FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How much does it cost to rent a frozen margarita machine from Margarita-Mania?
A: The rental price ranges from $139.00 to $219.00, depending on the date. This includes delivery in the Georgetown, Round Rock, and Austin areas, setup, pickup, your first bottle of mix concentrate, use of our 5 gallon pre-measured mixing bucket, a cart to place the machine on, cups, straws, and margarita salt (With a salt rimmer).
Q: Are the machines easy to use?
A: VERY easy! We mix your first batch and show you how to use the machine. We leave clear printed instructions, plus our after hours cell phone number. No ice needed.
Q: How many drinks does one batch make?
A: One batch of traditional margaritas makes about 70, 8 oz. drinks. Our experience shows that usually half or more guests drink the frozen drinks even if you offer a choice. We recommend one batch for every 25 guests. Extra mixes are $20.00 - $30.00 each and are refundable if unopened.
Q: How long does the first batch take to freeze?
A: About 45 minutes if the machine is indoors (Approximately 75ºF); A little longer if it's outdoors and warmer. No waiting between batches.
Q: Who provides liquor, and how much will I need?
A: The customer must provide all the liquor. A medium strength batch of traditional margaritas calls for 3 liters of tequila. Most other flavors use 2 liters of liquor per batch. Ask for other recipes or visit our recipes page.
Q: Are other types of drinks available?
A: Absolutely. You can serve strawberry daquiris, strawberry margaritas, piña coladas, rum runners, Louisiana hurricanes, tropical punch, goombay smash, raspberry margaritas, go mango, mudslides, banana daquiris, peach bellinis, and summertime lemonade. All mixes can be made without liquor for kids!
Q: How far in advance should I reserve my frozen margarita machine(s)?
A: We recommend at least 3 weeks for a Saturday night rental from April through October and December. Make sure the number of guests does not exceed the drink making capacity for each machine, otherwise the machine will not perform properly. Ask about our multi-machine rental discounts!
Q: What do I need when you deliver the machine?
A: When we deliver your machine(s), we will need to speak with whoever will be responsible for operation of the machine(s). We will make your first batch of mix and make sure the machine is set up and operating properly, when we will give you the operation instructions. Gratuities for the delivery are not required, but are appreciated.
