In the middle of such a hot summer, Phoenix citizens are almost definitely in need of something delicious and cold to beat the heat. Bars know this, too, so they’re offering something special — frozen treats with a kick of their own — that can help anyone in Phoenix cool down and take the edge off of a long, hot day in style. These boozy slushies and drinks are certain to help battle the summers whether it’s to go or to stay. Here are a few bars near Phoenix offering frozen cocktails and drinks.

Fat Tuesday is a bar in Tempe and Glendale — both sides of Phoenix — selling more than just cocktails of the standard variety. They’re famous for their wide variety of frozen alcoholic slushies, including a full menu of daiquiris from “Banana Split” to a hot-sauce-heavy Bloody Mary slushie called the “Hot Mary.” There are even bites to be had if you have a hankering for some wings, some po’ boys, or even just a snack.

An alehouse and so much more located in Phoenix, LOVECRAFT in Phoenix offers frozen cocktails, eats, and of course, boozy slushies, made specially with each season in mind.

Specially made for people trying to beat the heat and raise their spirits — literally. As an added bonus, you can get yourself a slice after cooling off!
