How long does it take to set up the Slushee machine? The machine is easy to set up. Best of all we will set it up for you and have you ready to go (Ready to drink) in about 2 hours, we recommend that you have the machine ready to go when you start to prepare for your party as that’s thirsty work.
How much alcohol should I put in? That’s up to you most people put in between 1-2 bottles of liquor per cocktail mix depending on how strong you would like it to be. We recommend putting in about 1/2 of what you are initially thinking then taste and decide if you want more. At a rough guide, 1 x 700ml bottle of spirits is equivalent to 1/2 nip per cup hence 2 x 700ml bottles of spirits is close to1 nip per cup.
How do I work the machine? When your machine is delivered it will be set up for you and we will give you some simple instructions to follow. Video instructions here.
Do you sell Cups and straws? Yes you can purchase cups and straws, we have 250ml Bio Cups and Jumbo paper straws to make it easier to drink your Slushee they come in Pkts of 100 . Paper Straws $6.60, Bio cups $16.20 or together $22.00. We recommend the smaller cups as there is less chance that your slushies will melt before you finish drinking them and less chance that they will be thrown away.
Can I purchase an extra Slushee mixture so I don't run out? Yes, we are happy to supply you with an extra mix if you think you need it we will even repurchase it from you if you don’t use it, as long as it hasn’t been opened.
