Drill blender ooozes ultra urban redneck appeal!

Rhino - our touring toy!

When we head out on the Rhino touring around the great outdoors, our adult beverage of choice has typically been beer. It’s convenient and easy to transport and comes in its own container (and not to mention it pretty darn tasty too).

But lately, I’ve been watching friends touring around with delightful mixed drinks. Chocolate monkeys, frozen margaritas, pina coladas; all pre-mixed. Bring a cup, add a little ice and voila – classy cocktails on the trail.

For me though, it’s not the same.

Those drinks are what I call, blender drinks and without the blender, they just don’t cut it. I want frosty, thick, smoothy-like crushed iced making my cocktail sizzle. I want ice cream headaches! But try finding a power converter that is strong enough to mix a batch of margaritas in a blender in the great outdoors. Can you say impossible?

Not to mention, carting that bad-ass blender around is a pain and a smidge embarrassing. Y’all know I am an “urban” redneck but the peeps I travel around with on the weekends…well…let’s just say they are a wee bit more full-blooded redneck (shhhhh…) so if I show up with a blender, I am going to take a teasing!!

Well…sit down and grab hold of your panties cause I have found us the solution!

The Drill Blender!

All you need is a cordless drill (make sure it has at least 1100 RPM…) and voila, we are good to go with the Drill Blender.

Yip, it’s a completely portable blender system that can whip up a batch of margaritas in about 60 to 90 seconds.

How does it work? I am so glad you asked cause it’s sooo easy!

All you do is place the custom drill bit made especially for the Drill Blender into your drill chuck just like you would a regular drill bit. Then place the drill bit into the plastic base, pull the trigger and BAM – we are whipping up fav frozen drinks. Once the drink is blended, simply take off the blending attachment and replace it with a mug cap and straw and get the party started!

Can you say uberlicious? I am going to be the talk of the trail with this little ditty. I get my perfect blender drinks WHILE maintaining my ultra cool urban redneck reputation – it’s a win/win! Ummmm…hubby…can I borrow your cordless drill???

Now…you should note that when it comes to RPMs and the Drill Blender, more is better. Drills with 1100 RPMs (and most good quality drills – 12 volts and higher – turn at around 1100 RPM) will do a good job of blending but you will still get some M&M size ice pellets in the slush. Check your drill to make sure it puts out 1100 RPM or higher.

Other tips you should consider when using the Drill Blender:

  • Use more ice than liquid when mixing a drink. Just like your blender at home, if you put in a few chunks of ice they will just float around the top of the bottle.
  • For best results, fill your bottle to about the top of the handle with ice. Add your liquid to about 2/3 of the ice. This will give your Drill Blender blades something to grab onto and blend.
  • Even though it’s ultra cool to use one hand and jack that baby up into the air while blending, it’s advised that you USE BOTH HANDS; one holding the drill and the other holding the bottle handle.
  • Make sure your drill battery has a full charge.
      The Drill Blender 2-pack includes everything you need to get started:  two 32 oz. mugs with caps and straws; 1 drill bit; and 1 blending attachment set for 1 mug (includes the hard plastic base, blender blades and gasket).
And…a steal of a deal at just $29.95 (USD) plus $8.00 flat rate shipping to the continental United States. Get yours here.
 
Santa…would mind terribly adding this one to your Natalie list as well?
 
 
It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!
 

What’s cracked you up this week?

  1. OMG, tears in my eyes. Where do you find this stuff? This would be perfect for me because I hate beer and always end up with Smirnoff or something like that, and I really want a damned strawberry margarita. Totally showing the hubs this one!

  2. I’d donate my Dewalt there bartender!! But it’ll cost you a drink and a dance!

  3. Ok, seriously, where do you find these things?! I want pictures of you guys making your drill-blended margaritas!

  4. Seriously, this is a damn fine idea and one that I wish I’d come up with! Not that I need a blender on the go, but it’s such a great idea!

    I’m in a bit of shock that your touring vehicle isn’t pink. What’s up with that?

    Back to the blender – you have GOT to get one! Post pics, let us know how it works out for you. I’ll bet all your friends will be stopping by your little off road car thing and putting in their orders!

    Uberfabulicious!!!!

    • Isn’t it though? I seriously want to pick one up but they may only ship to the US – will investigate! And yes, if I buy one, I will post pics! LOL!
      I know – I sooo wanted to buy pink plastic for the bike but hubby wouldn’t budge – said I was taking it to far. Weird!?!? But I guess where he drives it like 100% of the time (not that he doesn’t offer, he does but I prefer to just sit back and enjoy the ride), I can see his point. But still – I think we’d be fahhbulous in pink! 🙂
      With a drill blender, I’ll be a hit and you are absolutely right, I can actually take ORDERS and make $$$!!! HAHAHA!!!
      Love that – uberfabulicious – YUMMY!!!

  5. Where do you find this stuff?? LOL! I can’t breathe.

  6. Elena Aitken says:

    Seriously, you find the best stuff!! I love this for camping because I may be the last of our friends to still camp in an actual tent. Awesome stuff!

  7. OMG, Natalie! The drill blender is a riot! Love it, ha,ha.

  8. My first thought is eww…would the drinks even taste good? I guess this is because all my experience with drills is with rusty ones. My next thought is that I need to get creating. There is a market for all kinds of twisted stuff. 🙂

    • LOL – I can picture the old rusty drill (yes…gross…hahaha)! But hubby’s is new and ready to rock and roll! 🙂 There’s totally a market for this wacky stuff! People love the unusual, eh?! LOL!!!

  9. I don’t know where you find this stuff, but it cracks me up every time! Thanks for the laugh!

    Natalie, Natalie, this is for us! We have a drill, we have power, we could use this. One problem…no ice. What good is a great drink without ice? No way can I get an ice cream headache with warm liquer. Hmmm… I’ll have to think on this a bit, find a location I can ship it to, farther south, I hate waiting for packages, need to have it there when we arrive. Hmm….

    • LOL – I am thrilled you love it! I think it’ll be fabulous and I mean, you can still do pina colodas and margaritas without ice – just not quite as frothy and cold! But mixing them with the drill will ROCK!!!

  11. well now that might be quite handy for the restaurant….blend it at the table! =)
