Even though summer is on its way out, Picolé Pops will bring a boozy frozen treat to two Dallas locations that can be enjoyed pretty much any time of the year.

Picolé Pops owner Adrian Lara tells Eater that the forthcoming popsicle shop is set to soon open its first location in the Bishop Arts District at 415 West Davis Street, a stone’s throw away from Lockhart Smokehouse. A second location will later follow in Deep Ellum, near Pecan Lodge.

The shop will serve its take on Brazilian-style popsicles, which are slightly different from the Mexican paletas that are common in Dallas. "Mexican pops are more of a water-based popsicle, with a texture that can be very hard,” Lara told CultureMap. “Ours will be infused with alcohol and exotic fruits you don't find here. And then it's all about the filling inside.” As far as those fillings are concerned, each bite of a Picolé popsicle will ooze a variety of sweets, like Nutella.

The Bishop Arts outpost of Picolé Pops is set to make its debut sometime next month, and Deep Ellum will arrive later.
