This next one may not be a vacation essential, but it is a luxury.  I’m talking about a frozen drink machine which makes any beach trip a million times better.

The Nostalgia Electrics Margarita Maker holds up to a gallon of frozen beverage, has a clear jar and shaves ice for a consistent beverage.  This is an awesome buy for parties or just hanging out around the house.  This frozen machine doesn’t only make margaritas, you can make any frozen beverage.  If your kids are like mine, they’re going to want to try the frozen drinks too.  Here are some non-alcoholic frozen drink recipes that the whole family can enjoy.

frozen drink recipes

Non-Alcoholic Pina Colada & Strawberry Banana Daiquiri


  • 6 oz pineapple juice
  • 6 oz cream of coconut (you can usually find this near mixers and wine)
  • 2 cups ice
  • 4 frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tbsp sugar (optional)


  1. To make the pina colada, combine the pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and 2 cups of ice and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
  2. To make the strawberry banana daiquiri, combine the strawberries, banana, 1 cup of ice, and sugar and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
  3. Both of these recipes make one serving each, but they can easily be multiplied to serve a crowd.
