Yes, indeed, it was one of those must-be-tough assignments that had us heading out to Collierville to investigate a cocktail. But this is no ordinary cocktail — it's the Cold Snap Cosmo, which is served in a glass made of ice. Mittens are involved!!!
The Cold Snap Cosmo was introduced last week at Bonefish Grill. The drink, created for restaurant chain by mixologist Charlotte Voisey, includes Reyka vodka, Solerno blood orange liquor, and blood orange juice and is served in a glass made of ice.
"I like it," says restaurant manager Allison Smith. "It's different, not too sweet."
The drink hits a nice balance— there's the bite of bitterness from the blood orange but tempered with sweet and sour flavors, too.
And, yes, it's cold. Special molds were created to make the ice cocktail glass.They come served in a rubber holder for easy maneuvering. Patrons can forgo the ice glass entirely and opt for the drink to be served in a martini glass.
As for the mittens, the first 25 people who order the drink get a sweet pair of mittens courtesy Reyka vodka.
The cocktail is $8.50 and will be available at all Bonefish locations through April 28th.
