A margarita machine in Wakefield, Massachusetts

A margarita machine is a margarita dispensing device. A margarita mix, traditionally lime flavored, is put in a refrigerated container with a spinning agitator. The user is able to dispense margaritas from such a device for extended periods of time, usually up to 12 hours, without losing any quality in the taste of the margaritas. A margarita machine may be purchased in its finished form or built from a cooler with special equipment.


The margarita machine was invented in 1971 by Mariano Martinez after receiving multiple customer complaints about the quality of the margaritas at his restaurant. He got the idea from seeing kids buy a Slurpee.[1][2]
