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.

YOKO DINING | CBD

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.

JADE BUDDHA | CBD

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

EL CAMINO CANTINA | VARIOUS LOCATIONS

With locations also in South Bank and Chermside, this Tex-Mex eatery is sure to satisfy your margarita cravings with all six of their flavours available frozen! Think the classic marg or mango, tropical, strawberry or Red Bull, or sample the flavour of the month.

COMUNA CANTINA | CBD

Inner-city life, inner-city pressure – Comuna Cantina is coming to save ya. As well as Latin street food, this restaurant features an entire menu of mouth-watering cocktails including the Hurricane Colada with Havana Gold rum, Cointreau, orange juice, passionfruit pulp, coconut cream and mango syrup served over crushed ice.

RIVERBAR | CBD

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. 

FRIDAY’S RIVERSIDE | CBD

Your after-work drinks just got that much more exciting now that Friday’s has added cherry blossom slushies to the menu as part of their summer pop-up! There’s no better way to wind down after a big week than with one of these. 

Stay chill.
