A CONVENIENCE store has started selling this year’s “perfect summer drink” – alcoholic slushies to grab on the go.
The Nisa Local shop in Unsworth, Bury in Greater Manchester launched their new boozy slushie machines on Saturday and have become an instant hit.
The store offers three flavours of their vodka slushies – fruit punch, blue raspberry and black grape.
The refreshing drinks, priced at £4 each, allows customers to pop in for their papers, eggs, milk and other items while grabbing a 5.2% boozy slushie whilst at the counter.
The branch announced their new machines on Facebook where they have gone down a storm with followers.
An image shows the three slush machines in a row with an 18+ sign attached.
The Nisa store wrote: “Alcoholic slushies available now in store.
“From the left are Au fruit punch, Au blue raspberry and Au Black grape.”
The post attracted hundreds of likes and more than 6,000 comments from social media users.
