Blend Jet colors

We are in the process of exploring personal blenders and began our sipping journey with the powerful, compact, and irresistible Blendjet. It was love at first sip with this portable little wonder which easily packs into a lunch bag, a tote or a suitcase. The Blendjet is  wireless, rechargeable and lightweight, and can travel anywhere that an imagination will take it. Once closed, it is leakproof. Just prepare the drink at home and take it along ..ready to whirr!
The Blendjet is also a perfect little helper to make small portions of dips, sauces, and dressings. But, our favorite use is creating sips just for us! Yes, it's coming to the beach with us and we'll be sipping on the sand. And, one is soon on its way to a seminary in Israel. OMG wait until you see 6 luscious colors. Yes, you can mix them up -- one for dairy and one for parve drinks.

We are sharing some of our fave recipes for summer sips. If you are serving a crowd, just increase the recipe incrementally and use a full size blender.

The SECRETS to real southern Sweetened Iced Tea
No blender needed...but we are happy to share the most classic southern summer sip ...Sit back, relax and enjoy!
2 quarts water
1/2 cup sugar (or more if you wish)*
4 Family sized tea bags - We use Luzianne brand iced tea bags
Optional: Fresh mint leaves, lemon, lime, orange slices or sliced peaches
*Add more sugar to boiling mixture for sweeter tea

Bring water and sugar to boil.  Simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from flame
Add tea bags, and optional lime, lemon, mint or peaches.. Let steep at room temperature about 1 hour. Remove tea bags and flavorings.
When serving, add additional slices of fresh citrus, peach and/or a mint leaf or two. *Add more sugar to boiling mixture if you like sweeter tea!
KosherEye note: The secret to sweetened iced tea is to dissolve the sugar into the water while on the flame and then remove the water and add tea bags and flavorings.
