I vote for the ice cream maker. Which do you prefer to have spinning and mixing just a few inches from your face?

Why not? The treadle converts your foot's up and down motion to rotary motion. From there it's just a matter of transferring it to the ice cream maker's crank. Kids would ask to do the heavy work for you.
I've seen ice cream makers hooked up to old one lung gas engines and blenders hooked to weed whacker motors for making mixed drinks before.

I'm thinking a Margarita Mixer might be handy.

sounds like more than just that to me... there's got to be a way to make milk shakes on a sewing machine, too...
