Hamilton Beach #18 Cocktail Mixer


cocktail shakers & mixers

Also known as

Ron Rico Daiquiri Mixer


The first commercial electric milkshake-style drink mixer. The depicted example is circa 1948 and was badged as a "Daiquiri Mixer", thus capitalizing on the burgeoning blended tropical drinks craze. Originally patented in 1929 (and this particular model in 1935), there was exactly no difference (other than the Ron Rico Rum badging) between it and a standard Hamilton Beach milkshake mixer. As with blender-style mixers, it was popular for conveniently blending drinks in quantity and efficient (hands-free) operation.
