The summer-ready frozen cocktails of Brisbane

The summer-ready frozen cocktails of Brisbane

This season, make sip happen.

In the midst of the scorching summer heat, we’ve decided that the only logical way to cool off is via several frozen cocktails; and you know we’ve worked our way around Brisbane’s restaurants and bars to bring you the best.


Make the zest of summer by the riverside with Yoko’s yuzu slushie, infused with rum, passionfruit and mandarin! She pairs perfectly with this beauty’s mod-Japanese menu of sashimi, gyoza, and grilled seafood.

Coppa Spuntino | CBD

Not one, but three frozen cocktail options await at this riverside Italian eatery! Choose from fro-secco, fro-groni (as in Negroni), and a frozen Coppa Colada for an icy treat to pair with your Italian eats. Ahhhh… is that notes of a European summer we detect?

Billkart | West End

Could you get any more summery than a frozen blood orange mimosa!? Billykart serves up this refreshing sip, made with blood orange, prosecco and vodka alongside their seasonal menu, so you can pair it with your weekend brunch, lunch or dinner!


With locations in Bowen Hills, South Bank and Chermside, this Tex-Mex eatery is sure to satisfy your margarita cravings with their colourful flavours available frozen! Think the classic marg or mango, tropical, strawberry or Red Bull, or sample the ever-changing list of specials. You can even go Cadillac-style, with a float of Grand Marnier on top.


Nothing like a riverside breeze and seasonal slushie to get you through the hottest days of the year. With past hits including Chablis, watermelon, and apple flavoured frozen fun, you won’t be disappointed–just ask Riverbar’s friendly staff about their weekly slushie flavour. 


Forget 7-Eleven, the only slushies we’ve got our hearts set on are at Jade Buddha! With an ever-changing array of their house cocktails now available in slushie form, there’s no better way to cool down than with a frozen Blue Ninja. 


Stay chill out there!
