With the piercing summer heat, restaurants are coming up with numerous gimmicks or promotions to invite customers to try their products and services this summer. Diners sell ice cream and halo-halo on a discounted price to entice more clients.

Speaking of summer deal, I think recording studio equipment available at Musicians Friend is also on sale. Check them out.

Best Summer Coolers

Now that it is summer, the weather is hot and the sun is out all the time. While it can be fun in the beginning because there are a lot of activities that can be done when the sun is out, there are times when the heat can already become uncomfortable and this makes people want to have the best summer coolers that are available. They can drink these refreshing drinks while they are having fun under the sun.

Of course, making these various summer coolers will not be possible without the use of industrial blenders. As long as people have the right blender at home, they can be sure that making the drinks will be far easier to do.

  • Raspberry Lemonade – Want to make sure that your usual raspberry will have a bit of a tangy taste to it? Just add a bit of lemon and the taste will be exquisite. Of course, make sure that you will blend the ingredients well to help cool you down.
  • Mango Milkshake – It seems that everyone loves mango so why not add a bit of milk to the mix to tone down its taste a bit? It will still refresh you and you will welcome the nice taste a lot.
  • Watermelon with Basil – Watermelon is already a summer staple and you cannot go through summer without having a bit of watermelon in your system. You can help improve the taste though with a bit of basil. It will add a nice twist to your drink.

You can be sure that with all of these drinks in mind, you will be able to make use of your industrial blender properly and still get to enjoy the rest of your summer.

Homemade Milk Tea

I’ve stumbled the recipe on YouTube and made my own variation of this popular milk tea without sago. Here’s how I made it.

You need the following: evaporated milk, condensed milk, tea bags (I used Lipton tea for this one), water, and ice.

Procedure:

1. In a container, pour hot water over your desired number of teabags (I used 10 to 13 teabags) and let it stand for 10 minutes or more.
2. Mixed the tea with evaporated milk, condensed milk, and cold water. I produced 2.5 liter milk tea after this.
3. You can put ice cubes or ice tubes directly into the container or in a glass of milk tea.
4. Place it in the freezer. The colder your milk tea the better.

Other milk tea variations have sago or black gulaman as ingredient.
