We Found the Coolest Frozen Cocktails to Try This Summer

Let's face it. It's hot outside. and the only way to cool off is to stay indoors, hang out in a pool or grab a cold drink. What's even better? Get yourself a frozen drink. New Orleans bars and restaurants have recently upped the ante in the frozen drink department by using fresh fruit and seasonal ingredients. We compiled a list of the best frozen concoctions to grab around town.

Frozen Reisling

If a frozen rose doesn’t do it for you, how about a frozen Riesling.  Delachaise on St. Charles is serving up both of these frozen concoctions.  Can’t make up your mind?  Get them both.  Photo courtesy: Delachaise facebook

Gin & Tonic Daiquiri

Bourrée, the sister restaurant of Boucherie, kicked daiquiris up a notch by making them daily with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Because of this, the menu often changes but the one drink you can always count on is the gin and tonic daiquiri. Forget all the sugary liquids that are poured into traditional daiquiris, these are made to order with whatever happens to be in season. Photo courtesy: Bourre

Folks on the North Shore also have a great place to grab a good frozen drink.
