How many mixes do I need?

First mix is provided with your party drink machine rental! Some of you can drink a path through a swimming pool so the numbers in the chart are approximate. One alcoholic mix makes 5 gallons. That’s about seventy 9 oz glasses! (non-alcoholic mixes makes 4 gallons)

How much ice do I need to add to the machine?

No ice! We add the ingredients to the mix and the machine does all the work. The frozen drink machine just needs an electrical outlet.

What happens if I don't use all the mixes?

The machine is delivered to the location of the party. We’ll bring the mixes you ordered (first one free with rental). You’ll just have to make sure you have the other ingredients for your desired drinks.

How far in advance should I order a frozen drink machine?

To ensure you have the best frozen drinks at your party, it’s best to call and book as soon as possible. If you give us a call and we have machines available, then we can deliver and have drinks in your guests’ hands within a few hours.

Are the frozen drink machines easy to use?

Yes! If you’ve ever poured a Slurpee or soft-serve ice cream, you know how easy it is. We’ll also do a demonstration for you when we setup your machine.

Can these machines be used for kid's parties?

Yes! Any of our drink flavors can be served non-alcoholic for adult or kid’s events as slushies. These machines are great for quinceaneras, birthday parties, church lock-ins, and school events. Ideal Party Drinks is an approved vendor for Mesquite ISD.

What do we do with the machine when the party is over?

Please switch the machine off and unplug it. You may also want to empty the remaining frozen drink mix and keep it in your freezer so you can enjoy a refreshing drink later.
