It looks set to be a sunny weekend and no doubt you’re looking for a more chilled out way to toast the royal wedding, rather than the traditional cuppa and scone.
Of course, not all of us are on the champagne-on-ice budget, enjoyed by our regal overlords.
This is where the store B&M comes in to save the day, with its Aladdin’s cave of beautiful bargains.
For those craving a refreshing Kopparberg, they’re in luck. The discount miracle maker are selling frozen Kopparberg pouches for just £1.49 a pop. Fantastic news if, like me, you’re counting the pennies until payday.
Warm evenings, bbq’s, kopparberg’s and Bon fires come at me! ☀️

Mixed Fruit Kopparberg is the one in the sun. Bit of ice, delightful

These pouches come in three delicious flavours: strawberry and lime, elderflower and lime, and mixed fruit.
If you consider the cost of a pint of the good stuff, this really is a bargain!
If you’re feeling a tad creative, find out how to make your own grown-up slushie in the video below:
Excellent pubs across the UK are firing up their slushie machines this summer, as the craze for frozen booze grips the nation.
The Frog and Orange in Canterbury, Kent, have clocked on to the fact Strongbow Dark Fruit is at its finest in slushie form.
Louise Pilcher, Owner of The Frog and Orange, told UNILAD how their wide range of frozen cocktails – which includes cloudy lemonade and rum punch – have already gone down a treat with pub goers:
The slushies have been so popular and we’ve had to keep up with topping the machine up, it’s been a great weekend to launch this as a new product with the beautiful weather.
We’ve also started branching out into other frozen cocktails and launched a tropical rum punch which also completely sold out. We’ve made a new one with cloudy lemon which has gone down well with vodka, gin or rum!
For those fancying a drink in the comfort of their own back garden, you can grab an iconic Slush Puppy Machine from ASOS, for the surprisingly reasonable price of £59.99. Perfect for when you want your summer party to be a little bit on the quirky side.
The machine can whip up a whole litre worth of slush, so there’ll be plenty to go around. Oh, and it comes with ten cups too, which is nice and handy.
All you have to do is purchase some official syrup – sadly not included, but available at Menkind quite cheapish – and voila.
It seems we’re all about the slushies this summer. Coca Cola is set to launch its first Coke slushie and it sounds so fabulous, I’m genuinely surprised it’s only just been invented.
Available across Japan in picnic friendly pouches, this icy delight will have all the – frankly underrated – flavourings of lemon-flavoured Coke.
Oh, and if you happen to live in Japan, then they’ll be sold at the recommended retail price of 130 yen ($1.21), which isn’t bad at all.
I don’t know about you but my weekend is definitely going to involve some alcoholic slushies at some point – hopefully while at a Royal Wedding street party.
