Take out your hand blender and add a personal touch to your drinks with these 4 easy-to-make cocktails and 2 child-friendly mocktails.

1. Classic daiquiri with a fruity twist – Peach Daiquiri

Everyone's heard of a strawberry daiquiri but personalise your daiquiri with any seasonal fruit or what you crave. Here we show you how to make a Peach Daiquiri using the versatile hand blender.


You can use fresh peaches or frozen or canned peaches for this recipe. Of course, fresh peaches taste better with the natural sweetness and a hint of tartness but don’t be too hung up on getting them if you can’t find them.

2 servings


  • 2 Peaches
  • 1Tbsp Honey
  • Juice of 2 medium limes
  • White rum (as desired)
  • Ice


If using fresh peaches, remove the pit. In a tall container, add pitted peaches, honey, fresh lime juice, and white rum and blend using a hand blender till smooth. 

MultiQuick 7 Hand blender comes with a 600ml beaker that would be ideal for making a single portion. The MultiQuick 7 ultrahard stainless steel blade is capable of breaking ice cubes but not as finely as a jug blender.

Thanks to the ice-crushing blade that crushes ice effortlessly, get a silky smooth Peach Daiquiri simply by blending all the ingredients using the MultiQuick 7 's 1.25L jug blender attachment. It's especially a great help when making large quantities while easily controlling the consistency of the daiquiri with our intuitive speed control. Learn more here.  

If you don't own an appliance capable of crushing ice very finely to get a smooth cocktail, we share a hack in the next recipe.

Tip: Serve with whipped cream and slices of lime if desired. Use the hand blender to make whip cream in seconds and grate some lime zest for extra zing

2. Frozen Pina Colada

  • 90 ml   Coconut cream
  • 175ml  White rum
  • 175ml  Pineapple juice
  • 235ml  Water
  • Fresh lime juice - Juice from half a lime


  1. Prepare a large ziplock bag that can fill the pre-frozen pina colada.

  3. Pour the mixture into the ziplock bag, seal and lay it flat in the freezer overnight or until completely frozen.  
  4. When ready, break the frozen ingredients inside the bag into a few chunks using your hands or a rolling pin. While frozen, pour it into a tall container if you are using a hand blender like the MultiQuick 7 to blend finely or use a jug blender

3. Blueberry Lavender Vodka Spritzer

A sure hit with the ladies, this violet-coloured spritzer is a pick-me-up, soft on the eyes and oozes femininity. Perfect for an all-girls night and any other occasion. Enjoying this cocktail in a lavender aroma-infused room with scented candles or diffusers enhances the flavours.   


8 servings


For Blueberry Lavender Simple Syrup:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup blueberries - fresh or frozen
  • 4 sprigs organic fresh lavender, or 1 tablespoon dry culinary lavender

For the Vodka Spritzer:

  • 2 cups vodka
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 litre club soda / soda water/ seltzer
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • Fresh lavender sprigs, for garnish (substitute with lemon thyme or rosemary sprigs) 

Tip: Fresh and dried lavender are sold at organic grocers and supermarkets in the organic food section. Start by making the simple syrup since it takes time for the flavours to infuse into the syrup.


Simple syrup

  1. Add all the ingredients except the lavender in a deep saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. You may want to use a hand blender to juice the blueberries before combining them with the other ingredients. 
  2. Add in the lavender sprigs or dried flower buds and continue to simmer on low heat for 10min. When the flavours of the lavender and blueberry have been infused, the syrup is ready. 
  3. Strain the syrup into a container for later use.

Making the cocktail

In a serving jug or bowl, mix the vodka, soda and lime juice together. Add in the blueberry syrup to sweeten. Add the sprigs of lavender and whole blueberries for garnish. 

To serve in glasses, you can prepare by adding a few blueberries and a sprig of lavender as a garnish for a presentable cocktail.  

Hack: You can substitute flavoured soda water and use simple syrup if you're short of time or don't have the ingredients.   

Tip: Any time you find your cocktail flat, a quick whizz with the hand blender will add some fizz to the drink. 

4. Classic Whisky Sour cocktail


You can never go wrong with this evergreen Whisky Sour that dates back two centuries ago in the famed “Jerry Thomas Bartenders Guide". The thought of raw egg white in your cocktail might seem peculiar but it's what adds richness to the body and mellows the tartness of the cocktail. What's more, you can feel good drinking protein in your cocktail.

1 serving


  • 1 egg white (make sure to use fresh eggs)
  • ¼ ounce vanilla simple syrup
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • 1½ ounce whiskey
  • Dash Angostura bitters
  • Ice


Blend the egg white, simple syrup, lemon juice, whiskey, and bitters in a tall container like the MultiQuick 7's beaker till the egg white is foamy. You can also use the whisk attachment to beat the egg white. Pour into a glass with ice, garnish with orange peel and serve. 

Alternatively, add all the ingredients except the ice into the jug blender attachment and blend till the egg white is frothy and the drink is well mixed. Throw in large cubes of ice and pulse for a few seconds repeatedly to chill the drink without crushing the ice into small bits. Immediately, strain the mixture into a glass with fresh ice cubes. Garnish with orange peel and a cocktail cherry to serve. 

5. Watermelon, coconut, and basil mocktail


December used to be a wet month but we can't predict how the weather will surprise us this year. Rain or shine, Watermelon, coconut, and basil mocktails make a refreshing and thirst-quenching Christmassy drink. Ideal for family gatherings with children and non-drinkers.
