Is ice required?
No. The machine freezes the slushy/cocktail itself. If you add ice it will break the turning pedal in the machine resulting in a $400.00 replacement cost.
How long does it take to freeze?
It normally takes around an hour and a half to two hours for the slushy/cocktail to mix depending on the outside temperature. One side will freeze before the other.
How much alchool is required?
We recommend 1 standard 700ml spirit bottle per 5 litres of cocktail prepared. This will provide cocktails with 5.2% alcohol content. If you add more alcohol the cocktail may not freeze properly as alcohol doesn’t freeze.
How many litres does each side contain?
Each bowl contains 10 litres of slushy/cocktail. So a twin bowl machine can hold 20 litres at a time. If you get a 40 litres package, all you need to do is top up the machine as the party goes on.
How do I add more slushy/cocktail?
Lift the light box on the top of the machine and pour the ready slushy/cocktail straight in. Keep topping it up during the party. Don’t wait until the bowl is empty because it will take aonther hour for the slushy/cocktail to freeze again.
How many drinks do 20 litres make?
If you use a standard 200ml cup you will able to make about 110 drinks (this includes 10% expansion in the frozen slushy/cocktail)
What power outlet is needed for the machine?

Do I need to wash the machine?

Where can the machine be placed?
The cocktail machine must be placed on top of a sturdy table, as it is over 80Kg when filled with the slushie/cocktail.
