Before you go shopping, make sure you know what you are looking for in a margarita machine. Many options on the market can do much more than just blend your favorite ingredients. Consider the following before making your purchase:

What Do You Want To Make

Consider whether you are planning on just serving margaritas or if you plan on making additional drink types like daiquiris, piña coladas, smoothies or more. For some, making a batch of margaritas that will serve a party is just what they are looking for. However, others may want the option to serve a variety of mixed drinks.

If you are planning to make drinks with fresh fruit like smoothies, frozen strawberry margaritas, or a delicious banana daiquiri, make sure your machine has the blending power to handle it all. If you plan on something simpler with liquid ingredients, like in a skinny margarita, you may not need the blending power.


Consider how many people you plan on serving. If this will be used for large gatherings, it may be worth investing in something with a large capacity so that you don't have to spend all your time behind the bar.


If you are planning on using this for a party or a large get together, make sure your machine is easy to operate. The last thing you want to do is spend all your time working when you could be enjoying yourself. Understanding functions and features of the machine, as well as things like how much ice it needs, and if it keeps drinks fresh for very long, are all good things to keep in mind when prepping for your next party.
