Frozen drinks such as margaritas or daiquiris can only be made in a blender strong enough to crush ice into a thick, slushy texture. The best one for you depends on what blender features are most important to you.


The carafe is the container in which the ingredients are held while blending. It comes in plastic, glass and stainless steel. Glass carafes don't scratch as plastics do, but plastics are lightweight, inexpensive and not easily broken. Stainless steel keeps the frozen drink colder for longer, but you cannot see inside the container during the blending process.


The base of a blender must be heavy and sturdy enough to remain stable when the motor is running. The blending speed is determined by buttons or touch pads on the base. Some blenders have as few as three speeds, while others feature a couple dozen speeds. For frozen drinks, it should have a pulse button that allows you to blend off and on repeatedly.


The average blender comes in a range of power from around 300 to 500 watts, although some have more and some have less. Frozen drinks don't necessarily need excessive wattage. The average household blender will suffice to make frozen drinks.
