12 Places to Sip Frozen Drinks This Summer

View as Map

There are few things that satisfy the soul more than an icy frozen cocktail when it's blazing hot outside. Tasty as they are, you'd better not ask for one at any old dive bar — even if they've got a blender on hand, they'll probably shoot you a dirty look. And they're not exactly considered the epitome of a sophisticated cocktail, so there's a good chance your local mixology bar doesn't make 'em, either. With that in mind, here's a map of 12 places to sip frozen cocktails in Dallas, a guide that's sure to come in handy once the mercury begins to rise.

Whether or not you're a fan of Mi Cocina's food, you've got to admit their frozen drinks are pretty killer. The most famous is of course the extremely potent Mambo Taxi, a frozen margarita with housemade sangria — just be sure to hail an Uber to get home intact. [Photo: Mi Cocina/Facebook]

This bar is a little taste of New Orleans in Uptown, so it stands to reason that they'd have sweet and potent frozen drinks like the ones you might encounter on Bourbon Street — including a slushy Jack and Coke and a tangy blackberry lemonade. [Photo: Quarter Bar]

Long a go-to for fantastic cocktails, Bolsa's bar serves up a Hulk-green drink known as the Oak Cliff Creeper — a uniquely balanced mixture of Cruzan rum, green Chartreuse, citrus, basil, and nopales (that's cactus).

This perpetual Lowest Greenville hot spot ought to win an award for "Best Use of Beets in an Alcoholic Beverage." The Frozen Double Under is made with beet-infused Dulce Vida tequila, rosemary syrup, and fresh lime juice for a tasty concoction that you can almost convince yourself is "healthy." There's also a frozen Moscow mule that gets added zing from ginger kombucha tea. [Photo: HG Sply Co./Facebook]

Pakpao puts an appropriately Thai twist on the typical frozen margarita with the Chula-Rita, made with lemongrass-infused tequila, lemongrass syrup, triple sec, and a vivid magenta swirl provided by fresh prickly pear puree. These things are potent, so go easy (and/or pad your stomach with some drunken noodles or laab gai).

This wonderfully divey Deep Ellum drinking hole has a much tastier alternative to the inexplicably popular Red Bull and vodka: the Frozen Irish Coffee, a slushy and not-too-sweet concoction that does double duty by getting you both drunk and caffeinated. [Photo: Luna Matto/Twilite Lounge]
