Alcohol Slush Ideas: 6 Refreshing Cocktail Slushie Recipes

Posted on:

So, you have a slush machine and a favourite syrup (or two), but here’s how to take your summer drink experience to the next level: make cocktail slushies!

Passionately crafted to replicate the signature flavours of each iconic recipe, our alcohol slush syrups will make it a breeze to enjoy a tasty beverage whenever you fancy something a bit different.

Cocktail Slushie Recipes

Here’s a little overview of what you can expect as well as the six best alcohol slush recipes to try for yourself home, whether that’s for a special party or to cool off on a particularly hot summer evening.

Can you put alcohol in a slush machine?

Yes, you can definitely put alcohol in a slush machine!

For the best results, we recommend a 6:1 water-to-syrup ratio and using the same quantities for the spirit, at least the first time you make them. After tasting, you’ll be able to figure out if you’d rather add a little less or more alcohol.

However, if you’re planning on serving your cocktail slush drinks at a party or event with kids or friends who don’t usually drink alcohol, here’s a better solution: make mocktails by adding only the syrup (ours are alcohol-free!) and water to your slush machine, and let people pour their chosen spirit directly into their own cup.

6 best cocktail slushies for a fun, refreshing twist

Our cocktail syrups are everything you need to make an impeccable alcohol slushie. Basically, instead of having to find the perfect balance among different ingredients and mixing them, all you need to do is pour one into your slush machine and let it work its magic.

However, if you’re going to serve them to your friends or are planning an unforgettable party, why not surprise them with some fancy garnish?

We’ve included a few tips on that, too.

Delightfully blue and super refreshing, blue lagoon cocktails are the picture of warm summer nights: whether you’re going to add vodka or serve it on its own, no wonder this is one of our most popular cocktail syrups!

We think you’re going to love the perfect balance between sweet and citrusy. To emphasise the latter, be sure to add a lemon or orange slice to each glass.

Or, if you really want to wow your guests, a maraschino cherry on top, too.

Blue-Lagune Cocktail

Extremely popular amongst groups of friends, this sweet, rum-based cocktail slush with a zesty lime kick is bound to become the star of your next party.

And what better way to serve it than by adding both a lime wedge and a little strawberry on the rim of the glass?

Can we all agree that a Mojito is the rum-based cocktail (and alcohol slush) par excellence?

Minty, citrusy, but pleasantly sweet, a mojito is a must during those summer nights that you wish would never end.

As a garnish, we recommend adding a lime wedge and, if you can, a few mint leaves, too.


When it comes to white rum, nothing does it better justice than a pina colada cocktail slushie.

Much like mojitos, this alcohol slush idea is just what you need to add an exotic twist to your event and make all of your guests feel as if they were right by a paradisiac sandy beach.

To add to the charm of this creamy cocktail, include some small pineapple slices and/or leaves.

Psst. Cocktail umbrellas wouldn’t look out of place, either.

Another all-time-favourite cocktail slushie, a margarita is a party-saver if you’re not a fan of sweeter alternatives.

Thanks to its uniquely tangy flavour, this alcoholic slush will reward you with a delicious citrusy aftertaste: just add your favourite tequila, amigos!

Not all cocktail slushies involve vodka, tequila, or rum. If you’re part of the gin squad, we have great news: we’ve also created a gin & tonic alcohol slush for you and everyone else who prefers a refreshing floral flavour.

As well as your favourite brand of gin, you could add a slice of lemon or lime to the rim of the glass and, if you want to outdo yourself, a few juniper berries.


With so many different cocktail slush recipes to choose from, your next party is guaranteed to be the most colourful and memorable event in a very long time. And don’t forget about all those summer cocktails and mocktails that you’ll get to enjoy with your family!
