Vodka Daiquiri

Nola Distilling Company, 3715 Tchoupitoulas, New Orleans, LA 70115

This refreshing pink daiq is made with cranberry juice and NOLA Distilling’s locally made vodka. They don’t officially open until this Thursday, but this is sure to be your new go to summer bev. The distillery will be starting off with just vodka, and soon expanding into gin as well.

Frosé all Day

Willa Jean, 611 O’Keefe Ave, New Orleans, LA 70113

Willa Jean is the only place in town making this trendy pink beverage, and that’s just one of the many reasons we love them so much. Not only is there lots of pink wine blended into these, but a little added vodka means 1.5 frosés in, the buzz is real. So tasty, and so refreshing!

Purple Rain

Ace Hotel New Orleans, 600 Carondelet, New Orleans, LA 70130

Our fave on the Ace’s menu, this purple drank is the absolutely perfect summer sipper while sitting poolside taking in the views of or lovely city.


Frozen Pimm’s Cup

Saint Lawrence, 219 N Peters St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Who knew a Pimm’s Cup could be made even more refreshing? That’s exactly what you get with the frozen Pimm’s Cup at Saint Lawrence in the Quarter. Made with all fresh ingredients, this is not your average daiq.


Daquiris at Compère Lapin

The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery, 535 Tchoupitoulas St, New Orleans, LA 70130

The bartender at CL, Abigail Gullo, has quickly become one of the most well known in the city for her tasty concoctions like these unique spins on classic daiqs. The drinks are changed up quite frequently, and often include ingredients that you wouldn’t expect in your daiquiri, but they never disappoint the tastebuds.

Classic Frozen Marg

Tcoup Yard, 405 Third St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Sometimes a babe just wants a classic. Sipping this oversized marg on the lively patio at Tchoup Yard will quench your thirst on a hot summer night. Beer-go-rita optional.


Bourrée at Boucherie, 1510 S Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, LA 70118

Sister restaurant to Boucherie, you already know this isn’t going to be your typical wing and daiq joint. Don’t be turned off by the ultra sugary Hurricane that comes to mind when you think Bourbon Street. These hurricanes are made wish fresh passion fruit, the way a hurricane was intended. Don’t skip the wings – they are the best in town!

At last there is a reason to abandon the AC in the summer heat babes! Drink up, and let us know if we missed one of your frozen faves in the comments.
