We'd make some cutesy comment about how hot it is out there right now, but it's safe to say we're all aware — and we've got at least another eight weeks of this heat. How will we ever make it through? Refreshing summer cocktails, that's how. Here's what to sip right now to keep your sanity in tact.
The Verdita at Bolsa
Tequila, pineapple, lime, St. Germain, cilantro, mint garnished with a pequín pepper, paprika and salt rim, dried mango candy with chamoy — Bolsa's Verdita may as well be the mascot for unending Texas summer. Pop into Bolsa during happy hour and you'll get this beautiful frozen beast for $5.
This cocktail is guaranteed to make your dog love you even more.

The frozen zombie at Hot Joy
The new Hot Joy is a fun spot for kitschy East-meets-West fare, sure, but our favorite part of this temporary Uptown restaurant? The tiki cocktails. Cool off with the frozen zombie cocktail, which may seem fruity and fun but packs a boozy punch.
