What Do I Need To Supply?
A sturdy table close to an electrical outlet and liquor if desired. If you don't have a table we offer attractive stands and skirts. Each machine draws almost 20 amps and needs a dedicated 110 volt circuit. If an alcoholic drink is desired, you will need about 3 liters of liquor (Tequila, Rum, Vodka) and about 1/2 liter of flavored liqeur (Triple Sec, Amaretto, Malibu, etc.) per keg. All of the liquor for all kegs must be present at the time of delivery. No Ice Required!
When Do I Have To Refill It?
Never! You mix and setup once, and then you are done! There's no constant mixing and no refilling! Our patented machines do all of the work for you so you can entertain your guests and be the host with the most!
How Fast Can I Pour Drinks?
Once you hit the button, you can pour your first drink in about 8 minutes! Once frozen, the pouring capacity is 2-3 ten-ounce drinks per minute, with an estimated hourly maximum of about 100 drinks. If the drinks are poured faster than this, the machine will not have time to stay frozen and the drinks may come out liquidy. If this happens, don't pour for 4 or 5 minutes and it will be ready again! Assigning a "Margarita Monitor" can sometimes help. They will quickly be the most popular at the party!
How Many Flavors Can I Pour With One Machine?
One flavor per machine.
When Will You Deliver?
We'll contact you 2-3 days prior to your party to schedule a mutually convenient 2 hour delivery window. In most instances, the delivery will be made the day of the party. Pick-up is usually the next day. Same day pickups are additional.
How Big Are The Machines?
About the size of a microwave, but they weight 175 pounds! They are 12"W x 24"H x 24"D and require a total counter or table depth of at least 25" front to back.
What's a 20 Amp 110 Volt Dedicated Circuit & Who Cares Anyways?
The electricity is the most important variable that you supply. "110 Volt" refers to the electricity in standard outlets. "20 Amp" refers to the size of the breaker switch that turns your outlet on and off at your breaker box. Breakers are individually labeled with their amperage. 15 Amp breaker will not be sufficient. "Dedicated Circuit" means that there are not other large electrical appliances or heavy amperage drawing items (toaster, microwave, air conditioner, refrigerator, or electric oven/stove) on the same breaker. These items take away electricity that the margarita machines need to operate properly!
Can I Use An Extension Cord?
Yes and No. If you are not able to put the machine right next to an outlet, our drivers carry a few super heavy duty extension cords up to 20 feet. We can not use your "heavy duty orange cord" because it is too small. Our machines require a minimum 3 wire 12 gauge cord.
