Q. What is in the standard service package ?
A. In addition to the machine we provide the table, festive "theme" table cloths, cups, salt, straws and napkins for $15.00. Our mixes are made from REAL fruit juices (not that yucky syrup!) and come in five gallon buckets. The mixes average $45.00 per five gallon bucket. There is an average $45.00 delivery fee (depending on location). The machine weighs approximately 180 pounds, the dimensions are 18x24x24 . They are quiet and can be operated inside without annoying noise to disrupt your party. NO ice is needed!
Q. Are the machines easy to use?
A. Yes indeed! We mix your first batch and show you how to use the machine. We leave clear printed instructions.
Q. How many drinks does one batch yield?
A. One batch makes approximately 40 ten oz. drinks. Our experience shows that usually more than half of guests drink a frozen drink if you offer a choice. We recommend one batch for every 25 guests. We provide extra mix in case of higher than expected consumption however, we only charge for what you use.
Q. How long does it take to freeze?
A. We are the ONLY company in Nashville with immediate freeze machines! Outside, on a very hot day, may take up to ten minutes - inside, approximately eight minutes. There is NO "downtime" in between batches, the reservoir tank light will flash when it is time to add more mix. One machine will deliver consistently frozen drinks for up to 100 guests.
Q. Does the machine require any special power?
A. No, however a machine requires a DEDICATED outlet. Each machine pulls 16 amps of power, so nothing else can be plugged in.
Q. Who provides the liquor and how much will I need?
A. Due to TN state law, the customer provides all the liquor (and hopefully a designated driver! ). Each batch of margaritas calls for 1.75 liter of tequila and .750 ML of triple sec per batch. (You don't need expensive tequila because our mix is soooo good!) Each batch of rum /vodka drinks requires two .750 ML per batch.
Q. Are other drinks available?
A. ABSOLUTELY! Although we specialize in Margaritas ~ We also offer Daiquiris, Pina Coladas, Peach Bellinis, Passion Fruit, Hurricanes, "Cruzan Confusion", Rum Runners, Orange Dream Scicle, Razberry, Mangoritas ( a HUGE hit!) and Strawberry Ritas. ALL can be made as non-alcoholic fruit slushies for kids.
Q. How far in advance should I reserve my machine?
A. We recommend at LEAST one month in the spring and summer seasons, and for traditional party dates like Cinco De Mayo, July 4th, Halloween, Christmas and New Years.
