7 Places to Linger over Frozen Drinks This Summer

View as Map

For the past few weeks months the weather in Charleston has been unpredictable, all buckets of rain with the occasional beach day tossed in. That's meant a lot for the city (like flooding and unpredictable business at local restaurants) and, much, much less importantly, it has interrupted prime frozen drink slurping season. Here is a handy map to some of the best icy drinks, to be consulted whenever the sun emerges. Alternatively, beer.

Note: The list is in no particular order. If your favorite blended beverage isn't on there, make a case for it in the comments or via the tipline. Amendments will be made.

1. The Green Door

Copy Link
251 E Bay St
Charleston, SC 29401
(843) 735-9664
Visit Website
During Sunday brunch East Bay Street's eclectic The Green Door serves up adult cereal milkshakes with their buddha babies and short rib benedict. The offerings switch around, but look out for the Froot Loops variety, which infuses the cereal flavor in milk and vodka and includes ice cream. Topped with Loops, of course.

2. Joseph P Riley Jr Park

Copy Link
360 Fishburne St
Charleston, SC 29403
(843) 723-7241
Not everyone agrees on the genius of the beer milkshakes at the RiverDogs stadium. But they exist, daring to blend local brews and Guinness with ice cream.

3. Home Team BBQ

Copy Link
2209 Middle St
Sullivan's Island, SC 29482
(843) 883-3131

When asked what was in their frozen Game Changer, a Home Teamer said, "rum, rum and more rum." Presumably there are other ingredients (orange juice?), but getting the hard stuff blended beachside is what really matters.

4. Taco Boy

Copy Link
217 Huger St
Charleston, SC 29403
(843) 789-3333
Mention frozen drinks in this city and people immediately start talking Taco Boy. Specifically, the beloved blended screwdriver, with a Grand Marnier floater.

5. Republic Reign

King Street hotness Republic Reign is now trotting out icy drinks on their patio during Friday happy hour. The menu will rotate, but look for cocktails on the fancier side of frozen, like an aperol negroni. [Photo: Praneendra Kuver]

6. Rutledge Cab Company

1300 Rutledge Ave
Charleston, SC 29403
(843) 720-1440
Bob Carter's uptown watering hole has lots of frozen offerings, like the nonalcoholic nutella milkshake. On the boozy side of things, they're pouring Floating Cabs, filling glasses with rootbeer, 'Root' liquer and vanilla ice cream. [Photo: Praneendra Kuver]

7. Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar

205 E Bay St
Charleston, SC 29401

The East Bay Street raw bar keeps it cold with a frozen bellini. Their take on the classic drink sends peach puree, champagne, rum and vodka for a whirl.
