Cool Off With These Boozy Frozen Drinks in New York City

by Kerry Jepsen on Jul 11, 2017 in Roundups

There’s no better way to treat yourself during the sizzling summer months in the city than to sit down with an adult slushy. Boozy cocktails are not only freezing cold and delicious, but have manifested in the most creative ways all over the city. Frozen margaritas and piña coladas are totally passé, but how about a frozen negroni? Keeping you cool when you need to be cool the most, we’re rounding up the best frozen cocktails around.

Mother’s Ruin
This infamous industry hangout over in Nolita has frozen cocktails available all year round, but something about summer time makes these slushies extra delicious. Flavors are alway apt to change, but you can’t go wrong with any of them. (18 Spring St.; 212-219-0942)

The Commodore
Over on Metropolitan Avenue, The Commodore is serving Southern style cuisine (the fried chicken is truly something) and frozen drinks that need to be ordered on every visit. Alongside the classic pina colada, frozen mojitos and mint juleps are also available and equally delicious. Fried chicken can pair with a lot of things, but frozen drinks is next level. (366 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn; 718-218-7632)
 
Momofuku Noodle Bar
The first installment of the famed NYC chain from the one and only David Chang, Momofuku Noodle Bar has great noodles, steamed pork buns, and even a fried chicken and caviar dinner. The other thing Momofuku Noodle Bar has is amazing frozen soju slushies with rotating flavors just for the season. Delicious and innovative, these soju slushies are the perfect way to wind down over some great grub. (171 1st Ave.; 212-777-7773)

The Johnson’s
Every good Bushwickian has been to the The Johnson’s more times than they can remember, and that may have to do with their frozen specialty ‘The Painkiller.’ An easy going combination of rum, pineapple, coconut, and orange juice served tall in slushy format, ‘The Painkiller’ is a great way to chill out with friend in the patio furniture adorned pseudo-patio space. Not only is ‘The Painkiller’ a perfect remedy for the heat, but for only $8, your wallet will also come out pain free. (369 Troutman St., Brooklyn; 718-417-7100)

Roof at Park South Hotel
Rooftop? Check. Mediterranean eats? Check. The ability to get two frozen cocktail classic in one? Check. Looks like we have all the criteria for a perfect spot for summer. At Roof at Park South, they haven’t reinvented the wheel so to speak, but they found out putting two wheels together gets you to where you’re going faster. Stop by for their frozen Miami Vice cocktail special, which layers a strawberry daiquiri on top of a pina colada. (125 E 27th St.; 212-204-5222)
 
Skinny Dennis
Find yourself in the north side of Williamsburg enough, and it’s very likely you’ve probably already heard of “that coffee thing” at Skinny Dennis. This popular Texas themed dive always has something going down, whether is the whimsical live texas swing bands featured on almost every night, or the literal peanut shells that cover the floor. That coffee thing is a frozen mixture of coffee and whiskey, and it is simple, amazing, and served in an old school diner coffee cup. (152 Metropolitan Ave.; 212-555-1212)
