Are the Margarita Man's machines easy to use?

Yes indeed. As simple as making ice tea. We’ll show how to prepare your first batch for you and demonstrate to you how to operate the machine..

We leave simple clear printed instructions. NO ICE!!! NO NOISY BLENDERS!!! NO MESS!!!

How many drinks does one mix yield?

Our Margarita Man gourmet drink mix will make approximately 55 nine-ounce drinks. Our experience shows that usually 50-60% of your guests will drink the frozen drinks even if offered a choice. If more guests are expected, a second machine is strongly recommended otherwise too much demand is put on the one machine and it cannot perform properly. (***Multiple machines discounted.)

Extra mixes are available upon request. All mixes are fully refundable if returned unopened.

How long does the first batch take?

Approximately 2 hours for both chambers. There is no waiting between batches because you add to the drink chamber as you go, preferably before machines beverage reaches the low level indicator line.

Who provides the liquor and how much is needed?

The customer provides all the necessary spirits. A medium strength batch of margaritas calls for 1.75 liters of Tequila and 1.75 liters of Rum for all coladas and daiquiris.

How far in advance should I reserve my machine?

We recommend two weeks and longer for the summer season and longer for traditional party dates like Halloween, Christmas and New Years Eve and Super bowl

Helpful hints:

  • If you have not rented a machine before, you may be surprised to learn that 50-70% of your guests will choose the frozen drinks over beer and wine. This means you can probably get by with providing less beer and wine.
  • Keep margarita machines in the shade during daytime operation.
  • Use dedicated 110V, 15 amp circuit for each machine.
  • Using a cold mix will ensure better output. Ask about chilling techniques with ice.
  • BAG-A-RITA!! Save leftover mix by storing in zipper bags in the freezer for later use.
