Don’t let the Midwest summer heat get the best of you. Hot summer nights in Missouri call for a cold drink refreshment and some time spent with friends. Here’s a list of the top five spots to find a frozen drink in the St. Louis area.

The Fountain on Locust
3037 Locust Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63103
(314) 535-7800

Whether it’s a quick stop before a show or a night out with friends, The Fountain on Locust will cool you down with a number of delicious treats for the whole family. While the kids can enjoy a good old-fashioned soda, adults can sip on an ice cream martini or an adult float. Experience a classic frozen mudslide or one of the unique martinis accented with ice cream at this place that is famous for its birthday ice cream martini and its orange Dreamsicle, lemon lime or strawberry selections. Add vanilla ice cream to a white peach Bellini or a dark creamy stout, and enjoy your float with a new twist.

Ruiz Mexican Restaurant
901 N. Highway 67
Florissant, MO 63031
(314) 838-3500

Enjoy a family-owned atmosphere from this North County restaurant that has been in the area for nearly 50 years and claims to be the area’s oldest Mexican restaurant. Satisfy your taste buds with authentic Mexican food followed by fried ice cream. Wash it down with the most refreshing and finest frozen strawberry margarita around, with or without banana. Go for a little less frost, but still ice cold and chilled, with the blue lagoon, Cadillac, melon or peach margarita on ice.

Bailey’s Chocolate Bar
1915 Park  Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63104
(314) 241-8100

If chocolate’s in the name of the restaurant, you know you’re in for some deliciousness, and not just the hot cocoa variety. This place doesn’t miss a chance to accentuate chocolate in every way, shape or form; especially in its frozen drinks. For the best in frozen drinks, select from the selection of liquid dessert martinis. Choose from ice cream or sorbet choices of rich coffee, creamy Bailey’s, cinnamon chai, smooth pumpkin, dark chocolate coconut, raspberry or strawberry-lemonade, sangria or a traditional salty dog.

Café Ventana
3919 W. Pine Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63108
(314) 531-7502

Whoever said coffee needs to be served piping hot has never enjoyed a frosty treat at this favorite St. Louis spot. This place turns a favorite cup of coffee into a hot summer’s afternoon frozen delight. Enjoy a frozen Irish coffee, which is a blend of frozen coffee and whiskey, topped with whipped cream. Another frozen treat to enjoy is a Finnegan’s shake which mixes frozen coffee with a delicious milk stout.

The Muny
1 Theatre Drive
St. Louis, MO 63112
(314) 361-1900

Nothing is quite as thirst quenching as a nice tall glass of iced-cold lemonade – nothing, that is, except if that lemonade is frozen. Visit this Forest Park hot spot to take in an outdoor musical while sipping on the best frozen lemonade around. Sit back and wait for the show while you hit the concession stand, which offers a variety of frozen cocktails as well as plain old-fashioned, non-alcoholic frozen lemonade. The Muny is open during the summer season months only.
