Summer in Kansas City makes adults do crazy things. I’ve seen grown men attempt to squeeze their entire bodies into kiddie pools, people create frozen blended drinks in a Magic Bullet outside of the infomercial and beer lovers go all Demolition Man on their favorite craft brews, slowly killing them in a frosted mug [here’s why you shouldn’t].
None of these solutions address the true problem of heat. The only way cool down is to ice your core. And the way you do that is with a frozen cocktail. That’s why USA Today named Snow & Company’s icy drinks to its hottest trends of the summer, alongside savory cocktails and spirits made from ancient grains. If you’d like to play at home, Shape has the recipe for Snow’s Sunshine Boulevard made with Boulevard Wheat, vodka, simple syrup and orange and lemon juice.
Snow & Company (1815 Wyandotte) is working on a second location in Gladstone, as well as some new cocktails for the fall. Co-owner Jerry Nevins is looking at adding a drink made with Orchard Apricot liqueur, Bulleit bourbon, lemon juice and milk.
