Lt. Blender AKA Ralph McMorris
by Andrew Chalk
This is Ralph McMorris, better known as Lt. Blender. He got that name because, when he served in the U.S. Army, he was the only one with a blender during one tour of duty. When it broke, he improvised by making margaritas in a bag. That made him very popular. He parlayed his drink making skills into Lt. Blender’s drink mixes. In case you think that an entrepreneur’s life consists solely of jetting around in private planes like one of the Sharks, ask Mark Cuban what it was like when he started, selling door-to-door. Or Barbara Corcoran what it was like waiting tables in NYC. In a similar vein, below is Lt. Blender’s one and only production facility. It is situated in a Victorian house near the Galveston historic district.

On a recent media trip, Ralph showed us around, explaining how he creates his all natural margarita mix and piña colada mix. When you buy it, you just open the bag. Poor in tequila to the line shown in the transparent panel on the bag. Then triple-sec. Shake and freeze. After 4-6 hours remove from the freezer and drink, directly from the bag if you want. We tried the margaritas and can report that they tasted great.
Business is booming, with contracts at Sam’s Club and Walmart just agreed. Plus, there is a chance he will be on the next series of Shark Tank. Watch out for Lt. Blender!
