minimal effort and the best part is that you get to play with power tools! The DrillBlender makes perfect margaritas and daiquiris by simply using a power drill that is likely already in your tool box. The Drill Blender kit comes with everything else needed for this magic to occur — two plastic mugs with lids and straws, one drill bit and one attachment set. This set contains the hard plastic base, blender blades and gasket. And this can all be purchased for 29 bucks.
The DrillBlender folks recommend at least 1100 RPM of power and they say the more RPMs, the better your drinks will mix. The blending process should take 60-to-90 seconds. Another helpful tip is to use more ice than liquid to actually let the blades do their blending. The web site’s recommendation is to fill the bottle to the top of the handle with ice and then add liquid to two-thirds of the ice.
As long as you operate the blender with two hands and use only the forward switch on your drill, you’ll be good to go. For ordering information, connect to DrillBlender.com. Let the partying commence!
