Life on Freezy Street

2017 was the Year of the Frosé, a blended wine slushy that took the world by storm. But we’re not ready for this trend to be over; there’s just something about frozen wine that makes for a perfect summertime day-drink.

Liz Pearce, lead mixologist at Aba in Chicago, took the frosé template and ran with it, inventing a gorgeous new play on the recipe in the form of the Life on Freezy Street.

White wine (Pearce calls for Sauvignon Blanc) takes the place of rosé, and a bevy of fruit juices and honey add sweetness and depth.

The original recipe calls for honey. If you have honey syrup, use twice as much to account for the additional water.

Ingredients

Instructions

Blend everything with a cup (or about 240 mL) of ice. Check it, and add more ice if the mixture seems too loose.

Pour into a cocktail glass or coupe and garnish with a wheel of lime or grapefruit, and an edible flower or two, if you’ve got ’em.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
