Beat the heat with some of the coolest drinks and desserts around town. From ice cream to frozen margaritas, there are plenty of treats to choose from this summer.


Melt Ice Cream

You can't help but smile when you walk in to Melt’s sunny yellow shop. Their small-batch, high-quality ice cream is one-of-a-kind with plenty of non-dairy options available.



Muy Frio Margaritas

When you need an adult beverage to cool off, you can’t go wrong with Muy Frio. Although this frozen drink joint is known for its frozen margaritas, there are also several non-alcoholic flavors to choose from.



Sol y Luna Snow Ball

This Fort Worth spot serves traditional shaved ice with Mexican flavors. You’ll also find spicy Mexican treats like mangonadas and chamoyadas. Pair your cold treat with an elote for the perfect summer snack!



Sweetzy’s Snowcones

You’ll get all the summer vibes at Sweetzy’s Snowcones and their bright outdoor seating where you can savor one of their many snow cone flavor combinations.



Curly’s Frozen Custard

Located on Camp Bowie, Curly’s is a summer staple for Fort Worthians. You’ll find an array of cool delicacies from ice cream sandwiches to sundaes and of course, frozen custards.



Joy Macarons

Swap your traditional ham and cheese sandwich for an ice cream sandwich or scoop of ice cream from Joy Macarons. The shop also offers dairy- and gluten-free options.



Morgan’s Ice Cream

Another local favorite, Morgan’s Ice Cream, is known for their special flavors of the month, but their year-round scoops are equally as delicious. The Strawberry Magic and Fudged Up Brownie scoops are must-try flavors!



Alma’s Paleteria

Cool down with a paleta from Alma’s Paleteria. Their crema paletas are creamy popsicles with flavors like pistachio, cappuccino and horchata. For an extra refreshing option, opt for their paletas de agua, which come in flavors like lime and pineapple. Alma’s also has an array of ice cream and raspado (shaved ice) flavors to choose from!
