Summer is letting us know it’s here loud and proud, and packing the heat. So right after your large iced coffee in the morning your number one priority is your large iced cocktail after work, right? Well ours is! We’re all about the over-the-top, little umbrella, colorful bendy straw, outrageously garnished, creative cocktails at the moment. Because with the level of humidity we’ve had to endure this summer, darn it, we deserve a little pizazz in our cups! If you feel the same, check out our list for the most creative cocktails we can find around the city and get ready to raise a glass.
Crafty Marys at Met Back Bay on Saturdays and Sundays
This is the unicorn of Bloody Marys. At this make-your-own “Crafty Mary” bar that The Met Back Bay hosts during brunch on the weekends there is an extensive array of outrageous toppings to put on your cocktail. Think jumbo shrimp cocktail, mini burgers, and more!

Frosé at Stephi’s on Tremont and Lulu’s Allston
Last summer everyone was obsessed with rosé and this summer a magic wand has been waved and this pretty-in-pink drink has been frozen. We present to you: Frosé, the hottest (or coldest) new cocktail being poured at the moment. Think of the best kind of adult slushy you’ve ever had and you’re nearly there. If you want it in the South End visit Stephi’s on Tremont, or if you find yourself in Allston head to Lulu’s. (Hint: our South End tour ends at Stephi’s and if you take our Allston tour, Lulu’s is not too far away).

Smoke & A Pancake from the Rail Stop
This creative breakfast-for-dinner drink, inspired by the one and only “Austin Powers Goldmember,” is being mixed up at one of Brighton’s newest spots. It’s made with Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, Sapling Maple Cordial, and lemon and orange juices, garnished with dry ice and a mini pancake. Yeah baby yeah.
Address: 96 Guest St, Boston, MA 02135
Tiger Tikis from Tiger Mama
If you’re feeling tropical head to the tiki bar at Tiger Mama for an elaborately decorated and flavored cocktail. Who needs scorpion bowls when you can drink out of conch shells?! Choose from their extensive tiger tiki list and be ready for all the rum and all the straws and all the garnishes. Tiki-tastic.
Address: 1363 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02215
Game-related cocktails from A4cade
At this arcade meant for grown-ups (you must be 21 to enter) you can feel like a kid while drinking a creative cocktail out of a bright and animated glass, or should we say bowl, these things are huge! We heard the more you drink the better you play, just a rumor though, so get your game on.
Address: 292 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139
