June 21 marks the official start of summer, meaning it’s time to celebrate with a nice cold drink!
Whether you’re a fan of an icy margarita or a fruity cocktail, there’s one nostalgic summer beverage that will take you straight back to your childhood: The Slush Puppie. Its neon-coloured, sugary taste instantly recalls carnival rides and visits from the ice cream truck, and now you can make them on your own.
With just two ingredients (shaved ice and flavoured syrup) it’s an easy summertime treat that the whole family can enjoy.
For an adult take on the classic Slushie, why not try out this recipe for a boozy slush that works perfectly with the Slush Puppie Snow Cone Machine.
¼ cup vodka
1 cup Flavoured Syrup
Fresh mint sprigs
Add vodka and flavoured syrup into a glass. Mix well.
Fill your shaved ice machine with ice cubes, turn it on, and dispense snow cone ice into a small bowl. Transfer ice into a Martini glass, then pour the vodka and syrup mixture over the top.
Garnish with a mint sprig. (Recipe adapted from Hawaiian Shaved Ice)
