Quick Hits Atlanta: Best Ways to Cool Off in the Summer Heat

This time of year in Atlanta can be brutal, but we have found just the things to take the edge off and cool you down.  Beat the summer heat and indulge in some of these yummy cold treats.

Boozy Frozen Grapes at Whiskey Blue

At the top of our list is the new Prosecco frozen grapes that will be available starting August 1, 2017 at Whiskey Blue in Buckhead. Frozen grapes are a great healthy snack alone but douse them with prosecco and you have a true winner. Imagine sitting on the gorgeous rooftop patio at W Atlanta Buckhead and snacking on the sugar-coated, vodka-infused, Prosecco-soaked grapes. Add the grapes to any bubbly, a chilled glass white wine or a Whiskey Blue signature cocktail. Not only are they cute garnishes for any cocktail, but they’re also the perfect table snack for you to savor on our gorgeous patios – a great cold appetizer to enjoy on a warm summer night. 3377 Peachtree Rd NE,

New Ice Cream Shop Opens in Duluth….Serving Booze-infused Ice Cream!


A new concept has just opened in Duluth and it could not come at a better time of year. Serving an exotic selection of alcohol-infused ice cream Suga and Ice, which opened at the end of June, is a fresh concept and the only one of its kind in the city.  Along with their boozy ice cream, they have a refreshing and enticing array of sorbets including Gin and Juice, Blueberry Mojito, Lime and Tonic and Strawberry Champagne.  Pick your flavor and then opt for a cup or an in-house freshly made waffle cone (flavor options are regular, chocolate, sweet potato and red velvet). Miniature gluten-free cones are also available. The sisters behind this new concept have really thought of everything. While ice cream, both alcohol infused and virgin-style, are the main draw, there are also specialty items on the menu like the Smooshie Bun, which essentially is an ice cream sandwich made with a Krispy Kreme donut and filled with your ice cream of choice and then drizzled or topped with an array of goodies like chocolate syrup, sprinkles and even Fruity Pebbles.  3095 Peachtree industrial Blvd. Suite 100
