Frosty the Cocktail

​ A particularly giddy (and macabre) holiday reveler in a much colder part of the country created her own Frosty the Snowman cocktail (aka Frosty-tail) this weekend -- and it was too cute not to share.

The drink is a combo of snow (the real thing!), diet ginger ale and Absolut Citron, made festive (unless you're Frosty) with a "Defrosty" kit including freezable plastic carrots and coal. You can buy your own kit for next year -- we found one on amazon.


Almost makes us wish we were snowbound!
