Embracing cold winter (Killer Frost)

Let’s not suffer and whine because of the cold (I do it, I know), let’s use it as an inspiration!

Today’s cocktail is also available as mocktail version, updated compilation can be found in Recipes and downloads.

In reality the colour is not that green; “glacial greenblue”, sure, but not as green as it looks in the picture.

KILLER FROST

4 parts vodka

2 parts Blue Curacao

4 parts lime juice

3 parts simple syrup

3 parts orgeat syrup

8 parts cream

few dashes of Angostura bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. “Freezing” decoration, a straw.

Yes, it’s a version of Mr. Freeze… but not just a cheap trick of adding almond. Angostura bitters is the actual element that makes Killer Frost interesting: orgeat syrup makes the sweetness close to intolerable, but bitter balances it nicely.

Hmm… I haven’t made Suicide Squad compilation…yet. Okay, as the spring progresses towards summer, I’ll be introducing S. Squad characters, and eventually the compilation. Stay tuned.

 

KILLER FROST (NOT 0% MOCKTAIL, BUT 0,01% COCKTAIL)

2 parts blue grenadine

1 to 2 parts simple syrup

3 parts orgeat syrup

4 parts lime juice

8 parts cream

few dashes of Angostura bitters

Shake with ice, as above. If you shun that 0,01% (or so) alcohol, you might try experiment with bitter almond oil. Killer Frost needs some bitterness to balance all that sweetness.

 

Next time… St. Valentine’s Day! Warm and heartfelt drinks coming up 😀
