If you're looking to add some new big-batch drinks to your repertoire, I'm here to tell you that Jerry Nevins' Sloshies is full of punny freezer cocktails for summer your friends will love to help you finish. The book doesn't come out until June 13, but I've got a sneak peak at four of its pop culture-inspired potables for you to sample below.
Nevins is the co-founder of Snow & Co., the Kansas City, Missouri pub that Paste dubbed the No. 1 Best Frozen Cocktail Bar in the U.S. back in 2014. Snow & Co. deals in well-named drinks, such as the bourbon-and-peach Miss Scarlett and the earl grey-based Rikki Tikki Toddy. At least two of Snow & Co.'s signature cocktails — the Limey Bastard and the Sunshine Boulevard — made it into Sloshies, but with 102 recipes between its covers, Nevins' book has much more than his restaurant's menu to offer the at-home bartender.
The freezer cocktail recipes included below are full of inside jokes that make them perfect for theme nights, but I think you'll want to make them anytime the summer heat hits and you just need a slushie. Check out the four Sloshies recipes excerpted below, and be sure to pick up the book when it hits store shelves on June 13.
