Fremont Street is known for a lot of things. Live music. People-watching. Thrill rides. Casinos adorned with neon. All that and more.
But one of Fremont Street’s main claims to fame has to be its “slushy” drinks. They’re frosty, they’re flavorful and they keep downtown’s non-stop street party well-lubricated!
To find out the most popular slushy flavors, we went to what is arguably the most popular outdoor bar at Fremont Street Experience, D Bar at The D Las Vegas.
While we said “you’ll never guess” the most popular slushy flavor, you might prove us wrong with the undisputed king of slushy flavors.
We’ll give you a minute.
Hint: This flavor is derived from a fruit, so it almost sounds healthy.
Have a guess in mind? Here you go!
Yep, strawberry is easily the most popular slushy drink flavor at D Bar, and quite possibly in the world.
The second most popular is a bit trickier.
It’s a flavor inspired by a cocktail in its own right. The name of this tempting cocktail translates as “strained pineapple.”
Oh, why are we even bothering with clues? You’re just going to skip down to the photo, anyway.
Second most popular slushy drink on Fremont Street: Pina Colada.
And in third place on our list, it’s another slushy drink derived from a beloved cocktail.
The original typically consists of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice, and all those flavors are present in the slushy version at The D.
The third most popular slushy flavor is margarita.
Now, you know!
These are just a few of the many slushy flavors available on Fremont Street of course.
The D’s outdoor bar serves up a whopping 17 flavors, and that’s just at one bar!
That’s right, 17 flavors, from Purple Haze to Tropical Bliss to Sour Green Apple.
Once you start mixing flavors, the possibilities are mind-boggling.
In fact, there are 136 possible flavors if your slushy has just two of the 17 available flavors. With three mixed, there are 680 possible combinations, and that’s not even taking into account the variety of liquors you can add.
No visit to Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas is complete without imbibing in a slushy drink, and they cost a fraction of similar drinks on The Strip. Downtown is all about value, and that includes the slushy cocktails.

I thought a pina colada, originally pina con lada, meant pineapple and coconut.
