(NYPost)   Phrosties, a boozy slushie sold and delivered over social media, have become an under-the-radar hit in NYC: "After the first sip, you're loving the sugar. After the third, you're thinking how pretty the colors look and why can't you feel your lips?"   (nypost.com) divider line 60

Strange the casual tone of the article describing what is essentially an illicit drug operation.  Imagine the hype if it contained pot.

I'm surprised the alcohol stayed frozen.

On one hand, I'm all for freedom to sell booze like this. On the other hand, who knows what other crap they'll put in it.

That reminds me of doing jello shots at the Helm bar in LaCrosse for some reason.

So, much like tobacco and marijuana, it's not about the taste?

I don't smoke and never have but I would rather eat a cigarette than be forced to drink a Four Loko.  It is worse than swill.  How a person could consume one, is simply astonishing.

Hey, Subby--down here we call what you've described a daiquiri.

And they are available at drive-thru places and in so many flavors.

Exactly. Who here hasn't made crazy-ass frozen beverages for party guests or friends? I think most of us would admit to boozing up a watermelon or two in our youth..or this past weekend. But this is unlicensed, unregulated, undocumented, unEVERYTHING.  You have no idea what is going into that drink.  

Just seems like a needless risk when I can just fire up the BlendTec and make boozy swamp juice slushies myself.

Came here to say this. It's regulated, cheaper (kinda) and you don't have to worry about some crackhead putting God knows what into it. Get with it, New York.

There's a chain daiquiri "bar" that does these. It's not new. Looks like the closest one to NYC is Atlantic City though.

It's unregulated, so therefore illegal unless certain " standards"  are met, and don't forget, it's all about $$$afety. Somebody is pissed they're not getting their cut, ahem, licensing fee.

As a pot conniseur, I can assure you that for some of us it *is* about the taste. It is a very important component of the experience...

I love scotch and I absolutely hate sugary drinks but anyone who thinks that what the get drunk on says anything meaningful about a person or their masculinity is a insecure pussy.  Grow a pair. Drink what you like.  Real men don't give a shiat about their stupid machismo image.  That's for self obsessed idiots who haven't the first clue about what being a "man" really is.

A man takes care of, protects and provides for his friends and family, a man does the right thing rather than the popular thing, and a most importantly a man doesn't give a fark about what others think about him.

Serious question... Is it difficult to find booze in NYC? There must be large neighborhoods with no liquor stores or bars if people are in such dire straits they need to text someone and wait around for a few hours hoping someone shows up with Kool Aid / Everclear mixed in a plastic bottle.

Heh, no skinny Jeans here, I don't enjoy having my equipment crushed.  Maybe I should lighten up but honestly of all the things that bother me, insecure douchebags trying to define 'manly' in terms of superficial bullshiat ranks somewhere between conspiracy theorists and nerds who hate everything.

First time I had it I was drinking with friends poolside in Miami, it tasted like liquid hell, so we moved on to other stuff. As it got warmer and flatter, it started to taste better.

Second and last time I had it, we let it get warm and flat and drank it first to make sure it wasn't just the booze killing the taste the 1st time.

Sure enough we thought it was better warm. Still bad but better.

minors? The only kind of people who would pay $10 for a bottle of that when they could get a 750ml bottle of cheap vodka and make their own drinks. Or morons.....it is "social media" which is littered with morons.

Good point.  I don't know why I assumed that an unlicensed liquor delivery service would be above selling to minors.

Thank you!  I was worried I was the only one who was bothered by that.

And also:
Workers with coolers full of Phrosties, which come in plastic bottles, arrive in a couple of hours.

A couple of hours?? At that point, you'd have time to get coolaid and booze and freeze it yourself.

Daiquiris are so Not New York that they have to be unregulated, social media linked, AND potentially lethal to make it in New York.

Honestly, I don't think the people who are buying it are the kind of people who can legally buy booze anyways.  Me thinks underage kids is the target market here.
