Daiquiri shops aren't the only places to get frozen drinks. Here are some cool alternatives.
This late-night spot popular with service industry workers is famed for its coffee-ground-topped frozen Irish coffee. Early risers can grab a cup during the bar's happy hour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $3.50. Killer Poboys serves offbeat sandwiches in the back bar from noon to midnight Wednesday-Sunday. 811 Conti St., (504) 522-3573; www.erinrosebar.com, @erinrosenola
The gay-friendly neighborhood bar whips up a frozen brandy Alexander dubbed The Separator, a tall blend of Kahlua ice cream, milk, brandy and coffee liqueur, served like an oversized soft-serve ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top. 740 Dauphine St., (504) 566-7191; www.goodfriendsbar.com, @GoodFriendsNOLA
Freret Street's rust-lined, warehouse-sized live music lounge serves several house-made frozen daiquiris, from a white Russian to a white lightning, a pineapple concoction blended with moonshine. On Mondays, happy hour lasts all day. 4528 Freret St., (504) 826-9912; www.publiqhouse.com, @freretpubhouse
St. Lawrence's Pimm's cup daiquiri may be an antidote to a hot day in the French Quarter, but look for other rotating seasonal specials, like the Ponchatoula strawberry and basil daiquiri. The bar also serves a full restaurant menu. 219 N. Peters St., (504) 525-4111; @stlawrencenola
This retro-inspired cocktail lounge (Moari idols and all) above Felipe's in the French Quarter is scheduled to reopen this month following renovations. Find frozen Hemingway daiquiris among other flights of fancy from the tiki-centric bartenders. 301 N. Peters St., (504) 267-4406; www.facebook.com/tikitolteca, @tikitolteca
