3. Ingredients-Please only use the BEST ingre­dients-the top of the line. You would not buy cheap meat when cooking a steak. Use top brands-they make top cocktails.

Short History of the Blender
Waring, universally known for introducing the first blender to American consumers, is one of today's leading manufacturers of professional-quality, small appliances for the home, foodservice, and laboratory industries. The company was acquired on May 9, 1998, by Conair Corporation, which also owns Cuisinart.
Although the company is named after Fred Waring, a popular entertainer of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, Waring did not actually invent the blender. He did, however, perfect the original version and introduce this version to retailers and consumers-which ultimately became a big success. Waring history has it that in 1936, Fred Waring had just finished a radio broadcast in New York's Vanderbilt Theater when Fred Osius, dressed in outlandish striped pants, a cutaway coat, and a bright lemon-yellow tie, approached the entertainer with his latest invention. Osius was looking for someone to finance a new mixer that would "revolutionize people's eating habits."
Waring was intrigued with the concept of a mixer such as the one Osius described, and he agreed to back the new product, even when the prototype failed to work the first time. Six months and $25,000 later, the prototype still didn't work. However, Waring remained enthusiastic and with his support the engineering and production problems were solved in time to introduce the new "Miracle Mixer" (as it was then called) at the National Restaurant Show in Chicago in 1937.
Thanks to Waring's own promotion of the blender on the radio and through a singing group aptly named "The Waring Blendors," the blender became a permanent fixture in restaurants and bars. It wasn't long before consumers decided that they needed blenders in their kitchens as well. Ultimately, department- and specialty-store sales increased, and the blender became a house­hold appliance for home chefs.
World War II temporarily halted blender production, but in 1946, sales took off again as consumer demand grew. Product innovations continued, with the introduction of color-coordinated blenders and attachments that crushed ice and ground coffee. Solid-state controls were among the most significant product changes. In the 1950s, new uses for the blender were constantly emerging, including applications in research laboratories. In fact, Dr. Jonas Salk used a Waring blender with an Aseptic Dispersal Container attachment to develop his lifesaving polio vaccine.
During the late 1960s, design and engineering breakthroughs by Waring led to the creation of a more versatile blender that was more effi­cient and widely affordable. While maintaining its leadership in the blender market, Waring capitalized on its strong brand recognition and expanded its product line with a broad range of fine-quality kitchen appliances.
Fred Waring died in 1984, but his vision for a top-quality blender lives on as Waring continues to manufacture an innovative line of top-performance blenders for the home and for commercial use.
