If you have not yet cried out because of the heat in the past few weeks, you’re probably not in Lagos. Apart from the heatwave, Lagos is already an overcrowded city, and that also generates heat.

While there are so many ways to help deal with the effect of the heat, like drinking plenty of water, if you wish to relax on one of these hot days, frozen cocktails could add to the fun and keep you refreshed. Here are 8 interesting frozen cocktails you could try.
