Where to find the best frozen drinks in DC

It’s heating up and there is nothing more refreshing than a frozen drink on a hot, sticky day. Summers in DC don’t have to be full of sweaty suffering.  You know the days: when your cu-lots are sticking to your inner thigh and your hair is frizzy and pressed to your dripping scalp. Your sunglasses keep slipping off your nose, your shirt has turned a darker shade of it’s former self, and swamp ass is setting in.

Never fear, Slurpees and alcohol will be your new bff and aid in your recovery from the summer heat!
