If you’re looking for a great way to spend a hot day, you might want to beat the heat with a refreshing slushy after a good meal. Shoreline Sightseeing brings you a sampling of the best of Chicago’s gourmet slushies.
Parson’s Chicken and Fish
For a grown-up twist on a simple summer treat, Parson’s Chicken and Fish has a rotating selection of the finest frozen cocktails in Chicago. Enjoy a ceviche or oyster appetizer on the spacious patio, and snack on the cheese curd fritters or hush puppies as you enjoy a Chicago summer. The original Negroni slushy is a hit for fans of sophisticated Italian liqueurs, while the Purple Drink delivers a sweet and fruity punch. Don’t forget the Michelada if you’re looking for a cool beer drink on a hot day.
High Five Ramen
This intimate eatery is located in a basement for a quiet retreat on hot, sunny Chicago days. The choices are few, but select; the titular High Five ramen is a carefully formulated bowl of spicy heaven that’s not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, the Coconut Painkiller is a premium sweet cocktail slushy that will level out the face-numbing flavor of this bowl and return you to a blissful eating experience. High Five Ramen is part of the Hogsalt Hospitality restaurant group, which includes Chicagoland favorites like Green Street Smoked Meats and the Doughnut Vault and Vault Van.
For a taste of the Middle East, Taza Bakery in West Rogers Park serves up fresh and fast authentic food and drinks. Snack on the samoon bread and hummus, or order a Middle Eastern pizza with toppings like spiced lamb or za’atar spice. You can wash down your delicious taste of the East with a cool and refreshing pineapple slushy, or fresh-squeezed carrot or orange juice for a healthy kick.
White Oak Tavern
Chicago locavores will swoon over the offerings from the White Oak Tavern in Lincoln Park. This farm-to-table establishment uses the finest local ingredients to bring you seasonal favorites like smoked salmon summer quiche, chicken liver mousse, and the unbeatable asparagus salad. Wash down your brunch or dinner with the artisanal Bourbon Smash Slushie, a unique treat featuring Ezra Brooks bourbon, black tea, and a fruity minty kick for a delightful finish on a hot day.
