A brand-new book from the founder of Snow & Co., an all-frozen drink bar located in Kansas City, Mo., focuses on exciting, sophisticated drinks that will put that same-old frozen Piña Colada to shame: Sloshies: 102 Boozy Cocktails Straight from the Freezer (Workman, $14.95), by Jerry Nevins.
Our perception of frozen drinks, Nevins wisely notes, has lately been colored by what he calls the “Daiquiri bar” style of blender drink. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. Those drinks are often made with overproof or grain alcohol, plus a bright, unnaturally colored syrup or a jug of branded pre-mix. “While the resurgence of cocktail culture is evident across the country, the frozen cocktail has not kept pace,” says Nevins.
