Get set for summer with these slush recipes

Posted on:

Now more than ever, consumers are looking forward to the warmer, sunnier months.

When lockdown procedures are eased and we can go out and enjoy the sunshine, there will be only one way to cool down… SLUSH.

In this blog, we will list some of the best slush syrup recipes to help you prepare and plan for the coming months, ensuring you tempt customers with the most delicious slushies around.


Springtime showers can only mean one thing. Summer is on its way.

Full of Flavour

It will probably come as no surprise that Blue Raspberry is an all-time favourite flavour. Mix in some Red Strawberry and you’ve got an iconic slush mixture, guaranteed to bring the punters in.

But have you ever considered mixing things up a little more?

Summer is the perfect time to get creative with your slush syrups. After all, we have all been there, sat in the heat, gasping for a cold, refreshing beverage to get our taste buds tingling. So, why would your customers feel any different?

What about trialling a Tropical Cherry flavour? Complete with a glace cherry and umbrella stick. An unusual combination but a real crowd pleaser. Throw in some gimmicky props and really work on the presentation so you can push your new creation on social media, helping to drive in custom.

And have you considered adding a little tipple to your syrups? Brits tend to drink more in the summertime, so now’s the perfect time to trial a boozy slush recipe. Our Kola Kube syrup works particularly well with rum. And Red Strawberry is a treat when served as a daiquiri.

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your flavours – a little experimenting may lead to a tasty discovery!

Here are some of the best slush syrup combinations…

Keen to try, but not sure which to buy?

If you’re interested in reaping the benefit and profit of owning a slush machine but you’re unsure which machine is for you. We’re here to help.

Choosing the right machine to fit your needs largely depends on how much slush you’re wanting to make, how much space you have within your premises, and how busy you expect to be.

Our Mr Cool It Skyline model is easy to use and is quick freezing. Plus, there are powerful LED lights behind the bowl so you can really make a spectacle of your slush. The front panels also have a plastic inlay where you can insert your own point of sale artwork if you wish.

But if space is your issue, then the CAB Faby Compact may be the perfect fit. Great for small spaces, the clue is in the name. The Compact model features all the benefits of the Faby Skyline but in a smaller size, particularly the height, making it suitable for environments where space and power usage are at a premium.

All the models we stock can be found here, and if you need a helping hand choosing yours, we’re only a phone call away
