Bringing a little Dominican-feel to the trails

Picture this. Hubby and I are out on the Rhino. There’s a gang of other ATVer with us. We stop to enjoy an adult beverage. Hubby cranks up the tunes and we’re all rockin’ it out! I drop the tailgate and in a few minutes, hubby and I have set up our very own MOBILE TIKI BAR!

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

Thasss right! Hubby and I will be whipping up drinks with our drill blender and serving up the crew in STYLE….in the middle of nowhere…with the HarKen Tiki Bar (HarKen is a combo of our two last names)! It’ll be like bringing a little taste of the Dominican Republic everywhere we go. I love it! Instant party!

When assembled the bar top is nearly 60” long and around 22″ deep. The counter height is 39″ tall. With the roof, the total height from the ground to the top is 86″.

So this is no tiny little bar – it’s packs a punch!

The makers of the Mobile Tiki Bar say it can be assembled in only 6 STEPS and in less than TEN MINUTES. Wowzers! Check out the video the guys at Mobile Tiki Bar.com put together:

Impressive guys!!!

It’s custom built to order and made of solid wood and pvc so it’s sturdy while still very light!

Hmmmm…I wonder if it’s strong enough for me to dance on?!?!

HOLY balls – wait a minute!! I could purchase 2 Mobile Tiki Bars and create an L shape or get 3 and create a horseshoe shaped tiki bar. Then….I could whip off the roofs, fire up the ol’ karaoke, kick up my heels and I’ll be the Coyote Ugly of the trail!!! Woot woot!!!

I know, eh?!?! I’ll be PERFECT!

And best of all, when packed away, the Mobile Tiki Bar fits into a large duffel bag (included with purchase) and weighs about 60 pounds.

This bad boy has been featured in Consumers Digest and Tailgater Monthly so you know…it’s the real deal!

Unfortunately, the Mobile Tiki Bar ain’t cheap. It costs around $650.00 US plus actual shipping costs. But I think it’s totally worth it. If you are interest, visit the Mobile Tiki Bar.com and order yours.

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!

Could you use a Mobile Tiki Bar in your backyard? Ever Coyote Uglied it up? Come on…share the wealth!

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?
