As you swam through the air this morning, perhaps you thought, “A frozen drink would be fantastic
And perhaps you then thought, “A frozen classic
drink would be fantastic today. In fact, I’ll
do some research and see if anyone makes those, and then put together a list of the best ones.”
Well, this is awkward. Because we already did that. And it’s right here: a list of five frozen classic
cocktails built to withstand 90-degree oppressiveness. Enjoy, then go forth and be cooled already...
1. The Snowgroni
: It’s a Negroni-cum-slushy. And it’s conveniently available at a dark, cool, underground bar
2. The Mojito
at The Commodore
This blended-ice version is the logical evolution of the rum classic. Also the logical evolution for you
from their fried chicken.
3. The Whiskey Sour
at Beast of
: Picture it: there’s a searing blues guitar riff shooting up your spine, and this simple,
blended beauty slides, as if on its own, to your spot at the bar. Meant to be.
4. The Frozen Dark & Stormy
: The holy East Village mixture of Kelvin ginger slush and dark rum while you stretch your
arms out over a booth in the most colorful room in town. That’s this.
5. The Moscow Mule
at The Spotted
: A glass of ginger-beer-and-shaved-lime ice, with the spaces between lovingly filled in with vodka.
They’ll have this one ready next week.
