Thread: Cranberry (sauce) Daiquiri?

    Default Cranberry (sauce) Daiquiri?

    If this is a bad idea, or if the proportions are obviously screwed up,
    somebody talk me out of it:

    1 cup crushed ice
    1 ounce 151 proof rum
    1 ounce lime juice
    canned "whole berry" cranberry sauce, to taste (about 2 or 3 ounces)

    Whiz it all together in a blender until smooth. Serve in a "Hurricane"
    glass.

    I'm sure it will end up specked with seeds and skins instead of
    perfectly smooth, but I don't think that'll be a problem.

    The only problem I see is the finished drink might be kinda tart.
    Might wanna have some simple syrup handy for a finishing tweak. I
    realize, whole canned cranberry sauce already has a lotta sugar, but,
    still.....

    Jes a thought.

    Try my method; I think you'll like it better. Freeze cranberry juice in ice
    cube trays. Using plain old 'water' ice makes a very diluted drink. You may
    want to add some confectioner's sugar. After about the 2nd blenderful, do
    remember to put the lid firmly back on the blender. Cranberry ceilings are
    a real bummer. Hoist one for me. We don't get to do that anymore. Polly

    I'd use drained canned peaches or frozen strawberries before
    canned whole cranberry sauce.

    I got one of those Ninja thingies at Costco just to make ice change
    into small chips or snow. Hot damn! That thing really works and in
    less than 10 seconds and no added liquid. I've put all my blenders
    away.

    I NEED a Ninja thingie. Could you be just a wee bit more
    specific? Our ice maker is a miserable clunker and I'd love to be able to
    chip the cubes. Polly

    This is like the one that I got at Costco.

    http://www.amazon.com/Euro-Pro-Ninja.../dp/B002JM2V9K


    If the link doesn't work, look at Amazon for the Euro-Pro Ninja Master
    Blender.

    I paid $39 for it. Mine came with three different size pitchers, two
    different spindles of blades (short for short pitcher, longer for
    taller pitcher) Ninja has come out with a new, expensive model that
    looks pretty much like a traditional blender. The difference in the
    Ninja is that the motor is removable and sits on top, the pitchers are
    wide at the bottom with stacked blades. Mine makes snow -- really.
    For years I've looked for something that would chip, crack or break up
    ice without a lot of fuss and no puddles of water afterward. I got
    the Ninja specifically for mixing drinks. It also makes a couple of
    dishes of 'ice cream' in seconds -- frozen strawberries, milk and
    sugar -- hit the motor for about 12-15 seconds and the stuff turns to
    soft serve ice cream. I can eat this 'ice cream' without distress
    because there are only 3 ingredients. My tummy doesn't like
    commercially made stuff. It's not really ice cream but what a great
    refresher. I'm sure it does other stuff equally well but this is all
    I wanted it for.

    Wife bought a Kitchenaid blender a few years ago when the glass jar
    broke on our ancient blender. I hate the "soft start" on the KA
    blender, but other than that it does a good job. The one thing it
    excels at is crushing ice. I can put a big chunk of ice (about 3/4 cup)
    in and turn it on and it pulverizes it almost instantly.

    I still have the motor and blades from the old blender. They fit a
    small-mouth canning jar. Works great for grinding spices and stuff that
    would get lost in a full-size blender jar and too messy to use a coffee
    grinder. But it never was any good at mixing drinks because the bottom
    of the jar was too small.

    I'd use Cranberry Juice Concentrate, or maybe the Cranberry canned
    jelly, but no way in hell would I use the whole cranberry stuff for a
    drink!

    I'd run it through a jelly bag (or doubled cheesecloth or coffee
    filters), personally.

    Y'all don't understand! I have a half a can of cranberry sauce open in
    the fridge. :-) I made a banana daiquiri last night (never had one
    before) and started thinking "what else might work?"

    I have a Kitchenaid blender that is just a few years old and it sucks
    at crushing ice. You must have the knack for getting it to work

    I got mine at Sam's- and second Janet's enthusiasm. Mine gets used
    most for 20 second bean dip, that starts with whole cloves of garlic.
    No big bits after about 4 seconds.

    I don't know anything about what you bought. Do I just look for
    "Ninja"?

    OIC! Looks like a double blade. Is it better than a "Magic Bullet"?
    http://www.buythebullet.com/ I don't have one of those either.

    Double blade for the short pitcher and triple blade for the tall
    pitcher. I don't have a "Bullet" and was never interested mostly
    because of the small container. All I can vouch for is that ice chops
    to all same size chips or total snow. Veggies (celery, onion, garlic,
    carrots) all chop evenly to whatever size you want. I haven't tried
    it for smoothies because I am not a smoothie person. I do love it for
    ice for mixed drinks. I mostly prefer to chop a few veggies by hand,
    but if I'm doing something in a really big way that requires a large
    amount of veggies, I will use the Ninja.
