Many people love alcoholic cocktails but do not dare to cook them at home. The reasons for this are often incredibly simple. It is believed that the preparation of cocktails is a complex process that requires special bar accessories: a shaker, strainer, jigger, and others.

However, even the famous IBA or the International Barmen Association recommends mixing many alcoholic cocktails in a blender. Nowadays, this household appliance can be found in our homes in almost every kitchen.

I bring to your attention a list of the most delicious and easy-to-prepare alcoholic cocktails that you can make in a blender.
