Can you rent a margarita machine? Is it worth it?

Yes, you can definitely rent a margarita machine, and it is totally worth it.

If you’re thinking about buying a margarita machine for home use, you should drop that idea. You will be able to serve margaritas, but there is a major setback. You would have to excuse yourself every now and then to refill the machine with ice cubes or the margarita ingredients. The batch you prepare would be enough to serve roughly 15 guests. So, instead of being a bartender at your own party, rent a margarita machine allowing your guests to help themselves.

Depending on the company, the type of machine, the flavor, and other services provided, the cost may vary. Keep in mind that you should be paying the rent for the whole day, not per hour.

The benefit of renting a margarita machine is that the price includes delivery, set up and pick up, and a pre-mixed margarita. All you need to do is plug it in and allow the machine 45 mins to an hour to prepare the drink.

There is no need to stand guard. Enjoy your party with your friends and family and let the machine do all the work.
