A while back, we were were given the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker as a gift by family that knows our passion for the cocktail. After just a few uses, we were extremely pleased with the overall functionality and quality of drinks it produces. This is a lot more than your standard counter top blender as it includes technology and features that make it ideal for any frozen margarita enthusiast.
After adding your desired ingredients, the device basically does everything for you with a quick press of a button. The shave option in the ice compartment creates consistent restaurant style frozen margaritas every time. A second blade at the bottom of the blender is perfect for blending fruit additions and finalizing the drinks consistency. A great feature of this extreme blender is the compartment on the back that captures excess water so it does not mix into your margarita creating a watery mess.
The only negative of this machine is its size. It is a little on the tall side and does not fit under our cabinets unless the lid is removed. We did find a spot on the counter where we have quick access to the machine while not getting in the way of other kitchen items.
Overall the Margaritaville margarita maker is a great addition to our home. We have yet to find a blender that can make margaritas of this consistency. When we invite friends and family over they line up next to it with their empty glasses.
