Frequently Asked Questions


What's the difference between a Slushie machine and a Daiquri Machine?

There is no difference between a Slushie (Slushee or Slushy) machine, cocktail machine or daiquri machine, they are all the same thing just called different names depending on the company or what other people know them as.

 

 How many drinks does it make

Our Twin bowl machines will make 12 litres per side; with our serving size of 200mls you should get approximately 60 serves per side, That's 120 x 200ml drinks. 

 

 

Can I purchase extra Slushie or Cocktail mixes?

Yes you can! You don't want to run out half way through your party, so you can add extra mixes to the machine during your party. Additional pre-mixes are available for both the kids and/or Adults at a unbelievable price of just $30.00, and at these prices, why wouldn’t you add 1 or 2. You can choose from our  Adult Cocktail Range and our Kids Flavours Range. Please also note that if you do not use the extra mix, don't worry we will take it back and refund you for it.

 

Can I make one side with alcohol and the other side without alcohol?

Yes! you can choose flavours from both the Kids and Adults selection! Have one side filled from the Adult's selection ready to add alcohol (if you wish) or if your not adding alcohol, simply choose from either the Kids or Adults selection for a refreshing taste that all will enjoy.

 

What PERCENTAGE of alcohol volume would our Cocktails end up being!

1 x 700mls of Alcohol approx equates to 3 - 3.5% Alcoholic Cocktail
1 x 1 Ltr of Alcohol approx equates to 4 - 4.5% Alcoholic Cocktails
ALSO NOTE: Alcohol doesn't freeze, so the more alcohol you add to our premix flavours the longer it will take to "slush up" or if too much added over our suggested it may not freeze at all.

 

How long will it take to get all icy and ready to drink?

Your slushie machine will have your mix all iced up and ready to enjoy in approx 1 to 2 hours! But it is dependant on the conditions placed in. For best results do not have in the following...a cramped area or no ventilation or non air conditioned area.

Cocktail Machine Hire

 

If the liquid runs out during the night, can we add our own cordial or soft drink to the cocktail machine?

No, PLEASE DON'T add your own mix to the cocktail machines. All our Cocktail and Kids pre mixes require a specially formulated mix so that it freezes at the right consistency. If you add your own mix it may not freeze at all, or it might freeze too much and break the gear box in the cocktail machine, and you would then be liable for the repairs.

If you are concerned that you may run out of cocktail mix during the night, you can order extra refills for your cocktail machine. If you don’t open them and don’t use them, you wont be charged for them.

 

What are my Payment Options?

You can pay for your order online by credit/debit card or Pay Pal during the Online Booking Process, you can also pay by Direct Debit or Cash on Delivery if you wish.

 

When will equipment be delivered?
