Cocktail Corner: Frozen Berry Dream

Normally when I see someone dropping an ice cube into their glass of wine, I shake my head in shame. But truth is, those people may have been setting the landscape for a hot new trend. Even Moet & Chandon has caught on, and is introducing Ice Imperial, the first champagne crafted specifically to be enjoyed over ice.

I love being a trendsetter, but to that point, that means taking this concept one step further now. So, given the sweltering heat of summer, I'm thinking an icy treat is in store for all. Cue tones playing "Jack and Jill went up the hill." Its the Ice Cream Man coming! Well, sort of.

Check in all this week to enjoy adult icy treats with a twist, starting with this Berry Dream from The Cocktail Guru, Jonathan Pogash, sure to satisfy your sweet tooth:
