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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
