How do we work out which slushie machine hire package is right for our party?
There are 3 types of slushie machines available for hire, including single, double and triple bowls. When choosing which machine is best for you, it is a good idea to calculate how many guests you would like to serve. Each bowl will make approximately 60 frozen drinks. It is usually a good idea to cater for two servings per guest. Some may not drink the cocktails, but some guests may drink more than two slushie. So for a party of 90 guests, you would consider a triple bowl machine hire, which will make 180 drinks.
Why are there so many names for a slushie machine? Do the machines all do the same thing or do they differ, and if so, can you explain the difference please.
This is perhaps the most commonly asked question. Yes, they are all the same thing. The industry and customers just use different words to describe the machines. These include:
Slushie machine- basically means a frozen icy drink without alcohol. However, most people use this term to describe the machine and they add alcohol to the slushie drink.
Daiquiri machine- usually refers to a frozen drink that contains rum. In our opionion, a daquiri machine is probably the best way to describe the machines, because daiquri’s have always been an alcoholic beverage made with crushed ice and fruit, and the machines were invented to produce ready made daiquiri’s.
Frozen Cocktail machine- A cocktail is traditionally served in a liquid form in most cocktails, however people often use this term to describe the machines because the word “cocktail” is more popular and some cocktails do have crushed ice in them, like the Mojito.
Margarita machine- This description is more of an American term used to describe the machine. Americans have a big affiliation with Margarita’s, and especially frozen margaritas, so they commonly use this to describe the machines.
Slurpee machine- The term slurpee machine is basically a brand name invented by the 7 Eleven company. Many people use this to describe the machines as the slurpee brand is very familiar in Australia, and people are use to calling a frozen icy drink a “slurpee”
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter which word you use to describe them, they all mean the same thing. All our mixes come as non alcoholic, and you can add alcohol if you wish.
