7 Frozen Cocktails to Enjoy This Summer

One way to cool down from the Bend summer heat is by sipping on a frozen cocktail. Whether at brunch, returning from a day on the Deschutes River, or lounging poolside鈥攆rozen cocktails are a fun way to celebrate summer in Bend. From wine slushies to popsicle cocktails, these bars and restaurants have some of the best frozen cocktails in Bend, Oregon.

1. Bo’s Falafel

Bo鈥檚 Falafel Bar is known for its inclusivity, activism, and some of Bend’s best falafel (and now, bagels). But their rotating slushie specials are one of our favorite reasons to visit Bo’s during the summer. And, even better, the slushies can be made with or without alcohol.

Some flavors include cranberry lemonade, orange creamsicle, and鈥攐ur favorite鈥攑i帽a colada. The creamsicle is made with orange juice, cream of coconut, and your choice of spirits. On hot days, grab a spiced chicken pita or bowl and sip on a refreshing frozen drink with your choice of booze (or no booze).

2. Wild Ride Brewing

When the temperature rises above 65潞 on a sunny day, it鈥檚 perfectly appropriate to celebrate with a frozen beer slushie from Wild Ride Brewing. Surrounded by food carts in the heart of Downtown Redmond, sipping on one of Wild Ride’s signature beers topped with your choice of slush is fit for any Central Oregon summer day鈥攜es, even the stormy ones!

Wild Ride Brew鈥檚 Cold Chillin’ is a best-seller at the craft brewpub. It starts with an ice cold pour of their vanilla cream ale, followed by a topper of Orange Crush slush. It will take you back to childhood memories of sprinklers and creamsicles! Also, try their tarty for the party slushie鈥攁 pour of cherry-lemon tart ale topped with lemonade slush.

3. Midtown Yacht Club

Turn a glass of Ros茅 wine or Sauvignon Blanc into Fros茅 at Midtown Yacht Club. First, choose your wine. Then, pick from flavors like strawberries and cream. Soon, you鈥檒l be sipping on a delicious frozen wine slushie. Pair your wine slushie with a stuffed falafel from Shimshon or a grilled hot dog from Alley Dogz (they have vegan options!).

4. 10 Barrel East

First, it was sour beer slushies. Now, you can find a frozen cocktail of the day at 10 Barrel East. From frozen margaritas to boozy slushies with frozen raspberry and fresh pineapple juice, don鈥檛 miss out on these grown-up frozen treats. The frozen drink is the bartender’s choice, so you’ll have to visit their pub to find out what’s on the menu!

5. Boss Rambler Beer Club

What started as Galveston’s newest tap room has evolved into an adult’s playground. Boss Rambler’s boozy slushies come in to-go juice pouches in 16oz and 32oz sizes. Sip on Fros茅 or the Paradise Ice鈥攎ade with passion fruit, orange, guava, and ros茅. Beer lovers can still enjoy frozen beer foam to top off and keep their brews cool on hot days.

Now, breakfast cocktails are available during coffee hours. Start brunch with a mimosa slushie, beermosas (beer and orange juice) or a boozy brunch punch. We suggest hanging around their Galveston patio for breakfast burritos, day drinking, and chill.

6. San Sim贸n

Bubble pops are a summertime hit at San Sim贸n bar. A glass of bubbles is garnished with an ice-cold popsicle鈥攖hink of it as a deconstructed prosecco slushie. Throughout the summer, San Sim贸n features a variety of bubble pop flavors. A customer favorite includes the Aperol Spritz pop, but you鈥檒l have to visit their Tin Pan Alley location to get the bubble pop flavor of the day!

7. Canteen

Canteen Bar already offers some seriously incredible cocktails. But, during summer, there鈥檚 no better drink than a frozen cocktail while lounging poolside at Campfire Hotel. Cool down with a 鈥榗rack鈥 cocktail made with pineapple, passion fruit, horchata, and spiced rum.

Or, try a classic negroni with a frozen twist. The ‘frogroni’ combines gin, Campari, Sweet Vermouth, and ruby red grapefruit. Now, you must clear your schedule and grab a $10 day pass to Campfire Hotel鈥檚 pool.

I wanted to share more than where to eat, but what to eat. And not just what, but why? From where is the food resourced? Should it be paired with a beer, or a cocktail鈥攁nd what kind? But most importantly, share the faces and tell the stories behind the people who make it all happen, showing support for small business in and around Bend.
