Frozen Cocktail Machines
Question: How much is it to rent a Frozen Cocktail Machine.
Answer: Our prices vary depending on the size of machine you need which is determined by the number of people at your party and the number of hours that people will be getting drinks out of the machine. Please call and talk to one of our party machine professionals so we can help guide you to the machine we think will be just right for your party.
Question: Are the machines easy to use?
Answer: Yes, Very Easy. When you get the machine to wherever you are going to have it during the party you just plug it in, pour in the mix and turn the machine on and that’s it! These machines are VERY expensive, if it was too hard we would not trust the thousands of renters that we have already rented to.
Question: How long does it take to freeze the drinks?
Answer: That depends on the machine you rent. Some take as long as 60 –90 minutes, our higher capacity machines take as little as 30 minutes to freeze.
Question: Can I put the Frozen drink machine outside?
Answer: Yes, as long as you make sure it is in the shade. They definitely work better in a temperature controlled environment.
Question: Do I need to have someone run the machine throughout the party?
Answer: NO WAY! The whole idea of having this machine at your party is to give you a break. Whether you have 50 guests or 300 let the guests pull the handle and get their own drink out. Your guests will have FUN dispensing their own drink and you get to ENJOY your party without having to serve all your guests.
Question: What kind of outlet do I need?
Answer: OK, now this is important. If you rent a 115-volt machine you need a 20-amp outlet. It will plug into any of your outlets at your house BUT you have to make sure the Frozen Cocktail Machine is only plugged into one of your 20 amp outlets. Most houses have about 40 % 20 amp outlets and about 60% 15 amp outlets. These machines pull about 18 amps and HAVE to be on a DEDICATED 20 amp. outlet.
Question: What is a dedicated 115V, 20-amp circuit?
Answer: The electricity in your house runs through circuits identified in your breaker box. Each circuit is usually listed by name. For example, you might have a circuit that serves your kitchen, another for the master bedroom and bath, another for the patio. The Frozen Cocktail Machine must be the ONLY thing drawing electricity off the 20 amp. circuit. If you plug our machine into a 20 amp. patio outlet and then run a warmer or ANY other electrical device, the electricity will get divided between the various appliances and will probably trip your circuit breaker.
Question: I don’t understand electricity that well, what do I do?
Answer: If you do not know how to determine whether or not you have the proper voltage needed, please call us and we will help you. It’s really VERY EASY to determine which plug will work best at your house. All you need is two people, 10 - 15 minutes and a radio. You need to figure out which outlet you can use at least a few days BEFORE your party. I’m sure your house has the necessary electrical requirements needed but it might take a little time to find the outlet that will be adequate for the frozen drink machine. Please call us if you have any questions regarding any electrical concerns.
Question: Do you sell the mix?
Answer: Yes our mixes are very popular with our renters. We sell a Margarita Mix, Strawberry Margarita, Mango Margarita, Daiquiri and Pina Colada Mix. All the mixes are VERY good.
Question: Do you provide the alcohol? Do the mixes contain alcohol?
Answer: No, and no. You must purchase the alcohol yourself. We provide a product that mixes well with tequila, rum or whatever liquor you choose.
Question: How hard is it to make your Margaritas?
Answer: It’s very easy to make our mixed drinks, we even loan you a six gallon mixing bucket with a spigot to make it in. We will have the recipe printed out for you when you pick up the machine. All you have to do is follow the easy instruction (pour water, our mix and your alcohol into to our bucket and stir your done!).
Question: Can I use my own recipe?
Answer: You can but we prefer that you use our mix for several reasons.
1. We won’t guarantee your mix will freeze properly since we have never tested it.
2. We will buy back any unopened margarita mixes that you buy from us. We can give you a good estimate of how many of our ½ gallon 3 to 1 concentrate mixes you will need but it's always nicer to get one or two extra “just in case”. No one wants to run out of something at their own party.
3. A selfish reason I know but – I know our mix tastes good, but I’m not so sure about yours. Our machines advertise and represent our business every time they are at a party – If they're not clean, working properly OR not producing a good tasting product (even if it's not ours) your guests (our potential future customers) will not consider taking one of our business cards because of it. Your guests “assume” that the mix coming out of our machine was provided by the rental company so I want that Margarita or Daiquiri to taste even better than you do because our livelihood depends on it.
Question: Do I have to clean the machine?
Answer: All the renter needs to do is run warm fresh water through the machine at the end of the party until water coming out of the spigot is clear and wipe the machine down with a damp cloth. The machine should be returned looking as clean as when you got it without taking it apart. When we get the machine back we have to take it apart, thoroughly clean and sanitize it before it can go out again.
