Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Frozen drinks make a great summertime treat for backyard barbecues and rooftop parties, but many people forget that there are far more options than just frozen margaritas, daiquiris, and piña coladas. 101 Blender Drinks includes all the classics, but also shows you how to turn your favorite cocktails into icy cold, refreshing frozen delights-Cosmopolitans, sangrias, bellinis, and mojitos can all be converted to frozen treats. There's also plenty of creative, one-of-a-kind creations like Yuzu Cucumber Freeze or Guava Lava Passion.

But there are far more options than just drinks with alcohol. What about a cold frozen dessert like Frozen Oreo Cookie or Cool Caramel Flan? Frozen drinks are a great way to cool down during the summer heat. This book offers creative, refreshing options that go far beyond the classics.

  • 101 recipes illustrated with brilliant four-color photographs throughout
  • Recipes emphasize fresh fruits, herbs, and other ingredients for bold and fresh tasting frozen drinks
  • Author Kim Haasarud is a James Beard honored mixologist and the founder of Liquid Architecture, a Los Angeles–based beverage consultancy

With creativity, imagination, and plenty of ice, 101 Blender Drinks will keep your summer get-togethers fun and refreshing.

Recipe Excerpts from 101 Blender Drinks


Watermelon-Basil Margarita

Kim’s Ultimate Piña Colada

Frozen Grasshopper

From the Inside Flap

Nothing cools down a hot summer day like an icy beverage straight from the blender. Whether you're lounging at the pool or barbecuing in the backyard, the perfect cold concoction can turn any summer day into a celebration.

Frozen daiquiris and margaritas are par for the course, but there's so much more you can do with your blender. In 101 Blender Drinks, Kim Haasarud, the Liquid Chef, provides a bevy of sophisticated and fun ideas for mixing up some icy refreshment. All the classics are included, but why not try some new creations? Get your daily dose of fruit with a Papaya Zinger. Or try a Jasmine Peach Bellini made with Prosecco and jasmine tea syrup. For something a little less sweet but just as refreshing, blend up a Pimm's Freeze with cucumber, strawberry, and Pimm's No. 1.

You can also adapt your favorite drinks and cocktails for the blender—cosmopolitans, mojitos, and sangrias are perfect when mixed with ice. There are plenty of alcohol-free options, and you can even break out of the dessert doldrums with a Frozen Oreo Cookie drink or a Cool Caramel Flan.

There's almost no limit to what your blender can do. With imagination and plenty of ice, 101 Blender Drinks will keep your summer get-togethers fun and refreshing.

More About the Author

Kim Haasarud is a James Beard-honored mixologist, author, and beverage consultant. She conceives her signature cocktails much as Alice Waters would create a specialty dish, taking inspiration from market-fresh, high quality ingredients. "Cocktails, like food, should be culinary experiences," says Haasarud. "It is about combining ingredients to create a sensation on the palate and entice all the senses with a combination of flavors, textures, aromas, and garnishes."

You won't find the standard Cosmopolitan or mix-based Margarita on Haasarud's ever-changing bar card. Instead, depending on the occasion or the season, she might shake up Martini infusing teas with fresh muddled fruits, or concoct a Margarita with ripe kumquats or a combination of kiwis and fresh herbs.

Like many of her peers, Haasarud bartended her way through college. But what was just a job for most became a creative outlet for her keen sense of taste. It also sparked an enduring passion for building great cocktails, one that Haasarud still longed to indulge after graduating and going to work in film and television. She found her opportunity in the many industry parties she attended. "The drinks and the bars were always the same and always boring, despite very creative food and themes," says Haasarud. "I recognized that a great cocktail experience would add a rich element to each event." And thus, Haasarud's company, Liquid Architecture, was formed.

Haasarud's liquid cuisine has stirred up a huge following in both New York and Los Angeles. She works with such groups as: PF Changs, Wyndham Worldwide Hotels & Resorts, OMNI, Ritz Carlton, Mastro's, Z'Tejas, Darden, Brinker, TGI Fridays and hundreds of restaurant and wine and spirit clients have commissioned specialty cocktails by Haasarud, including Moet-Hennessy, SKYY Spirits, Future Brands, Diageo, Maxim, and Pepsico to name just a few.

Kim has been a judge on Iron Chef America, as well doing guest appearances on the "The Today Show," CBS' "Early Morning Show," "Fox & Friends Live," "Montel Williams Show", "Sonoran Living", "Your Life A to Z" and Plum TV. She has been featured on various radio programs including "Good Food" with Evan Kleiman, Martha Stewart's "Everyday Food", "Cosmo Radio" and ABC & CNN Radio syndicate. Her cocktails have been seen in hundreds of magazines and newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, LA Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post, Saveur, Edible LA, Vogue, SELF, Wine Enthusiast, BRIDES, Woman's World, Lucky, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Associated Press to name a few. She is also REDBOOK Magazine's "Mommy Mixologist" providing recipes in a monthly column as well as an online blog.

Kim is the author of the best-selling "101... " cocktail series with Wiley & Sons (101 Margaritas , 101 Martinis , 101 Sangrias & Pitcher Drinks, 101 Champagne Cocktails, 101 Blended Drinks and 101 Mojitos and other Muddled Drinks.)

She lives with her husband Kevin, two children Holden & Maddy, and dog Emi in Phoenix, AZ.

The blurb on the inside dust jacket specifically says this book contains "plenty of alcohol-free options." I flipped through all 101 and the introduction and their definition of plenty of consists of four simple syrup variations and almond & rice milk in the introduction and only ONE of the titled 101 recipes. And that ONE is called "Detox Daze - A detoxifying elixir to help you ramp up again after a long night."

The recipes in this book are simple and straightforward, with no brand specific recipes or complicated directions. I love the simplicity and am wanting warmer weather to start blending!
