Ice Ice Baby: 8 Places For Frozen Cocktails In Manchester

As the sun returns to our skies for another season, it's time to turn our attentions back to the refreshing world of cooling tipples. A summer staple if you like drinking without the full-body flush (with most available all year round too), we've put together a list of places fronting our favourite frozen cocktails in Manchester, from new takes on classic concoctions to the quirkiest iced sippers.

Dirty Martini

Dirty Martini's new margarita menu includes a frozen strawberry number, one that will only set you back £7 if you head over during happy hour. The sweet, icy fruit is mixed up with Cointreau, Olmeca Blanco tequila and lime for the ideal refreshing serve, all while you take pics in front of the angel wings or nab plenty of other boozy treats off the extensive drinks list.

Sunset by Australasia

No surprises that this slick Spinningfields spot has something special up its sleeve - some of the tastiest frozen cocktails in Manchester, UK. Pretty-in-pink bar Sunset boasts the pornstar martini's sunshine-ready makeover, which blends Belsazar rosé vermouth and ice into the mix. The menu also includes a range of Sorbet Sunrisers, where frozen, fruity flavours are combined with prosecco.

Flight Club 

Flight Club is widely regarded as one of the most quirky bars in Manchester, but did you know about its signature cocktail slushies? Packing one hell of a punch is the Watermelon Crush of lip-smacking lychee, strawberry, lychee, rosé wine and Ketel One. Meanwhile, the rum-laced Coco Fumada is finished off with pineapple, coconut, lime, mezcal and banana liqueur.

Lock 91

When you want to drink a frozen cocktail at one of the most popular bars in Manchester, Lock 91 comes in hot with its ice-blended strawberry daiquiri - a permanent menu fixture. Taking that quintessentially British summertime fruit and giving it a boozy twist, this waterfront haunt's cool concoction is finished off by dashes of lime, raspberry, pomegranate and muscavado sugar.

If you don't want to get your frozen cocktails delivered, Ramona is on-hand with its cool converted MOT garage between the Northern Quarter and Ancoats. Here, you can enjoy bottomless iced margaritas alongside endless Detroit-style pizza and daily rotating fresh salads at any time of year. To top it off? The banana and pandan version is totally swoon-worthy.

Crazy Pedro's

The clue is in the name at Crazy Pedro's, a place where everything from the maverick pizzas to the eye-popping decor is pretty consistently off-piste. The same goes for its all-year icy cocktail menu, which brings you different fruity takes on the classic frozen margarita, such as twista, strawberry or woo woo, and comes served with sweets as garnish.

Pico's Tacos

Just like chips and gravy or bottomless brunch with prosecco, there's no better accompaniment to a taco than a frozen marg. That's exactly what's in store at Pico's in Mackie Mayor, where you can nab one cold concoction for £9 or two for £17. Better yet, the Baja fish beauties are highly recommended, as is the charred sweetcorn dip with feta, spring onion and chipotle.
