Boy is it HOT here in St. Louis!  Thanks to the Thermal Cooler Blender from Hamilton Beach, my family and I are staying nice and cool on Independence Day – even on-the-go!  The Thermal Cooler Blender keeps your smoothies, shakes and margaritas cold for up to eight hours!  My family and I had a great time trying out all kinds of great recipes in the blender – I think my favorite was the pomegranate margarita!  YUM!  The blender includes a 48 ounce thermal jar that fits right on the blender base – after mixing, just remove it and take it right along with you.  It even has a convenient handle for carrying to your tailgate party. the pool or beach – even out on the boat!  The jar features a screw-top lid with a foldaway, pour-through spot for easy serving!  Hamilton Beach Thermal Cooler Blenders also include an additional blender jar (glass or plastic depending on the model) for added versatility!  Perfect year round – because who likes watered down drinks after all!?!  Available at www.hamiltonbeach.com
