All three frozen beverages are 16 ounces, priced at $10 each. Highlights include the Frosé, frozen rosé wine; the Piña Colada with rum, coconut milk and pineapple juice and the Margarita with tequila, lime, triple sec and agave syrup.
Additionally, the full-service casual restaurant located in the heart of Shaw is also offering a special Wear Your Pride Milkshake which will be available throughout the month of June. Priced at $5, the milkshake is made with vanilla ice cream with food coloring, pixie sticks and sprinkles, topped with whipped cream.
