They’re also surefire winners for the menu of any backyard party, girls’ night in or tailgate. Lucky for us, we can cut our party prep time down to almost nothing with to-go options at these delicious daiquiri destinations right here in Arlington:

Daiquiri Depot
2544 E. Abram St.

If you’re looking for delicious daiquiris AND good food, you won’t go wrong at the Daiquiri Depot, which specializes in daiquiris to-go and home cooking with a Southern flair. Flavors include Pina Colada, mango, and the classic Hurricane, available in sizes ranging from 16 ounces to a gallon and all super convenient for entertaining.

Candy Shack Daiquiri
6401 S. Cooper St.

Bold colors, bold flavors and lots of fun are always on the menu at Candy Shack Daiquiri, which takes its name from the elaborate candy toppings that grace their gourmet Bourbon Street-inspired concoctions. Featured flavors include Texas Tea, Island Breeze, Baby Mama Drama, Cookies and Cream and the Incredible Hulk, and there are also non-alcoholic options suitable for kids. Candy Shack also offers a food menu with Louisiana-flavored dishes like chicken and waffles, fried catfish and shrimp, as well as wings that come in honey BBQ, mango habanero, or sweet teriyaki.

Eskimo Hut
1000 W. Arkansas Lane / 4407 Little Road

When it comes to delicious daiquiris (and margaritas!) you can’t miss with Eskimo Hut—but I won’t lie, the Hut’s drive-through service is almost as big a draw for me as their extensive menu. Flavor options range from banana, grape, and mango to a classic like the Blue Hawaiian, as well as signature combos like the Fuzzy Memory, Dark Rain and Water Moccasin. Pro Tip: Show your guests that you’re the host with the most with an Eskimo Hut gift card party favor, which you can pick up when you’re swinging through the drive-through.

Daiquiri With a Twist

This daiquiri destination offers a menu of specialty daiquiris (served in-house and to-go) with fun names like Mac Daddy, Boss Lady, Texas 2 Step, Miami Vice, Bad Attitude, Pistol Pete’s Double Barrel, and the Pink Panther, as well as a yummy-looking menu featuring wings, sausage sandwiches, sliders, and more. Beer and wine are also available.

Good Times Daiquiris To Go

Good Times is definitely a great choice for anyone who appreciates a really pretty daiquiri and a robust daiquiri menu. Some of the most interesting options include the Daddy James, Dreamsicle, Jolly Rancher, and the Tropical Storm—just be aware that you may have a bit of difficulty choosing, as the menu has about 50 flavorful concoctions. Good Times can also cook you up a mess of tasty wings, links, and fried catfish—or you might consider trying their signature dish, the Homestyle Smoked Chicken Salad.  Pro Tip: Ask about the Good Times Gel-O shots while you’re there.
