Orange County has plenty of days in the summer where nothing sounds better than a nice cold beverage, particularly a frozen beverage. If that beverage has alcohol in it, it’s even better, although it’s not necessary. Whether you want a frozen alcoholic beverage or one without alcohol, here are some of the best places to get a frozen drink to help you forget how hot it is.

One of the classic frozen drinks is a margarita and SOL Cocina has you covered on that front. You can order the house margarita (made with the house sour mix and fresh orange juice) frozen and, in addition, you can get a frozen mango-chile margarita served in a glass with a salted rim. This drink is so delicious that it will make you feel like you are on vacation. Plus, it has the irresistible combination of being both cold and spicy. SOL offers a few other frozen drinks, including the house margarita topped off with Tecate that is a refreshing treat.

Some places have one or two frozen drinks on the menu but at Aloha Grill, they have eight different frozen drinks to choose from. Most of the drinks are a mixture of rum and juice and they are sure to refresh you on those days where the heat is too much to bear. If you come here, try the Rainbow which is a cocktail made with six different varieties of frozen drinks all put into one glass. It is not only visually attractive, but it is also delicious and a good way to get a buzz on a hot day.

If you’re looking for somewhere to take the kids for a frozen drink, Eden Cafe is the place to go. Here you’ll find slush and snow drinks that are sure to satisfy the need for something cold. Plenty of fruit flavors are available like mango, orange and blueberry, among others. You’ll also find flavors like almond, peppermint and lavender milk tea.
Sweet Elle Cafe
7251 Warner Ave.
Huntington Beach, CA 92647
Summer is not usually the time when you think about hot chocolate, but you’re more likely to think about it if it’s frozen hot cocoa. Sweet Elle Cafe serves a frozen hot cocoa that looks like a heap of sin in a mug. It is topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate, then it is drizzled with chocolate sauce. It is a huge beverage, so take someone you can share it with.
