If frozen cocktails conjure up visions of sugary ice concoctions consumed at spring break, these grown-up takes might just help you re-envision that thought. From updated takes on a national treasure to digestive drinks with a twist, you won’t find a single frozen Daiquiri on this coveted list.
We might not be able to pronounce Graziano’s new frozen cocktail but we certainly know we want to drink it! A combination of traditional Argentine gin, lemon ice, St. Germaine elder flower liqueur, and Cava, De los Apostoles Sgroppino ($14) is a digestive cocktail is best enjoyed post-dinner—but we think it tastes amazing before, after or during our meal.
W South Beach
The W South Beach wants you to cool down with their new summer Frozen Limoncello ($16) that presents your taste buds with a perfect balance of tart and sweet, made with citrus-infused vodka, Italian Limoncello, fresh lemon and top-shelf Prosecco.
José Andrés’s take on Brazil’s national drink, the Caipirinha, is smokin’. No, really, we mean literally—liquid nitrogen is used instead of ice to make this frozen creation of sugar, fresh lime and Cachaça. Get your LN2 Caipirinha ($10) at Bazaar Mar at SLS Brickell and cool down STAT.
The Conrad Ft. Lauderdale
The Conrad Ft. Lauderdale is serving Frosé Sangria ($16) that’s almost too pretty to drink—almost. Rosé, Grand Marnier, pineapple, lemon juice, mixed berries, simple syrup and one mint leaf are blended, served up in a balloon glass and garnished with berries and edible flowers to create this uber refreshing summer cocktail must.
