Vitamix models... How do you choose?

Keep it simple, I do not see the need for a preset. I have been using my Vita mix for about 15 years, I too have the dry container which I bought later, and do not use as often as I though I would. It does do a great job with grinding nuts for raw cooking. But my original vitamix is used all the time. My favorite for hot soups, fruit smoothies, hummus, and just about any kind of sauce. I make soup out of leftovers with fresh veggies added. It is fantastic for making creamy soups and sauces with out any cream, ie. blending beans or potatoes for savory dishes. Cleaning is a breeze too.

I think this sounds delicious, I have had the Elderflower liquor in a Martini,very good. This combination sounds perfect! I like your glasses, I have the same ones!

Polynesian Cocktail Party

This sounds Delicious, ever since having Mai Tai's in Hawaii a couple of years ago, and Mai Tai's at Trader Vic's in Palo Alto, Ca. I have been searching for recipes to replicate it! I will try this one out as soon as I can !
