How To Make Perfectly Blended Cocktails

In this lesson you’ll learn how to make a perfectly blended drink, not to chunky and not too thin or watery. With blended cocktails, the goal is to have a nice even smoothie-like consistency.

The trick to achieving that perfect consistency is to make sure that you have the proper ration of ice to liquids. If you have too much ice without enough liquids, the resulting blended recipe will be thick and chunky like a snowcone.

Although this might sound great on a hot summers day, it will actually make the cocktail seem watered down as too much ice dilutes the flavor. However, a drink that has too much liquids will also seem diluted and watered down.

Watch how you can make sure to get that perfect consistency that your customers are looking for.
