A Margaritaville Blender is a Perfect Gift

Updated on March 29, 2013

Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker

I love frozen drinks and have found to replicate the yummy ones I get while I am out, a Margaritaville blender is the only way to go!

I have been a restaurant owner and used the super expensive commercial frozen drink makers and they are awesome, hard to beat. At home, I can use the same drink recipes but the frozen drinks are still not quite as good. The ice is the key to consistency and until the Margaritaville blenders came along, you just couldn't get it right at home.

If you know someone (or even yourself) who loves frozen drinks, a Margaritaville blender is the perfect gift idea!

If you know someone who takes their frozen drinks seriously, this is the perfect gift for them!

Whether spiked or not, you will find the Margaritaville blenders are simply the best for making frozen margaritas and more at home. Stop messing around with blenders that simply weren't designed to handle chopping ice for frozen drinks. The serious frozen drink connoisseur will know you got them the best gift this year when they rip open the package!

Have You Ever...

...tried to make a frozen drink at home with less than perfect results?

Margaritaville Blender:

Take it from a long time bartender, the Margaritaville blenders are the closest to professional margarita machines.

They're perfect for use at home!

margaritaville blender - Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett's song was the inspiration for the blender that makes perfect "frozen concoctions". Whether it's a virgin or spiked version, making a fantastic frozen drink takes more than just a standard blender. You end up with big chunks of ice instead of the nice, smooth consistency you want.

I've made a heck of a lot of frozen drinks in my day. Outside of the commercial machines, the Margaritaville blender is the best product on the market for making frozen drinks.

Why I LOVE the Margaritaville Blender - Highlights of the Margaritaville Blender

  1. The ice reservoir holds enough ice to make two full pitchers of frozen drinks.
  2. No more guess work about the amount of ice needed. The machine does it automatically. Want it thicker? Hit the "shave only" toggle to add more ice and then toggle to blend. Easy as pie no matter what your preference.
  3. Fill the pitcher with drink ingredients, chose the number of drinks to make and start! Whether it's one drink or an entire pitcher, the Margaritaville blender gives you restaurant quality frozen drinks every time.
  4. The blending pitcher is glass to stand up to lots of drink mixing.
  5. The machine is attractive with stainless steel accents.
  6. 1 Year limited warranty from the manufacturer.

Anyone with a Margaritaville Blender will become very popular as a party host!

      Somethings just require a second visit! Or, third or fourth...... LOL I suspect that is exactly the way this blender would be at a party too :)

      You definitely convinced me! Margaritas are my all time favorite drink, but trying to make them is usually a mess and they never turn out right! I drink them anyway.

      ROFLOL!!! Even I have to admit, I am tempted and I don't even drink! Why do I keep hearing "wasting away again in Margaritaville" in my head :) It sounds like a great blender and an absolute must for any party.
