It’s time to chill out this summer now that the temperatures are heating up. To do just that, we have rounded up five of the best frozen cocktails that you need to try out this summer. Here’s a sneak peek.
1 Legal HarborsidePaul Saraceno
Whoever said snow cones were made solely for children has obviously never been to Legal Harborside. The waterfront property is the place to be this summer and the La Bomba is what you need to sip on here. Made with Pueblo Viejo Blanco tequila, Aperol, Combier Pamplemousse rose, Marie Brizard white crème de cacao, Del Maguey Crema mezcal and lemon, this is the perfect summer cool down cocktail served over ice pellets. The adult “slushies” are available now on the rooftop.
270 Northern Avenue Boston, MA 02210
Picco is best known for its homemade desserts, but come summertime, we flock here for their creamy boozy concoctions. The “adult ice cream soda” served at this South End favorite is a decadent combination of raspberry Belgian lambic with vanilla ice cream. For an even richer cocktail, try the cow tipper frappe made with stout and vanilla ice cream.

3 Frost Ice LoftFrost Ice Loft
One of the best ways to literally cool down this summer is with a visit to Frost Ice Loft. Located in Faneuil Hall, this haute spot is made entirely of ice. From the moment you step into the 21 degree indoor bar, you know you are in for a fun experience. Head over to the ice bar and try out one of their ever changing menu of craft cocktails like a root beer float or the pop-ups this summer that include whiskey and gin tastings.

4 Davio’s Northern Italian SteakhouseDavio's
When you just need a little refreshing taste to cool off, head to Davio’s in Back Bay for one of their boozy granitas. We love the prickly pear granite made with tequila in lime. Other flavors include espresso with chocolate liqueur and passion fruit made with Grand Marnier.
75 Arlington Street Boston, MA 02116
5 Casa RomeroCasa Romero
We head to Back Bay to the home of one of the best frozen margaritas in town. At Casa Romero, the margaritas here are prepared with premium tequilas, fresh lime juice and Cointreau. Whether it's on the rocks, frozen or lined with salt, the Grand Margarita, the "Cadillac of Margaritas" is a must have here with its refreshingly good combination of sweet and tart.
