I have been craving a blended drink! They are cool, fun, and have magical flavors that you just can’t quit. I have an obsession with these bad boys and can’t think of another perfect signature cocktail when the heat strikes. I actually had a debate with a close friend about blended drinks over a game of Big Buck Hunter; I won the blended drink debate and he won Big Buck Hunter.
I suppose you can’t win every battle especially when it comes to video games but winning at cocktails and blended drinks is a must! The blended drink today is perfect for your weekend. It is a twist on a classic Moscow Mule but in place of ginger beer I used ginger beer sorbet. When I saw this ginger beer sorbet at my local ice cream parlor Molly Moon’s, I freaked out! I knew I had to buy some and bring out my blended for some fun! This sorbet is made from a local Seattle Ginger Beer called Rachel’s Ginger Beer. They have a Flagship store in Pike Place Market where they offer awesome ginger beer flavors including original, pink guava, blood orange, white peach, blueberry, and hibiscus. The flavors are so amazing and even if you can’t find ginger beer sorbet you could always use ginger beer blended with ice. Make this blended drink over the weekend because you need to blend away your stressful week!
