Fair Isle Cocktail
13 Nov 12 1
Scotch plays well with Cocchi Barolo Chinato. The name of the digestif isn't just fun to say; it's one of the world's finest digestivos infused with cinchona, ginger & rhubarb. A fortified nebbiolo wine infused with tasty stuff and a little sugar make it amazing in cocktails like the Scotch based Fair Isle. Learn more about Vitamix products: commercial.vitamix.com.

How Maraschino Cherries Are Made
20 Oct 11 3
Kathy had the honor of touring the beautiful cherry orchards of Washington and Oregon to see how the maraschino cherry is made from harvest to jar.
21 Aug 12 3
It’s what you’ll be after drinking this drink! It’s like fire and ice in a glass. But use the hot sauce with slight hand; it should enhance – not overpower. Shake in a few sprigs of cilantro for a little herbalicious’ness!

Aquavit’s spice notes of caraway and cardamom dance well with crisp cold vodka and citrus in this cocktail - which pairs so perfectly with fresh oysters briny flavor.
Liquid Indulgence Spiked Milkshake
25 Sep 12 2
Liquid Indulgence says it all about this libacious after dinner sipper. It is the perfect drinkable “little something” dessert! A splash of Mezcal adds a touch of smoke and earthiness to an otherwise creamy, delectable end to your meal. Learn more about The Quiet One from Vitamix.
Atomic Orange Cocktail
10 Dec 13 0

Harvest Dark and Stormy Cocktail
24 Sep 13 2
It's harvest time and delicious apples are ready, and perfect, for use in cocktails. This twist on the classic Dark and Stormy cocktail uses a blended Apple Ginger Puree to compliment the traditional flavors of the ginger beer and dark rum. You can make the Apple Ginger Puree up in advance with your Vitamix The Quiet One Blender and store up to a week. I like to use granny smith apples for their tart flavor.
Grand Salted Caramel Old Fashioned
10 Sep 13 0
The addition of caramel spiked with Grand Marnier and a decoratively salted glass makes this twist on an old fashioned cocktail the perfect after dinner drink. Making the caramel is easy (watch how here: http://youtu.be/muTtsJ5zo2c) but don't walk away! It will come together quickly and needs constant attention. Whether you use the caramel in this cocktail creation or simply spoon it over ice cream, it is well worth making as it can be stored for weeks.
Pineapple Mezcal Cooler Cocktail
27 Aug 13 2
Kathy uses an un-aged mezcal in this cocktail but any style would work well. A fresh sage leaf shaken in adds a dusky flavor. You can also make it with silver tequila, if you don't have mezcal. The Fresh Pineapple Agave can be made ahead with your Vitamix The Quiet One Blender, and is great as a non-alcoholic beverage when a bit of soda water is added.
Sparkling Tradewinds Punch
13 Aug 13 0
"Make ahead" punch is great to serve to a large crowd. Present in a punch bowl over a big ice ring, or serve up over fun to make Cherry Bitter Ice Balls. Check gourmet stores and on-line for ice ball molds.
Berries and Bubbles Cocktail
30 Jul 13 3
The Berries and Bubbles Cocktail can be made with any berry that is in season. With the addition of a nice brut Champagne, this cocktail is perfect for entertaining or celebrating.
Strawberry Basil Blush Cocktail
17 Jul 13 6
The Strawberry Basil Blush cocktail brings together the wonderful flavors and aromas of basil and strawberries. It is a very fruit forward cocktail that is perfect when fresh ripe strawberries are in season. Try making it with either vodka or gin and see which you prefer. For a tall and refreshing play on this cocktail serve it over ice.
