Our Shelby Rental Company Shares 6 Delicious Slushie Ideas to Take Your Party to the Next Level!

When you think of a slushie, you probably think of popular flavors like blue raspberry and cherry. But there are actually tons of exciting icy treats you can make with a slushie machine—like a Mountain Dew slushie, or a strawberry lemonade cooler! If you’re planning a summer party or wedding, here are some creative, refreshing slushie ideas that will delight your guests and keep them cool.  

Note: since all slushie machines are different, consult your machine’s manual to determine how much liquid you will need to add.

Soda Slushie

Coke, Dr. Pepper, and Mountain Dew all taste better in slushie form! Just add the soda of your choice to the machine and enjoy all the sugar of soda with tongue-tingling snowflakes of ice.

Watermelon Slushie

For a healthier alternative that’s just as refreshing , try a watermelon slushie, perfect for a hot summer day. Add watermelon, mint, and honey for a sweet, light summer treat.

Kool-Aid Slushie

Aaaand we’re back to the sugar. (Hey, we aim to provide an option for everyone). You can easily turn your favorite Kool-Aid packet into a beverage that stays icy all evening long.

Raspberry Lemonade/Strawberry Lemonade Slushie

A tart, delicious way to cool down from the summer heat. You can use real fruit or opt for the juice aisle of your local grocery store.

Frozen Peach Bellini

If, to you, a party drink isn’t a party drink without the alcohol, try this frozen take on the classic brunch cocktail. A classic peach bellini is made with just peach puree and prosecco; you can use just these, or add peach schnapps and sugar for an extra peachy kick.

Strawberry Cream or Orange Creamsicle Slushie

This creamy slush is dairy-free so it doesn’t risk spoiling in the hot sun. Make sure to let all guests know that it contains almond milk to avoid aggravating any allergies. Just combine strawberries, almond milk, a tablespoon of honey, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Use orange juice instead of strawberries for an orange creamsicle version.
