Frozen slush drinks, made with or without alcohol, are a refreshing treat commonly served at parties and carnivals. Since frozen drink machines can cost over $1,000, you may not want to buy your own machine for a one-time event, especially if you won't be selling the drinks. Renting a slush machine is a much less expensive alternative, and these rentals often come with the drink mix and other supplies that you'll need to serve frozen drinks at your party.
Decide on the type of slush you want for your party. There are a variety of different frozen drink companies that offer coffee drinks, fruit drinks and mixes for alcoholic beverages such as daiquiris and margaritas.
Search for the appropriate drink machine rental company in your area. You can do this by going to a Website such as Margarita Man or Party Pop and entering your zip code or browsing by state to find listings of nearby rental sites. (See Resources 1 and 2)
Click on the link for your rental location. Depending on the vendor, you can reserve a slush machine by filling out and submitting an online form or calling the vendor.
