Winter is in full swing and we are well into the chilly months. You may have a countdown going until the first day of spring, but I'm a firm believer that the days go by faster if you simply embrace the cold. What's the easiest way to do so? With an icy winter cocktail, of course!
I'm loving the Frozen Terrain cocktail created by Whitney Morrow of Chicago's Drumbar with elit by Stolichnaya. Complete with a cinnamon stick-infused ice cube, the Frozen Terrain is as visually pleasing as it is delicious. With the freezing temperatures outside, the infused ice cubes are the perfect means to ‘freeze’ your cocktail while adding additional flavors in a luxurious and sophisticated way.
Embrace this winter in style with the Frozen Terrain!
