FAQ

COCKTAIL SLUSHIES

Can I see a picture of your machines?

Sure. Head over to our COCKTAIL SLUSHIES page.

Do you sell slushie machines?

We are a certified UK stockist of the Ugolini MT2 slushie machine and we can offer next day delivery on this item. Contact us for prices.

If I use your mix, what else do I need to add to the machine?

Our mixes are perfectly crafted for use in our slushie machines. If you are using alcohol, this is the only other thing that you should add. Nothing else should be added.

How many drinks will I get from each 5 litre can of your mix?

This will depend on how much alcohol you add to the machine with our mix and the size of the cup you decide to use.

Assuming you add 1 bottle (70cl) of alcohol to the machine, you will achieve a minimum of 25 drinks if you use our recommended 8oz cup.

When ice freezes, it expands. In our experience, this will lead to a 5% increase in the number of drinks you will achieve. We look at this as a bonus, but we wouldn’t recommend that you factor this in to your costings.

Do you supply cups & straws?

Not directly, but we recommend a company called Party Plastics. In particular, we recommend their 8oz cup, seen here:

They also sell thick straws which work well. Enter PPA-Straws-SM-PK in to their Search box.

Can you offer bespoke flavours for our event?

We have done this in the past and we will always do our best to help you with this. Please get in touch and we’d love to hear about your specific requirement.

Can I have a taste of your mixtures?

Drop us a line, and we’d be glad to tell you who your closest stockist would be. If that won’t work, we’ll endeavour to get a sample out to you.

Can you offer any support with menus and/or point of sale?

Yes. We work with some great designers and we have some great POS we can help you with. Please give us as much notice as possible to allow for the inevitable print lead times.

How is your slush mix packaged?

Our blends are made to order and we fill them into 5 litre cans. We package 2 or 4 cans per box.

Do I add ice to the machine?

Please do not do this as it may lead to damage to the machine! The liquid mixture in each chamber is mixed around and comes in to contact with a frozen cylinder. This slowly creates the ice and brings the mixture to the optimum consistency.

How many cans of mix do your machines hold?

Our blends are packaged in 5 litre cans. Each machine has 2 x 10 litre chambers.

To fill both chambers of the machine, you should add 2 x 5 litre cans as well as your alcohol. Although this exceeds 10 litres, we have successfully tested this.

How much alcohol should I add?

Our preferred quantity of spirit to add is 1L. This is 1.5 bottles of spirit (70cl per bottle).
As a minimum, we recommend adding 1 bottle (70cl) of spirit.

How long does the mix take to freeze down?

Shortest time is 28 minutes. Please allow for between 35 and 50 minutes.

Factors affecting time it will take to bring machine down to temperature:

-Temperature of mixture when it was emptied in to the machine. The colder the mix is to start with – the quicker it will take to freeze.

-External temperature. Not much you can do about this, although you should always allow at least 15cm of space all around the machine so that the refrigeration components can run at their optimum.

What kind of power supply do your machines use?

Regular UK plug.

What is the shelf-life of your blends?

Our blends have an ambient shelf-life of 60 days. Ambient assumes a temperature of 20 degrees. Storing our mix chilled will extend this by approximately 10 further days.

Do I need to keep your mix in the fridge?

Not necessarily, although your mix will stay fresher and last longer if you do. Chilled mixture will also freeze more quickly in the machine which will help during busy periods.

Can I freeze your mix?

Yes, and we encourage this if it will prevent waste. Please allow sufficient time to defrost in time for when you next need the mix.

Where can I buy your blends?

From us! We manufacture our blends and sell direct.

How will you deliver?

We use a direct chilled courier to deliver (within London). Outside of London, we use direct couriers as far as possible and occasionally we use UPS.

How do you accept payment?

We will send you an invoice which you can pay directly using a secure online payment portal (provided by Sage Pay), or you can pay via BACS.

What are the dimensions of your machines, how much do they weigh what are the power requirements?

COCKTAIL BLENDS

Questions relating to our cocktail blends, packaged in glass bottles.
(No slush machine required).

What size are the glass bottles you use?

75cl and we package 6 bottles to a case.

We can’t use glass at our event, can you package your blends any other way?

Absolutely, we can package in plastic 5 litre cans. Back of house, you can use our cans to refill store n pours for example. Get in touch and we’d be glad to work with you on delivery of our cocktails.

What is the minimum order quantity?

Usually 1 case of 6 bottles. If you need less, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to help you.

How many drinks will I get from 1 bottle of your blend?

Most of our recipes call for 50ml of our blends. You will therefore achieve 15 serves per bottle (75cl), and 90 drinks per case (6 bottles).

How much alcohol should I use with each serving of your blend?

That part in up to you. We recommend 35mls for most of our recipes.

Where can I taste your blends?

Contact us here and we’d be glad to arrange a 150ml sample to come out to you in the post.
