On a pipin' hot day, are you more of an ice cold cocktail person, or an ice cream person? Margarita, or milkshake?
If you don't want to pick one, you don't have to at these restaurants. Behold - four places to find boozy treats for a hot summer day.
Soi. These aren't your kids' popsicles...a glance at their popsicle menu shows five different flavors like watermelon, Moscow Mule (ginger), Thai Tea, Thai Coffee and Spicy Pineapple (chili peppers and pineapple).

Hot Cakes. An oldie, but a goodie! Hot Cakes is well-known for their boozy milkshakes, and no time is more apt to indulge than during summer. Not that we wouldn't (and haven't) had one of these in the middle of winter, mind you. The Drunken Sailor in particular (peanut butter, dry-burned caramel and Jamison whiskey) is calling our name - even though were slightly lactose intolerant. IT'S THAT GOOD.

Boozy Frozen Cocktails/Slushies
Nacho Borracho. Margarita shops all over the world are probably sitting here reading this like GUYS WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN FROZEN BOOZY TREATS YOU WEIRDOS! So here's a shoutout to the OG frozen drink, the marg. Sure, frose is having a moment - but let's not all forget where we came from. And if you've ever gone out in/around Capitol Hill, you've likely come from Nacho Borracho (be honest).

Ice Cream Cocktails
Shug's Soda Fountain and Ice Cream. You see, this right here is the definition of a boozy treat. You get three parts of a great thing: soda, ice cream and a little kick! We're talking Shug's boozy floats, which come in eight different flavors so don't even worry about not finding one that's perfect for you.
