Great Gift or Kitchen Staple: Target’s Jumbo Cocktail Shaker


Shaking martinis for a crowd?  This is the perfect solution to making cocktails for a full house during the busy holiday season:  Target’s Jumbo Cocktail Shaker!  It also makes a great holiday gift for the do it at home mixologist.  

The Target online link says it’s not available in stores, but I saw it there myself this week!

Hint…hint….I would graciously accept this as a stellar hostess gift.

Tommy’s Ultimate Margarita Mix: It May Just Be Better Than Trader Joe’s Margarita Mix

On a lazy summer evening, relaxing with the best company of friends, we mixed margaritas with Tommy’s Ultimate Margarita Mix.  

We poured Sauza Hornitos tequila (this is recommended many times over by many different sources as the best and most cost sensible tequila), Tommy’s and a splash of fresh squeezed orange juice in the margarator and viola!  Perfect, delicious margaritas that beat Trader  Joe’s mix by a majority vote.

*If you click the link, you can get the Tommy’s info and where to buy it.  We found it at our local Mollie Stones grocery store.  

Happy sipping!

Margaritaville Margaritarator At Costco–Good Price, Get One While You Can

FYI!  I finally made it to Costco for the first time in ages.  The price on their Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker is really a deal–plus you get the carrying bag as a bonus.  If you were thinking about getting one, this might be your chance.  $174.99!  It really does make excellent blended drinks.

Margaritaville Pitcher: 13 ounces–4 margaritas

Just for the record, because we’ve been asked this several times…during our testing we found that you can comfortably fill the Margaritaville Pitcher to the 13 (o-k, so sometimes I take a chance and I fill it to 16 or 20, and sometimes it works and I don’t get sticky margarita floor)  ounce line and add ice to the ice line in the ice shaver. This makes 4 large margaritas.  When we push the limit we have overflows and spray margaritas all over the kitchen.

We are using the Bahamas model with a 36 ounce pitcher.

Margaritarater At the Beach

Well, I do have praise for the Margaritaville Carry Bag.  It rates two fins up plus a tail!  The bag straps in the Margaritarater securely and even has pockets for the rim salt and the salt dish.  I’ve also taken the liberty of putting my recipe book in that pocket.

It’s a great accessory for travel and storage.  Makes it easy to share the pleasure of awesome margaritas with your friends.
