When it's Summer in London, you occasionally need something delicious and frozen to distract you from the heat, or at the very least console you when it's raining. Again. With that in mind, here are the most delicious ways to get your ice-cold calories around town. Pimm's Ice Cream & Hackney Hopstar Beer Ice Cream at TOMSCOOPERY370 Helmsley Pl This guy makes all kinds of deliciously weird booze-flavoured ice creams, and has now set up shop in a bloody brewery to bring you London Fields Beers in cold, sweet, cone-laden form. Jägermeister Milkshake at MEATmarket1 Tavistock St; 20 7240 4852 So, the man behind the MEATLiquor/ Mission/ Market group got hold of an industrial soft-serve ice cream machine (they're, like, super-expensive), threw in some good ol' Uncle Jäger, and turned it into a super-chill milkshake, and yes, it's the bomb. Slush Puppy Mezcal Cocktails at Quiquiriqui184 Hackney Rd; 7946 461616 It's like a margarita, except it's made with a rotation of crazy-nice mezcals, and it's in a damn Slush Puppie machine. Red Wine Lollies at Purl50-54 Blandford St; 20 7935 0835 The chemical maestros at Purl, responsible in the past for porter ice cream and Cosmopolitan lollies, are refreshing you this Summer with red wine on a stick. Ice Castle at Bodo's Schloss2A Kensington High St; 0207 937 5506 For a mere £5k, the guys at Bodo's Schloss will get an ice sculptor to make you an actual ice castle and fill it with vodka. Yep.
