Q. How many flavours do you have to choose from?

A. We now have over 40 different flavours to choose from. I have spent a lot of time testing and photographing these flavours to help make you event one to remember.

 

Q. Do I need to supply the alcohol? How do I know what I need? 

A. Yes you will need to supply the alcohol. The flavours you pick will determine what alcohol you require. If you look at our Slushy Flavours page you will see the alcohol requirements for each flavour. 

 

Q. Do I have to put alcohol in them or can I leave them non-alcoholic?

A. You can leave them non-alcoholic if you prefer. We do have 6 flavours which are designed as non-alcoholic flavours, similar to what you would find at a cafe or your local Shopping Centre. The other slushy flavours are also suitable to leave as non-alcoholic flavours.  

 

Q. If I put the recommended alcohol in the mix, how strong will they be?

A. Most of the flavours require 2 x 700ml bottles of spirits, these will make your chosen flavours between 5% and 5.5% ALC/VOL.

 

Q. Can I add more Alcohol?

A. No, Alcohol doesn't freeze, so if you put more alcohol in than recommended your Slushy Machine won't be able to get slushy.

 

Q. Can I put less Alcohol in?

A. Yes you can, this will have no effect on the operation of the slush machine. If you put 1 x 700ml bottle of spirits in your drink it would work out to be between about 2.0% and 3% ALC/VOL. Or similar to having a light beer.

 

Q. How many drinks will I get from my Slushy Machine?

A. If you book a 2 Bowl Slushie Machine you will get about 120 200ml drinks, if you book a 3 Bowl Slushie Machine you will get about 180 200ml drinks. We have different Slushie Machine Hire packages available.

 

Q. Do you charge delivery?

A. Some areas we deliver to will have a small delivery fee. Please check when placing your order as we offer free delivery to many suburbs.

 

Q. Will I need to pay a deposit when I place my order?

A. Yes you will. The main reason is to secure your booking. If you book online you have the option of paying in full or just paying a $75 deposit.

 

Q. Is the deposit refundable?

Q. What if my slushie machine breaks down?

A. We will fix the machine or replace it. Here at Cosmic Cocktails & Catering  Machine sit on?

A. You will need to supply a strong table or bench that will be able to hold upto 100kg. Glass top tables and plastic tables are not suitable. If you don't have a suitable table, you may hire one from us.


Q. Will I need to setup the slushie machine?

A. Not at all. The slushie machines are quite heavy and that's why we send two delivery staff with 99% of all deliveries and the other 1% we use a special trolley. We are one of the few companies who fully set up your slushie machine. We will place your slushie machine in a suitable location, on a suitable table with access to power, fill your slushie machine with the required slushy flavours and turn your machine on. Why? Because we check your machine to make sure everything is operating correctly. If there is a problem our staff are able to fix most problems straight away or call the technican for larger problems. Our set up procedures ensure your party is the successful event you planned. At the end of the night all you need to do is turn the machine off. We then return the next day for pick up. Be sure to read our reviews on the left hand side of this page or check out our testimonials.


Q. Can I use a powerboard to run the slushy machine?

A. No, powerboards tend to trip out when the machines are plugged in with other items. Our 3 Bowl Slushie Machines draw between 6 to 8 amps, powerboards are only rated to 10 amps.


Q. Can I order extra mixes? How much are they?

A. Yes you can. The refill slushie mixes or back up mixes are $25 if you use them, if you don't use them we will just take them back. The refills make up another full bowls worth, just remember you may also need extra alcohol. When ordering online just tick the box for refills and we will bring one for each of your chosen flavours.
