With Summer nearly upon us, we’re already preparing for some beautifully warm weather. However, coping when it gets too hot is a nightmare that is shared by many British people, and the occasional gin slushy can really help us to get through the hottest of days.

What if we told you that you can mix some of your favourite spirits with your slushies for an adult take on the classic drink? We love indulging in gin cocktails in the summer, and slushy cocktails are even nicer. Today, we are going to be sharing some of our favourite frozen gin slushy cocktail recipes with you. Before we begin, please note that you will need a blender for some of these recipes.

Gin Slushies

1. Strawberry Gin Slushie

Wimbledon is here, and with it come strawberries and cream aplenty. This refreshing slushy is perfect for the hottest of days under the sun, when the shade is hard to find. Offering refreshing notes of strawberry and a citrus-infused backdrop, it is difficult not to fall in love with this delightful drink.

Ingredients:

– 2 Cups of Ice
– 100g Fresh Strawberries
– 50ml BLOOM London Dry Gin
– 20ml Honey
– Fresh Strawberries
– Sprig of Mint for Ganish (optional)

Method:

1. Take your fresh strawberries and put them in your blender. Then, add the fresh honey. Blend both the honey and the strawberries together until you are left with a relatively smooth consistency.
2. Add your BLOOM London Dry Gin and blend the mixture again.
3. Next, add your ice bit by bit, adding more between each blending moment until your slushy appears to be the right consistency.
4. Taste your slushie. If it still tastes quite bitter, then you could continue to add more honey to the mixture. Keep adjusting until it matches your preferences.
5. Take a chilled glass of your choice and pour your cocktail slushie.
6. For an added touch, perhaps garnish your strawberry gin slushie with some freshly chopped strawberries.

5. For an added touch, perhaps garnish your pomegranate gin slushie with some fresh pomegranate seeds.

3. Tropical Gin Slushie

Who doesn’t want to imagine sitting on a warm beach in the tropics when the weather is this delightful? We know we do. This tropical gin slushie might not be an island getaway, but it certainly feels like one.

Ingredients:

– 2 Cups of Ice
– 450g Seedless Watermelon
– 50ml BLOOM London Dry Gin
– 20ml Honey
– Watermelon
– Coconut

Method:

1. Take your diced watermelon and put it into your blender. Pour in your honey. Blend the two together until the consistency is smooth.
2. Add your BLOOM London Dry Gin and blend the mixture together again.
3. Gradually add your ice, blending in between. You should be able to tell when the right consistency develops.
4. Taste your slushy. If your slushy doesn’t taste sweet enough, then you might want to consider adding more honey.
5. Take a chilled glass of your choice and pour your cocktail slushie.
6. For an added touch of the tropics, perhaps garnish your tropical gin slushie with some freshly cubed watermelon and coconut.
