Spiked Milkshake at Black Tap
The fresh addition at this popular burger bar isn't just any Instagrammable milkshake. Black Tap's elaborate 12 varieties (like Oreo Cookies & Cream, U Bet Chocolate, and Nutella) can be infused with shots, should you so blissfully choose. $7

Vodka-Red Bull Popsicle at OddFellows Ice Cream Co.
A new doozy from a long beloved ice-cream spot, this pop's high alcohol content packs a punch, with an extra jolt of Red Bull to take your day-drinking into night. $8

Whiskey Spiked Frozen Coffee at Skinny Dennis 
Served in a Greek diner coffee cup, this slushy comes straight out of an old-school churning machine, spiked with bourbon, brandy and coffee liqueur, and then topped with fine coffee grounds. $6

Boozy Snow Cone at Pearl & Ash
This spiked childhood favorite comes in a variety of grown up flavors like raspberry-thyme with Byrrh or papaya-ginger with Cocchi Rossa and Cappelletti. $6
