It's always a good time for a frothy, smooth, tangy frozen margarita...it's just too much work. Here, we take a look at three great machines that'll have you "wastin' away again" without wasting your time. These are, absolutely, three of the best.
Margaritaville Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker with No Brainer Mixer
This takes the headache out of frozen drinks. With a top-mounted ice reservoir, stainless steel ice shaving blade mounted safely inside the machine, and variably separate cycles for Ice-shave, drink-blend, or automatic shave and blend functions, there's no problem getting the results you want. The blender pitcher, a voluminous 36 ounces, has handy measuring guidelines to make mixology more fun than science. All parts are dishwasher safe, so cleanup is a cinch. At $154.95 this machine offers everything you need, wants for nothing, and leaves money for you to go in for some 'top-shelf' ingredients.
Nostalgia Electrics 64-Ounce Margarita and Slush Maker
Looking for a simple, inexpensive, charming addition to your home bar or private oasis? This might be what you're looking for. The patented blade design ensure 'clump-free' slush each and every time, ensuring you get nothing but a beautifully blended smooth libation celebrate those lazy summer days.
Now get a taste of this, the Nostalgia Electronics model comes with a travel case and carrying straps...so the party goes with you! 64 ounce capacity, ready travel, smooth and fresh and cold. $46.88 is almost nothing to pay for a product of tis quality. Perhaps it lacks the fancy bells and whistles of machines that could cost you over $200, but frankly when the order of the day is a frosty frozen beverage and a lazy summer breeze, who wants bells and whistles?
Margaritaville Mixed Drink Maker
You knew it was coming. The drink machine that makes you giddy just to look at. Load up your choice of alcohol, I believe they say "pick-yer-poison", then fill the other canisters with mixers. Withe the push of a button, your machine knows what you have at hand. Then choose from over 15 different drink options, including ice or 'up', and by pushing a button the machine does the work. The 'wow factor' cannot be understated. Just be careful that your robot bartender doesn't become the main attraction at your parties. It is the ultimate in home beverage concoct-er/dispensers...nothing else comes close.
Yeah yeah, it's $399.00, but you already knew that. Put out a little robotic tip-jar and it'll pay for itself once your friends have 'had a few'.
By the way, fill the 'liquor dispenser' with another mixer for a kid friendly drink machine!
C'mon, we're talking about margarita machines... as long as they work, they are a good thing right? It's up to you. Do you want a simple, portable machine that does what it promises? (namely shaving and blending ice) or something a bit more elaborate? The Margaritaville Mixer is the best thing going, and if you want your friends to be absolutely be blown away, then that's the way to go. All three machines reliably blend your ice to a smooth velvety foam, they mix in your additions and give you great results...but we are talking about a party after all, so the fun-factor cannot be ignored. Oil up, get some tunes playin', call a few friends, and get the party started, these truly are the best!
