5 Frozen To-Go Cocktails To Try Before Summer’s Officially Over

We’re all stuck inside with the windows shut, so the next logical step is to grab a spiked slushie.

Some say that summer ends after Labor Day. Some say that its official farewell is September 21st. We say it’s the point at which we’re forced to spend most of our time stuck inside with the windows and doors shut, a.k.a. right now. And while we all wish we were sitting on a dock instead of a sticky leather loveseat, we can still grab a soft, icy-cold, frozen cocktail to bring back home and make the best of this dismal September. From frose to frosty guava margaritas, here are five great spiked slushies available to go - and if you don’t have air conditioning, maybe order a few extra.

The Spots

Bottlehouse is one of our favorite bars in town, and they’re always serving something frozen spiked with wine, even when it’s 35 degrees out. Whether you go for their frose or some tart frosecco, it’ll be refreshing enough to counteract the heat wave currently happening in your apartment (let’s all face it, fans don’t do much anyway). While you’re at it, grab some cheese and baguette for a living room picnic.


Sure, all of the frozen cocktails at this West Seattle pizzeria are only available by the growler. But that sounds like exactly the slushie experience we’d like to have right now. If you’re not sufficiently cooled off by the end of your quart of guava margarita or jungle bird, we can’t help you in that department. But what we can do is encourage you to add on a pepperoni pie and some scallion garlic knots.

It’s tempting to pass up on Super Six’s strawberry lemon frose, but trust us - you want the mai tai slushie instead. It has an ideal balance of sweet pineapple and bitter dark rum, and pairs particularly well with one of their “sexy” tofu taco pack.


This Wallingford bar does an excellent job at classic cocktails like the paper plane, negroni, and French 75. And if you throw the ingredients from the latter (gin, lemon, and Champagne) in a slushie machine, the results are going to be really good. And sometimes they even blend in some fresh watermelon.


You can’t forget about Bait Shop’s painkiller, which is one of the best boozy slushies in Seattle. There’s a ton of citrus and pineapple to remind you that it’s still technically summer, but also some warm shaved nutmeg to remind you that pumpkin spice-flavored everything is almost here to haunt your life.
