This summer sees the launch of Frozé concentrated mix for frozen cocktail machines from Peter Spanton Drinks.
With a growing number of pubs, bars, hotels and restaurants tapping into the frozen drink trend, Frozé – pronounced “fro-say” – is a concentrated version of Peter Spanton’s successful Salted Paloma Grapefruit Soda.
Based on the classic paloma cocktail, Frozé can be served from a frozen cocktail machine either as a premium soft drink in its own right, or mixed with a spirit such as tequila, vodka or vermouth to create a Frozé cocktail.
Former London restaurateur Peter Spanton originally developed his own range of adult soft drinks and mixers in 2011. He said: “Frozé is a natural extension of our range, with a strong appeal to customers seeking something beyond ordinary.
“Salted Paloma is one of our most popular bottled varieties, blending grapefruit juice, lime, and sea salt. Although tequila is traditional in a paloma, Frozé combines well with a range of spirits to create sophisticated frozen drinks.”
Among the bars serving Frozé is Baltic near Waterloo in London, where bar manager Karol Terejlis, said: “Our customers enjoy frozen cocktails all year round, and we want to offer the same quality and appeal in drinks from our frozen cocktail machine as we do with all our alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails. Frozé enables us to do that, and has already earned its place on our drinks list.”
Chris Hare, brand manager of premium tequila Cazcabel, has trialled the product and plans to serve it at festival bars running throughout the summer. He said: “Peter Spanton’s new Paloma Frozé is a game changer – it tastes great, it’s well balanced and people keep coming back for more. It also works perfectly with my Cazcabel Blanco tequila, and really lets the flavours shine through.”
Peter Spanton Drinks suggested serves for Frozé include:
- For a non-alcoholic, guilt-free Paloma, serve Frozé with charred rosemary syrup and lime garnish;
- For an alcoholic version, add tequila or mezcal to Frozé and serve with a garnish of lime zest, salt and chilli.
Frozé is available in concentrate packs, with 1 litre of concentrate making just over 6 litres of Frozé serve before adding alcohol.
