HOW DO I SERVE FROZEN DRINKS?
You’ve mixed your frozen drinks to the perfect thick, creamy texture, now it’s time to serve. Keep thinking cold. Pour into chilled glasses—without stirring—and serve as soon as possible. Choose your glassware wisely. For frozen cocktails, consider a glass with a stem. This will keep the heat of your hands from melting the drink too quickly. A tall, chilled glass or mug, preferably with a handle, will work for milkshakes, slushies, smoothies or frappés.
Frozen drinks make an even more festive addition to the party with creative garnishes. A dusting of spice to kick up the heat, shapes cut from fruit, a sprig of fresh herbs, chocolate curls, edible flowers, pretty umbrellas, all of these—and anything else that strikes your fancy—can boost the fun factor.
Frozen drinks can be served throughout the day and into the evening. Serve a Beet Berry Smoothie with Puffed Quinoa Granola Bars for breakfast. Make a Classic Milkshake to go with a Sweet Potato Black Bean Burger for lunch. For a cool snack on a hot afternoon, try making a Tropical Fruit Slushie and pair it with a Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix. Or whip up a batch of Frozen Coconut Margaritas in your blender and serve with a crowd-pleasing 7 Layer Dip at cocktail hour. Use your KitchenAid® stand mixer and the KitchenAid® Fresh Prep Slicer/Shredder Attachment2 to streamline the prep for the dip.
