This Vintage Frozen Margarita Maker Makes Even That Cheesy Drink Sound Kind of Cool

This Vintage Frozen Margarita Maker Makes Even That Cheesy Drink Sound Kind of Cool

Generally speaking, frozen margaritas should be the exclusive province of spring breakers and other similarly-minded just-don't-know-any-better folk, but we could make an exception to our cocktail snobbery if we had a tequila slurpee made from the machine pictured above. Dubbed "The World's First Frozen Margarita Machine," it now sits in the Smithsonian, but it was invented in the '70s by Texan restaurateur Mariano Martinez, who, inspired by 7-11, adapted a soft-serve ice cream machine to serve margaritas in his chain of restaurants. With early spring temps already pushing 70 in NYC, we'll take two for the office, thanks very much.
