When the weather is hot, hot, hot, you need a drink that’s cold, cold, cold, and you can forget popping some ice cubes in a glass, the whole thing needs to be frozen. Yes we’re talking slushies people and not the bright blue ones from your youth – these are strictly for big kids. Here’s where to get the best slushies in London.
Mikkeller Brewpub in Exmouth Market has a rotating selection of slushies on offer, so whether its a fruity watermelon and strawberry mix, a summery piña colada or a one-of-a-kind Nouveau Wine slushy, they’ll have something that tickles your fancy.
If you’re supplying for a house party or a boozy picnic in the park, Krush Puppies are your guys. These ultra-indie slushie slingers are making some of the best – and most powerful – frozen cocktails out there. They’ve got a bunch of different flavours – from ‘Magnumade’ (Magnum & lemonade) to margaritas – plus, they’re selling them for as little as £6 a pop which is (as we all know, by London standards) kind of a steal.
