 101 Blender Drinks - KIM HAASARUD
Nothing cools down a hot summer day like an icy beverage straight from the blender. Whether you're lounging at the pool or barbecuing in the backyard, the perfect cold concoction can turn any summer day into a celebration. Frozen daiquiris and margaritas are par for the course, but there's so much more you can do with your blender. In 101 Blender Drinks, Kim Haasarud, the Liquid Chef, provides a bevy of sophisticated and fun ideas for mixing up some icy refreshment. All the classics are included, but why not try some new creations? Get your daily dose of fruit with a Papaya Zinger. Or try a Jasmine Peach Bellini made with Prosecco and jasmine tea syrup.  KIM HAASARUD is the founder of Liquid Architecture (Liquid-Architecture.com), a beverage consulting firm that creates specialty cocktails for clients such as the Four Seasons Maui, Wyndham Worldwide Hotels, Moet Hennessy, and SKYY Spirits. She conceives her signature cocktails much as an Alice Waters or a Wolfgang Puck would create a specialty dish, taking inspiration from market-fresh, high-quality ingredients. Kim's liquid cuisine has stirred up a huge following, and her cocktails have appeared in publications ranging from the Wall Street Journal to Wine Enthusiast to Cosmopolitan. Kim is also the author of 101 Champagne Cocktails, 101 Martinis, 101 Margaritas, and 101 Sangrias and Pitcher Drinks.

Ron Kuhlman "Adventure Travel"
Hello, and welcome to ShoreLines. I’m Ron Kuhlman, the Vice President of Tourism Marketing and Sales for the Virginia Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau, and I get to “Live the Life” every day. I am one lucky guy! I live, work and play in one of the greatest resort cities in the world. I could easily go on and on about what an awesome place Virginia Beach is…I could rave about our miles of clean beaches, fun attractions and great restaurants. Or share tips about the best fishing areas and which parks have camping and hiking. Sure, I could give advice on which golf courses to play or talk a mean streak about our area’s great history. OK, I can’t resist this one: did you know Capt. John Smith came ashore in Virginia Beach in 1607 before moving on to settle in Jamestown? It’s true and it’s a fascinating story…see what I mean? I just can’t stop myself! That’s why we’ve created a blog; there’s a lot about Virginia Beach to share and our new ShoreLines blog is the perfect forum.
