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.

Our Twin bowl machines will make approximately 110 servings of 185mls, that's approximately 55 drinks per side. 

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

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.
