Looking to upgrade the drinks at your summer garden party this year?
Now you can be the envy of all your mates by serving up cocktail slushies in your very own home, thanks to a nifty new machine from the folks at B&M.
Yup, we all love a Slush Puppie, right?
Well, the budget high-street store is stocking a new hard slushie maker, and it’s a seasonal must-have, if you ask us.
The B&M Cocktail Slush Machine comes with measurements on it so you can ensure you’ve got just the right amount of booze, ice and other ingredients in your jug.
You can make up to a litre of cocktail slushie at a time, and all you need to do so is some syrup, ice, water and booze, as well as your fave cocktail glasses.
There are a bunch of slushie syrups online, but if you want to get ultra nostalgic, you can actually buy Slush Puppie syrup so it’s as close to your favourite frozen drink as possible.
If you’d rather, you can also just make a cocktail of your choice and ice it up in the machine. Strawberry Daiquiri slushies, anyone?!
The machine also gives the option to choose whether to make your cocktail fine or coarse, and there are indicators on the jug about exactly how much of each ingredient to put in in order to achieve the perfect blend.
The best part is the machine only costs a very reasonable £35, and is available in B&M stores now (you can find your nearest one here).
The same Cocktail Slush Machine is available for as much as £50 on other websites, so as per usual B&M is coming through with the bargains.
We’d advise being quick if you wanna get one from B&M, as we expect this drop to be popular, and it likely won’t be around for long.
When the store shared the news of the new machine on its socials, it is safe to say that people were excited.
“Looking for a refreshing way to enjoy your favourite cocktails this summer? Look no further than our cocktail slush machine,” the page wrote.
“With just a few simple steps, you can turn any cocktail into a delicious, icy treat that will keep you cool all summer long.”
“This is what we need,” wrote one person in the comments, tagging a mate.
Whilst another penned: “I’m definitely getting this.”
“I think this is a must have,” commented a third.
Brb, we’re off to stock up on one of these immediately.
