In June, Pastaio’s popular slushy series will return for its fourth year, this time bringing the spirit of aperitivo to London with four creations in collaboration with some of Rome’s most innovative and exciting bars: Jerry Thomas Bar Room, Freni e Frizioni, La Punta Expendio de Agave and Smile Bar. 

Kicking off the series from 1st June will be a Garibaldi Riviera Slushy from the Jerry Thomas Bar Room. Little sister to the globally-renowned Jerry Thomas Speakeasy, the Bar Room pairs intimate Orient Express-inspired interiors with luxurious cocktails as an ode to the great European bars of the 50s, 60s and 70s. A homage to the classic Garibaldi, its slushy will combine Campari and orange with tomato cordial and strawberry purée for a refreshing seasonal twist on the Italian classic.

In July, Pastaio will offer Freni e Frizioni’s Zampano’s Flying Circus Slushy. Known for its rustic interior and unique, colourful cocktails with playful garnishes, the late-night bar will offer a fruit-forward take on a Negroni with a heady mix of vodka, Amaro Santoni, red vermouth, strawberry and coconut, topped with salted candy floss.

Next will be a Guava Margarita Slushy from La Punta Expendio de Agave, available throughout August. One of Italy’s best-stocked tequila and mezcal bars, whose owners spent a decade in Mexico honing their craft, La Punta will bring its agave expertise to Pastaio with a sweet yet vibrant Margarita-inspired serve.

Ending this year’s series will be the Hattori Hanzo Slushy from 90s-inspired Smile Bar, whose creative serves use homemade fruit wines crafted from market produce that would otherwise be thrown away. Pairing a crisp sake with yuzu peel, herbal vermouth, Campari and palo santo, the slushy combines Italian and Japanese flavours for a delicate yet complex cocktail.

Each collaboration slushy will be available at Pastaio’s Carnaby restaurant for one month only:

Jerry Thomas Bar Room: Garibaldi Riviera Slushy (1st – 30th June)

Freni e Frizioni: Zampano’s Flying Circus Slushy (1st – 31st July)

La Punta Expendio de Agave: Guava Margarita Slushy (1st – 31st August)

Smile Bar: Hattori Hanzo Slushy (1st – 30th September)
