After all the running around and jumping on our awesome jumping castles, all kids and adults need to hydrate. For grown-ups, how about offering delicious pre-made frozen margarita or daiquiri to your guests at your backyard birthday party? Either way, the best way to cool down in the hot Cairns weather is hiring a slushie machine to serve a delicious icy treat for your guests.

Our commercial slushie machine (also known as cocktail machine or daiquiri machine) allows for a different flavour per each bowl. Just choose two of the flavours that you want to have for a drink. It takes approximately 2-4 hours for the slushie to be ready for drinking when it is set up. Each bowl contains approximately 50 serves. ​

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the safety requirements for set-up?
We require access to water (key slushie ingredient), electricity and a space for the machine that must always be out of the weather elements. Our machines can weigh around 100kg when full so they are required to be placed on a sturdy table - they must not be placed on a plastic trestle table. If you wish for the machines to sit on a bench or table please ensure they can withstand the weight as you are responsible for any damages caused to the machines.

What percentage of alcohol volume are your alcoholic cocktails?
To make mid-strength cocktails (3.6% – 3.8% alc/vol), use 2L of slushie mix + 1L of spirits (at 37.5% alc/vol) + 8L of water.
To make full-strength cocktails (4.9% – 5.2% alc/vol), 2L of slushie mix + 1.4L of spirits (at 37.5% alc/vol) + 7.5L of water.
Please note: Alcohol doesn’t freeze so the more alcohol you add to the premix the longer it will take to turn into a frozen beverage. However, if you add more than we have suggested above, it may not freeze at all. So, remember to add the right amount and drink responsibly!

How long will the slushie take to be icy and ready to drink?
Your slushie machine will take approximately 2-4 hours to fully slush up. Keep in mind that the freeze time depends on the ambient conditions. If the ambient temperature exceeds 30°C, the freeze time can be longer than the average 2-4 hours. In temperatures over 35°C it may not be possible to achieve the desired frozen slushie consistency. For the best and fastest results keep it in a well ventilated or air-conditioned area. Please do not put machines in direct sunlight and they must always be under cover/out of the elements.

Can I make one side alcoholic and one side non-alcoholic?
Yes, you can! We have a range of different flavour selections that all taste great as a mocktail slushie. You decide to add your own alcohol to the bowl/s of your choice. We do however suggest labelling the alcoholic side, just to be safe!

Can we order more slushie or cocktail mix to have on hand just in case?
Absolutely! We can provide extra bottles of slushie mix for each flavour you order. If you don’t end up using them, we will collect them with no charge. When the installer arrives to set up your machine they will show you how to refill the machine.

If we run out of drinks, can we just add our own cordial or soft drink?
In short – strictly no! Please do not add your own mix to the slushie machines as all our pre-mixes are specially formulated to blend perfectly and at the right consistency. If you add your own mixture it may not freeze at all and may cause our machines to burn out/have a mechanical fault. If this does occur because something not permitted was added to the machine, you will be liable for the repair costs - and no-one wants that.
