3.  Perfect Margarita (frozen) – El Sombrero

If you are dining at El Sombrero, then a frozen margarita is a must!  This drink is perfect, not to sweet, not too strong, and seems to magically stay frozen until you drink the last drop.  The magic may also be that the gatekeepers drink their margaritas so fast that there isn't time for it to melt!  But anyway, this drink can be ordered on the rocks instead of frozen, but with triple digit temperatures we recommend the frozen version.

4.  Martini – Tic Toc Room

Whether shaken or stirred the Martini is a classic drink.  The Tic Toc Room makes some of the best Martini's in town, and is the perfect place to grab a drink and cool off.  If a traditional Martini is too strong, then try one of the many specialty Martini's on their extensive beverage menu. 

5.  Vodka Cranberry – Hummingbird

Next time you are at the Hummingbird checking out a great new band, try a Vodka Cranberry drink instead of your usual.  The bartenders at the Hummingbird know how to mix drinks well, and you will definitely taste the vodka in this drink.
