Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe.
Sometimes, all we really need is a quiet place to grab a cool cocktail. That's why The Arrogant Butcher, Sam Fox's Downtowm Phoenix endeavor inside CityScape, is one of our favorites Downtown -- especially this time of year. On a Monday night, we easily grabbed a spot at the bar and enjoyed a drink that brought back childhood memories of our favorite warm weather icy treat: Snow cones, baby.
The Polish Fix is our new summer cocktail fix, piled high with crushed ice, drizzled with smashed berries and loaded with vodka.

1 1/2 oz. Belvedere Vodka
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
1 oz. raspberry slurry (muddled raspberries in simple syrup)
In a rocks glass, combine vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Load a glass with crushed ice the same way you would a snow cone, packing that puppy high with icy goodness. Drizzle raspberry slurry over the top.
Warning: A mound of crushed ice plus vodka may equal some slurry words.
