We Now Own The Margaritaville Mixed Drink Maker


Introducing the best invention to happen to mixed drinks since the plastic cup.... the Margaritaville Mixed Drink Maker

What is it?

At the touch of the button, the Mixed Drink Maker serves up 48 different cocktails(16 options per liquor type), from a Hurricane Punch to a Tropical Rita.

How does it work?

Spin the center wheel and choose the cocktail that grabs your fancy, push the center button and the drink is dispensed in a matter of seconds. All you need is a cup!

Not sure what you want….

Give the “I Feel Lucky” button a whirl. Watch as the digital display spins and then lands on a random drink. Don’t like that choice – Spin again!

And it’s no trouble to make a double, just press down once on the Drink Strength switch and out comes a “strong pour.”

How do I get started?

To set it up, just fill the four tanks with liquor (rum, vodka or tequila), cranberry juice, orange juice & sour mix. The machine knows what to do from there.

It mixes, you mingle.

Key Features: 
  • Product includes: 4 liquid tanks (color coded) with matching caps, drink chute, basin and basin cover, machine base with digital display (the brains), drip tray and cover. The Instruction Manual covers all the “ins & outs” with a list of the 48 different cocktails available.
  • Each drink is an 8oz. pour of deliciousness. Recommended cup would be 14-16oz. in size. Add ice to keep your drink cool. 
  • Digital display shows the ingredients of each drink. The center wheel guides the display and the center button dispenses the drink. Just don’t forget a cup! 
  • I Feel Lucky button is like a Vegas roulette wheel, press the button and the display will spin. The machine will randomly land a drink. If you like the drink press the center button and the drink will be mixed up in seconds. Again, just don’t forget the cup! 
  • Strong pour selector, adds an additional ounce of alcohol to the drink and reduces the mixers by an ounce, keeping it an 8oz drink, now with a little extra kick! 
  • Basin & drink chute are dishwasher safe. Remaining parts, it is recommended they be washed by hand.
