fixation friday: margarita machines

First I will start off by saying I know that I'm supposed to be doing some type of recap about my vacation, I know this! And I promise I will get to that soon. I've been so busy at work and at home that I haven't had a chance to relax all week, unless you could my 90 minute YogaX session last night. So in the meantime I thought I'd talk about something that would make all this stress a whole lot easier. So sit back and enjoy.

Today's fixation is all about Margarita Machines! I know you've all seen them, usually they are marketed by the mecca that is Margaritaville. Side note, if you have never tried Margaritaville tequila I suggest you buy a bottle and hook yourself up a margarita to die for! I really love that stuff. Hey Cathy, maybe this could be your next taste tester? But I'm not here to talk about booze, well not completely anyway.

This stuff is the cat's pajamas I.M.O.

Back to business. Speaking of business - usually my days are a ton of fun at my job, lots of laughs and fun times, others it takes all I have to make it through 'til 5:00 pm. On those days I am often running a mile a minute and I'm stressed to the point of breaking. Repeatedly I've requested that we set up a fund for an office margarita machine. We have a coffee maker, why not one of these?

I give you exhibit A
The Fiji Frozen Concoction Maker
Yes sir, I'd like three please!

Tell me that my days of creativity wouldn't be enhanced by this machine and all it's delicious frozen delights! I will always tell anyone, I'm way more creative (or think I am) when I've had a few cocktails in me. My creative brain loves rum, simple as that. I'm also a bit more focused, or at least I was that time I polished off a bottle of wine while scrubbing my bathroom grout with a tooth brush and cleaner. I never once complained about the task, it came out beautiful and actually took my time doing it.

I've often joked about getting a machine for the office, often as in at least one a week. I truly believe my co-worker and I that share an office would not only feel less stressed but also feel great about grinding up fresh fruit in the mix and making our own healthy Skinny Margaritas. See I'm all about a healthier lifestyle since I've been working out. I've changed I tell you!!! *wink*

How many of you are with me on this? Ok so you might not agree that having an office margarita machine is a good idea but how about at home?

I give you the mother of all frozen concoction makers... The Tahiti Frozen Concoction Maker!

Seriously, if I had this $500.00+ piece of frozen awesomeness at home I'd never go to another bar again! This thing is fracking amazing!!! I would build a pool just to use this next to it. You best bet that when I get married one of these (maybe not this one in particular) will be on my registry. I've always wanted a super awesome frozen drink maker. Come to think of it I bet this would make amazing protein shakes as well. 

What's your favorite frozen drink?
Pin It!

I don't think I've ever been so thirsty in my life! That last one with three pitchers?? JACKPOT!

Sara said...

I want to drink that and then make a new batch and roll around in it for a little while.

Shelli said...

Shell said...

That may be one of the most awesomest appliances I have ever seen! :) Good luck getting it!

GIRL....I actually own the Margaritaville Margarita Machine!!! My in laws gave it to us after our Mexican Themed party we had awhile back. We made margaritas in them all evening and then they gave it to us as a gift! IT IS AMAZING!!! The easiest way to make amazing margaritas. You can make up to three at a time with the machine. I recommend getting stronger tequila if you like drinks stronger because the mix and all the ice waters it down a bit! :)

Good luck getting it!

Ashley you are no my hero - what is your address again? I'm coming to party! :)

ZDub said...

Oh sweet liquid libation! That margarita machine looks like all kinds of awesomeness! I am not a big lime marg fan, but give me a flavored marg and I am one happy lady!

Okay, I just had to comment. You know what my very favorite marg flavor is? Avocado.


There's a restaurant in town that serves them as their specialty - and as scared as I was to try it, I finally did. And, let me just tell you, once it hits your lips it's sooooo gooood!! It's the creamiest, yummiest concoction you've ever tasted. There's a reason it's their specialty drink.

So, when I was in college and dating a loser and broke as a joke, they came out with the cordless margarita machine which was plastic and you could take camping. Seriously, that is the answer to ALL of life's questions. You can't drop it and break it AND you can be in the middle of the Amazon and still mix a frothy concoction to wash down your S'mores. I love margarita machines and while I'm sure they would make lovely smoothies and protein shakes, why would you want to gunk it up with amino acids?? I'm pretty sure you void the warranty if you add anything that will improve the function of your liver.

Allyson I love how scientific you are about this. Maybe I'll buy THIS for frozen fruity rum drinks and just get a bullet for my protein shakes! :)
