Ice breaker drinks for freshers!

Freshers week 2015

Freshers can be a time when your nerves start to kick in and you start asking yourself…. How will I meet people? How will i know what to talk about? What happens if I’m going to be on my own? With hundreds of questions entering into your brain, The Ice Co are here to help!

With just a handful of ingredients you have yourself 3 great ice breaker drinks to share with all your flatmates and friends to be!

These cocktails are perfect for freshers and you don’t even need to buy an expensive cocktail shaker- simply use two plastic cups! Here’s how:

Place the ice and all the other ingredients into one of the plastic cups.

Insert the other cup upside down and press firmly. At first shake slowly, until you’re sure none of the liquid will spill out (you don’t want any wastage!)

When you’re happy, shake for 20 seconds until all the liquid is mixed.


That’s it! You have yourself you’re first saving at university!

(You could even use McDonalds coffee cups if you want to be really fancy!)


First off some points to consider before the fresher’s partying begins:

  1. Don’t overdo it! Sometimes it’s fun to be the life & soul of the party… But drinking too much might make you stand out for the wrong reasons.
  2. Make the effort to get to know people, you’re all in a brand new environment and some find it easier than others. And after all, you’re going to be spending a lot of time with them so better to get to know them!
  3. Make time to sleep and eat breakfast. Sleep and breakfast will help get you through that inevitable fresher’s week flu! You know how it goes…eat, sleep, rave…..


Making drinks can be a great ice breaker in fresher’s week. Get everyone to chip in to buy some ingredients and make in a big jug or punch bowl.
