So I was at work yesterday and we were cleaning out the old wine room. I happened to walk by and saw what looked like a clamp-on beer tower. So I of course said, hey, if you decide to throw that away, I'll take it. So my manager says, "Funny you mention that, we just decided to throw it away."
So I take it home and upon closer inspection it was not, in fact for beer. The spigot is actually plastic and there is a small plate on the back of the tower that says 100% Cuervo Gold Margarita. Sure enough, upon cutting the line to free the tower from the base, it smells like old margarita. The funny thing that I found was at the other end of the line was a Corny out fitting. So they had filled a corny with margarita and were dispensing it that way...wierd.

Anyway here's my question. Can I recycle this tower for future beer usage? It's by no means in great shape, but it was free, and is insulated and everything....Also I may be scoring a CO2 tank with it, I just didn't have enough hands to carry everything yesterday

Now there's an idea. I wonder how they kept the margarita mixed, or if it separated. However, nice score man!

Thats pretty cool. There is no way that it stayed mixed, they must of just been using that as the dispenser and then pouring it over ice.

This is actually something that I keep talking to the wife about doing. We always serve our margaritas "on the rocks" anyway, so it is easy enough to do from a keg. I have always wondered how a little carbonation would play with the flavors of a margarita. I currently have a 5 gallon batch of white sangria in one of my kegs, and it has proven to be VERY popular.

+1 on that. I can only imagine! Yeah, you should soak it and push some brew through it. Also, we need some pics of this dirty machine.

That's a great plan! Maybe not margaritas, but mixed drinks and whatnot.
