Everyone knows the restorative power of a frozen Margarita when the temperature creeps into the triple digits. To give the frosty cocktail even more cooling power, The Rustic in Dallas, TX, made one small—but important—update, by garnishing the drink with an ice pop instead of a lime wheel. Behold, the most refreshing summer cocktail you’ll ever have. Though the bar uses a Sangria Grape popsicle from SocialIce, a local pop shop in Dallas, home bartenders can opt to garnish with any grape or raspberry pop instead—either flavor will taste great.
