What’s better than a half gallon of cold, colorful, quenching tropical slushy on a hot summer day? The same thing, but boozy.
If you’re looking for a half gallon—or, hey, a full gallon—of a smooth-drinking and flavorful frozen daiquiri, you’ll find it in the Power & Light District.
KC Daiquiri Shop (“Sho’Me DAQ!!!” is what the oversize sign says) was inspired by a popular Dallas spot called The Daiquiri Shoppe. Unlike the Dallas location, the KC branch has no drive-thru and uses rum liquor and vodka instead of the wine-based alcohol developed to comply with Texas law.
Inside, you’ll find a wall of spinning drink dispensers all refilled daily with a fresh batch of icy drinks in flavors like Pina Colada, Georgia Peach and Strawberry. You’re free to mix as many as you want in each cup—we recommend a Triple H of Hulk, Hypnotic and Hurricane.
Because of the pandemic, you can get these tasty concoctions to go with the purchase of a food item. The $1.50 bags of potato chips come highly recommended. Drinks are made to order in frosted milk jugs of various sizes—a normal person should be good after the squat quarter gallon.
