How exactly do you do this? I remember reading a post about someone who had a 5 gallon cornie with margarita on tap. Do you just mix up abunch of lil batches and then pour them in to the keg and then just put it on about 7psi? Also what about the freezing aspect?

You know New Years is coming up ! :)

just mix up a sheister load of margerita mix with an equaly sheistery amount of tequilla and add about 7 psi to dispense. You will need to blend with ice to get frozen margaritta's.

Or you could say screw it, and keg a batch of home brew!!!

The tool of choice for the margarita is the Vita-mix blender, not the cornelius keg. Though neat margaritas, dispensed from a corny that is buried under a sea of ice like an outdoor garbage can, ain't a terrible idea. Hmmmm....

Ouch! My liver's kicking me again! Nervy little organ.

When I was running low on homebrew batches to keg rather than spread myself thin with four beers on tap I just took one offline and mixed up some tasty stuff for the "fairer sex." 750ml Everclear, 750ml Smironoff Orange-flavored vodka, 750 ml triple-sec and filled it the rest of the way up with sprite (actually the storebrand knock-off). Went ahead and force carbed it. Served over ice. It got lots of praise.

John,

I was at a barbeque this year and the gal that was having it rented a slurpee machine. All that was needed was to dump the tequila and margarita mix into the macnine. Ten minutes later you had margarita slurpees.

I was told she got the machine from 7-11. Sombody may have been pulling my leg about that but it certainly looked like the machines at 7-11.

I do a keg every summer. We just do Margaritas on the rocks. Just rev up your usual recipe. If you dispense it with CO2, unhook it when you're done or you'll get margarita soda. It seems to be a little more corrosive to the chrome-plated faucets, so I usually just use a picnic tap. Party on! Tom

Sure, but how do you get the salt to stick to the rim of the keg? You must need to use the rubber topped kegs.

Commercial margarita tanks like they have at mexican restaurants constatnly stir the contents. You will need to regularly shake the keg to prevent seperation of the tequila/triple sec and sweet & sour. I have heard of bars that mix it up in a big trash can and have it seperate through the course of an evening.

I've not had any problem with separation. I don't know why that would happen if it was mixed well.

PTA, The salt goes on her neck and you can choose your favorite location for the lime!
