This may not be relevant, but I just woke up from a nap and my first thought was "Yet another camp serving margaritas". :roll:

There are already 1000s of camps doing this.

How can you do this in an original and creative way?

Maybe make a bike powered blender so the giftee gets to participate in making the libations!

Think unique and original, rather than same old same old. :idea:

Ok.'good point.

My solution is to include a free wedgie with each one that is dispensed. Uniqueness! And we can make it participatory too.

Fig, I didn't see a single bar serving frozen margaritas in my entire week. That's not to say they weren't there, but they were much thinner on the ground than you'd suspect.

There were many serving coolers full of cold drinks, but no made-to-order frozen drinks. Didn't see any blenders out there either.

Probably just my prospective.

5 years of reading everything on eplaya, I formed the impression that there were a bunch.

Somebody put a blender on a chainsaw.

Posts about margaritas do not equal margaritas consumed. Couldn't find a single one. Not for lack of trying.

The chainsaw blender is a seriously cool idea, but why run a noisy two stroke when we have whisper quiet Hondas pumping out the kilowatts!

You know, the cool thing about having such a diverse camp is that one person can decide something isnt for them, and 3 more will step up.

There is no requirement for all hands to do all things. Its fucking BURNINGMAN! :mrgreen:

They were mobile, so it made sense.

Like I said, just my perspective. 8-)

My thought would be that we throw an otter pop or two in every blend, kind of like slurpees at 7-11. They decide what Otter Pop flavors they want tossed in with the Tequila surprise.

I volunteer at the zoo. I'll get on it!

Also, I'm going to have to start working on a recipe for the Ultimate Otterpoperita [tm]

I didn't even think about how much fun the trial and error process was going to be.... hmmm where can I get Otter Pops in the winter...

My inkling is that the coconut one might actually add a nice bit of flavor. What ever we do, you know the recipe has to call for an entire Otter Pop. We don't want to have 1/2 an Otter laying around.

Just to think out loud here:

I LOVE the idea of the otterpop-based margarita. LOVE IT. But that may be a prohibitive number of pops and much sticky moop to pack out. Anyone want to try an reverse-engineer the otter pop formula and make a frozen concentrate? Or is this overthinking this and killing the charm of turning a harmless kids confection into an instant drunken orgy? :mrgreen:

Or maybe do both? Otterpop for charm and then add a glop of Coyote Magic Juice for that in-yer-face flavor?

Absolutely! One otterpop per Otterpoperita (tm), unless there are two people who want to experiment with a combo! Then we can mix and match!

So, more like; One otterpop per person served. ;-)

Grey, Kowtow gave away HUNDREDS of those things. We just need to manage the disposal neatly. We can make a trashcan with a snap on lid with a hole in the middle. Try to cut the otterpops in half before we drop them into the can (Bigger pieces, easier to manage) and rince the blenders by making the next drink.

When we close up shop at the end of the serving hours, clean the blenders for the night.

Just following that thinking a little more, I guess it wouldn't be required to have the otter pops frozen, the ice will make that happen. Although it is rather cool to cut the top off some kids ice candy then dump it in the blender with tequila, triple-sec (for mine I'll hold off on the splash of Coyote cream) and I'll offer the extra shot over to Chuck.

HA! I read Coyote magic juice as Peyote magic juice.

Now that would make for some fun Otterpoperitas! (TM)

We also need to create a better way to cut them, the scissors started struggling and it was a pain to manage them when it was busy. We need a device where when said Otter Pop is inserted a blade or wheel cuts the top off and you pull it back out. Said cutting device could then rotate or retract into a water solution to self-clean after every cut. Not sure what this would look like, but it feels like a requirement.

We just need to keep the psuedo cigar cutter away from Elliot, or we may be required to have a bar mitzvah celebration for him.
