Crystal Blue Persuasion Cocktail #BreakingBadFinale
No week of recipes celebrating the versatility of the Vitamix would be complete without a frozen blended cocktail. And since there’s nothing on my brain this week more than Breaking Bad (seriously, just trying to kill time until Sunday at this point), I had to make a drink reminiscent of Heisenberg’s blue product.
This cocktail primarily tastes like a jazzed-up frozen margarita (cue the awkward White-Schrader couples dinner date at the Mexican restaurant). I dipped into the stash of tequila my husband brought back from numerous work trips to Mexico (at least, the stash I hadn’t already used to make lemon margaritas).
I added a splash of pineapple juice, as well as some blue Hypnotiq for more fruity flavor (and a touch of blue color, although I also added a smidge of food coloring to really make it blue). Knowing that my Vitamix makes quick work of ice cubes, a cup of ice was pulverized in no time, and I had a frothy, perfectly blended cocktail.
While I don’t think the ending of Breaking Bad will involve any characters celebrating with a frozen beverage (seriously, which characters are even going to be alive at the end?), I’ll be sipping this crystal blue persuasion cocktail on Sunday night. While clenching my jaw and sitting on the edge of my seat.

We are going through Breaking Bad withdrawals. I’ve used my Vitamix mostly for smoothies and cocktails so far, but am looking forward to seeing just how hot it can make blended soups.
I love making classic chocolate shakes!
I like making green smoothies
butternut squash soup is my favorite blender creation
we like making smoothies for the family..
I like making vegan nut “cheeses” in the blender; however, the blender I have is not powerful enough and the cheese always turns out gritty. 🙁
I love making smoothies in the blender. It is a great way to add some healthy ingredients that are easier to drink than eat sometimes.
That would be a thick chocolate milkshake….but that crystal blue persuasion is looking really good right now. I’m going to miss that show.

It’s been a bad day for me with technical issues and I’m not sure what to do. I tried to like your FB page but FB isn’t allowing me to like any FB pages right now. I’ve contacted them to find out why (I would never post anything abusive on any page & never use profanity) so I don’t know if my account has been hacked or what. I wanted to email you to explain about my FB issues, but am having trouble even doing that…could you please post a direct email address? The link opens windows live on my computer and I don’t use that email program. Thanks!

I had sort of figured that was the case, but you’re the first to confirm it! That’s pretty funny 🙂
Wow, that is one deep blue cocktail–gorgeous!
I MAY have added a bit too much food coloring 😉
