They’re the hottest cold drink around!

Slushie machines aren’t just for 7-Elevens anymore — bartenders around the borough are combining the childhood nostalgia of sugary frozen drinks with the adult pastime of sinking a few alcoholic beverages in the sun by mixing up booze-infused slushies. Here are some of Brooklyn’s best.


This Crown Heights Caribbean bar and eatery offers two icy cocktails to take the heat off your jerk chicken — a slushified twist on a Dark ’N’ Stormy, and one on a Greenwich Sour, which is made with bourbon and red wine.

[343 Franklin Ave. at Greene Avenue in Crown Heights, (347) 552–5684,].

Nights and Weekends

This Greenpoint bar is known for mixing Mexican and island fare, and its slushie menu is no different, offering a rotating lineup of chilly tiki and margarita variations.

[1 Bedford Ave. at Nassau Avenue in Greenpoint, (718) 383–5349,].

Whiskey Soda Lounge

Not a traditional slushie but certainly worthy of a mention, the boozy offshoot of trendy Thai eatery Pok Pok serves up a specialty called bia wun — that’s Thai for “jelly beer” — made by freezing bottles of Singha beer in a special revolving contraption that turns the liquid into a refreshing slush.

Whiskey Soda Lounge [115 Columbia St. at Kane Street in the Columbia Waterfront District, (718) 923–9322,].

Pork Slope

A locavore slushie? Only in Park Slope. This porcine eatery uses slush from Brooklyn’s own Kelvin Natural Slush Co. in its take on a Hurricane, which also includes rum, passionfruit, and orange juice.

[247 Fifth Ave. between Garfield Place and Carroll Street in Park Slope, (718) 768–7675,].

Battery Harris

This Carribbean-influenced bar is renowned for its Dark ’N’ Stormy “frozie,” which classes the drink up by adding a toasted five-spice ginger syrup, and floating the rum on top.

[64 Frost St. between Meeker Avenue and Lorimer Street in Williamsburg, (718) 384–8900,].

Bushwick Country Club

Not actually a country club, this watering hole has a slushie machine that turns out frozen concoctions including Jim Beam and coke, and sweet tea vodka.

[618 Grand St. between Leonard and Lorimer streets in Bushwick, (718) 388–2114,].
