Enjoy perfectly prepared frozen drinks from one of four programmed cycles -- ‘Ritas, Daiquiris, Coladas and Smoothies! The Remix channel re-blends every time before dispensing a drink to ensure smoothness, and drink settings are programmed to shave and blend a half (30-oz.) or full (60-oz.) chamber. Manual “shave only” and “blend only” controls allow for custom consistency. Recipes from the Margaritaville® Brand’s frozen drink experts can be found on (MSRP: $499.99)
