Five delicious summer cocktails made in the Thermomix

Thermomix summer cocktailsWith temperatures set to roasting in London, having a delicious cool summer drink really helps to make the most of the weather!

As the Thermomix can easily crush ice, blend fruit and mix ingredients, it’s superb at making drinks that will help you cool down, relax and chill out.

I’ve had a look around the web for some awesome suggestions to help you beat the heat. Read below!

Thermomix Mojito

Thermomix Mojito

This delicious mojito recipe is adapted from KirstyE on the Thermomix Australia website and makes two mojitos.

  • 15g icing sugar
  • 15-20 mint leaves (save a few as a garnish)
  • 1 – 2 limes
  • 50g bacardi
  • 50g soda / sparkling water
  • 200g ice

Instructions

  1. Chop the limes into quarters and place in the bowl with the sugar and most of the mint leaves (save a few to garnish). Put on for 20 seconds, reverse at speed 4.
  2. Add the bacardi, ice and sparkling water and put on for 5 seconds, reverse at speed 4.
  3. Pour into chilled glasses with extra ice and garnish with the left over mint. If you don’t like bits in your mojito, use the internal straining basket or a cocktail strainer.

Thermomix Strawberry Daiquiri

Strawberry Daiquiri with lime in a hurricane glass on a salted rimI was inspired to create this after seeing this in some bars. I like serving this cocktail in chilled cocktail glasses, and like the picture above, I run the edge of the glass with a lime and then dip it in sugar to give a really nice frosted look!

Ingredients

  • 50g Bacardi or white rum
  • 12 fresh strawberries (preferably frozen in advance)
  • 2 limes (or 20ml lime juice)
  • 1 tbsp sugar plus extra to dust the glasses
  • 100g ice (you can add more or less depending on your taste)

Instructions

  1. Cut one of the limes in half, and run around the edges of the glasses you are going to serve the cocktail in. Dip the upturned glasses in the sugar.
  2. Squeeze the rest of the limes into the Thermomix. If you really like lime (and they are washed and unwaxed), you can just chuck them in the Thermomix.
  3. Add the strawberries, Bacardi/rum, ice and sugar to the Thermomix.
  4. Close the lid, and put on for 20 seconds at speed 8.
  5. Pour into glasses and serve. Garnish with either a slice of lime, or a strawberry resting on the edge of the glass.
