No pulp and seeds in your drink. Hamilton Beach

As we turn the corner into spring, the dream of warm weather will start to become more than just a fantasy. Soon enough, the cold weather and rainy days will be behind us, and we will re-emerge from dark interiors back into an outdoor mindset. Which means, that not only will the chores of everyday life be less of a task, but also that outdoor activities will only be a weekend away. And all this outdoor living is sure to draw up a thirst.

The Hamilton Beach Aguas Fresca Blender is one way to combat the thirst that is sure to be worked up over the coming months. Facilitating the preparation for popular warm-weather drinks, the blender incorporates a strainer for maximum ease. And of course, maximum ease and comfort is the name of the game for fun in the sun.

The 10-speed 700-watt blender offers the versatility needed for blending a variety of beverages. A 56-ounce capacity blending jar is sizable enough to keep the good times rolling. The incorporated strainer keeps pulp and seeds out of fruit-based creations, but the appliance can also be used as a traditional blender--just in case the weather doesn't cooperate.

The Hamilton Beach 50162 Aguas Fresca Blender will be available May 2010.
