3. The Red Lion and Sun
Award-winning North London pub, The Red Lion and Sun have become a local favourite for frozen cocktails in the sunshine when they first brought out their old fashioned frozen margarita cart during the first lockdown of 2020.

4. Double Standard
Within the very fancy The Standard hotel in Kings Cross is a 70s-inspired bar and terrace space known as Double Standard. You may have heard about their boozy Bloody Brunch events but did you know that they’re also famous for their slushy spritzes? With past offerings including a frozen aperol spritz, their Snowball brunch special, and a pornstar martini, you know where you’ll find us this summer. Visitors can also take advantage of a stunning sunset by escaping up to their rooftop bar for panoramic views of the city’s skyline or bask in the heat by grabbing a seat in their suntrap of a terrace garden.
Location: 10 Argyle Street, London WC1H 8EG
Setting the tone in Carnaby for hearty fresh pasta dishes accompanied by a playful frozen cocktail (a combination we never knew we needed) is Pastaio.

The Soho branch holds onto their prosecco slushies all year round with flavourings such as lemon and blood orange for an ice cold sparkling treat. Keep an eye out this summer for frozen specials with past favourites including pink gin with raspberry and Piña Colada.

Now, you’ve heard of dinner and a show but how about a frozen cocktail and a show? The Cut is an independent bar, restaurant, and cafe all rolled into one as part of the Young Vic theatre just a short stroll away from the southbank. Whether you’ve secured a seat for an evening of live performance hosted by one of London’s leading theatres or simply just browsing the area for a great lunch or dinner spot, you’ll be welcome to grab a frozen margarita with a maraschino cherry twist at the bar, alongside some rotating slushy specials that are worth keeping an eye out for.
