Life on Freezy Street

Life on Freezy Street blended cocktail with Sauvignon Blanc white wine, passion fruit liqueur, apricot liqueur, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and honey

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
