Frozen Cocktails Across the Valley

As the valley heats up, how do you stay cool? I love a dip in the pool and a nice frozen cocktail while out for dinner. Here are a few of my favorites found at restaurants across the valley.


Peach Bellini’s at Oregano’s 

Officially called the original Gibbilini Bellini, Oregano’s (locations across the valley) used to limit you to two bellini’s per visit because they pack a punch with rum, champagne, peach schnapps, and chianti. Like many other products, they got smaller over time so I don’t think they do that anymore. I prefer to order mine without the chianti but try it “as is” first.


Frozé at Sol Mexican Cocina

Frozé can be found on the brunch menu at Sol Mexican Cochina located at the Scottsdale Quarter but I’ve never been there for brunch and have enjoyed it a number of times for dinner or happy hour. They also have a couple of frozen margaritas, including one with mango purée in a chile-salted glass. With that heat, I’m not sure if it cools you down or heats you up, though!


Frozen Mai Tai at Tommy Bahama’s

While shopping at Kierland Commons or as a destination, consider stopping at Tommy Bahama’s for a frozen mai tai. It’s served with a beautiful bright orchid garnish. They also make a mean piña colada! Whichever you choose, I would suggest an Uber if you plan to have more than one.


Frozen Black Cherry Sangria at Jalapeño Inferno

There are several frozen cocktails at Jalepeno Inferno but I’ve only had the frozen black cherry sangria. Unfortunately, they recently closed their DC Ranch location but their other Scottsdale location and Peoria location are still open.


Arizona Frozé

I have not been to Arizona Frozé in Old Town Scottsdale yet but I plan to visit soon! They’re known for their frozen wine, offering five alcohol flavors and one non-alcohol flavor on tap at any given time. They also sell wine bottles, pouches and a variety 6-pack of popsicles to go.
