Hello tiki-drink mixers! Anyone bought or had experience with using one of those cocktail-size drink blenders? The kind that makes just one or two drinks at most? Any brand names to suggest? Also does anyone with a tiki bar also keep a small frig (for stowing extra coconut cream and fresh fruits) and a juicer handy at their bar? Can anyone share any tiki bar pix?

Well heck, I keep a bar fridge right beside the bed!
I've tried bottled mixes put out by TGI Friday's, but they're not anywhere close to being Tiki related. Tasty, but not Tiki.

Not sure about the mixer.
I have the "milkshake" type mixer on the bar. I have an icer attachment on my Oster vintage beehive mixer and I crush it all into an ice bucket in advance. I keep an ice pick close by if I need to fix the crushed ice that freezes solid.
I plan to have a micro fridge for the juices, etc. I decided a full fridge was too and the smaller ones that make ice can't make enough to matter. The ice bucket is here to stay, so just a small fridge for mixers is best. I plan to incorporate it into the actual bar someday.
I can mix the drinks in the metal mixer cup and it holds 2 or 3 big mugs full with crushed ice.
Crushing ice is generally a loud affair, so I do it ahead of time in large quantities.
