To Make it Better, Blend it.

Going through my travel photos the last few months, I noticed that more than a few frozen drinks were consumed this summer.  It seems that they’re enjoying a renaissance, and rightfully so because you know what?  They’re delicious and they make me feel like a kid again…mostly because I know they’re probably really bad for me but I drink them up anyway.

WHERE TO GO IN NYC FOR A FROZEN COCKTAIL:
  • Rusty Knot, 425 West St (West Side Highway, in W. Village), a “dive” bar from the owners of Spotted Pig and Freemans
  • El Quinto Pino, 401 W. 24th St in Chelsea.  Tiny, charming, romantic, TINY Spanish tapas spot that does a killer frozen horchata.  
  • Rayuela, 165 Allen St. in LES.  Awesome, if really sweet, pina colada with a rum floater.  You only need one, and at $15, it’s a good thing.
