The problem: How does a man keep his drink cold as the weather grows warmer?
The solution: Freeze the drink.
So we made a map that will lead you, Goonies style, to seven such drinks.
B. Negroni Slushy | Parson’s Chicken & Fish
Summer ain’t summer without one. Also available in slushy form: the Dark and Stormy, and our new favorite: Purple Drink. Don’t ask what's in it, just get it. 2952 W. Armitage (map)
C. Sporting Snow Cones | Sportsman’s Club
Available all summer: the Sporting Julep, a lip-smacking frozen treat of bourbon, Branca Menta, Letherbee Besk and mint. Ask your friendly barkeep for the rotating daily selection. 948 N. Western (map)
D. Mango Lassi | Pub Royale
Spiked mango lassis. Served here. We needn’t say more. 2049 W. Division (map)
E. Ants on a Log | Mott St.
The best way to enjoy Mott St.’s patio? Shaved ice topped with Lambrusco, celery syrup and basil seeds. 1401 N. Ashland Ave. (map)
F. Frozen Sangria | Oak + Char
Sundays are now Sangria Sundays. As in pitchers of frozen sangrias on Oak + Char’s sidewalk patio. 217 W. Huron St. (map)
G. Frozen Mescal Mule | Henry’s Swing Club
Slushy machine, meet Mescal Mule. Mescal Mule, slushy machine. 18 W. Hubbard St. (map)
