If you’re a sensible drinker that likes to cap your drinks at one per day, you might as well make it count. No place in Orange County makes one frozen cocktail count as much as Aloha Grill, particularly if you enjoy rum. At Aloha, you’ll find something called a Rainbow. This is a mixture of six different rum cocktails in one glass. It is not only colorful, but also delicious. Take your time with this one because one will be more than enough to get you where you want to go.

Brea, CA 92821

With rum, mint and lime juice, the mojito is a refreshing cocktail for those hot days. After all, the drink originated in Cuba – a place that sees its share of unbearably hot days. Well, Cha Cha’s Latin Kitchen takes a good thing and makes it even better by serving it frozen. If you’re experiencing one of those days where it almost seems too hot to breathe, stop in at Cha Cha’s and cool off with a frozen mojito.

Solita Tacos & Margaritas
7631 Edinger Ave.
Huntington Beach, CA 92647
(714) 894-2792

The tequila used in a margarita makes a big difference. While a lot of places use a well gold tequila for their house margaritas, Solita uses Agavales blanco. It’s 100 percent blue agave, and you will taste the difference in your frozen margarita here. This is the perfect place to come after spending the day at the beach when wanting to cool off and unwind.

Javier’s Cantina & Grill
7832 E. Pacific Coast
Highway Newport Beach, CA 92657
(949) 494-1239

Javier’s is an excellent place to visit, not just because of the great food, but also because of the great atmosphere. There’s nothing quite like looking out at the Pacific Ocean as you enjoy some good food and drinks. At Javier’s, you can take in that atmosphere while you enjoy a good variety of frozen margaritas that are available. The house and Midori margaritas are served frozen, however, if you want something really refreshing on a warm summer day, order a frozen strawberry or mango margarita. It will probably taste even better because of the setting in which you’re enjoying it.
