Cool down by spending cold hard cash on these frozen treats instead of hoping that the manager of King Soopers doesn't notice you've been standing in the freezer aisle for hours without buying anything.

The LoHi bar/ resto in a former mortuary pours a teeth-chattering tropical treat that packs in two different rums, coconut milk, lime juice, and a squeeze of simple syrup.
