In the middle of the Texas heat in DFW, where the city is known for patio and outdoor dining, a frozen cocktail is a great option. You’re probably familiar with the frozen margarita, but cocktails have become much more unique recently. These bars have some of the most unique and best-tasting frozen cocktails in the DFW area and are great options for the summer months.

The Quarter Bar

The Quarter Bar is associated with Bread Winners, an upscale yet casual restaurant. The summer months are a great time to head to Quarter Bar because it serves up its famous booze pops.

You can also get an adult cherry limeade and a frozen Jack and Coke.

When looking for a classic, Hopdoddy offers a great frozen margarita that tastes extra fresh because there is no pre-made mix being used here.
