Minnesota Frost

Minnesota Frost
This is the type of cocktail that one invents when it's minus 7 degrees outside with 5" of snow and there is only Grain Belt beer and Smirnoff Ice in the house. To give my cocktail its faint, bluish color, I added just a dash of Blue Curacao. If you don't like the flavor of blue curacao, you can also use blue Gatorade or blue food coloring, or leave it out altogether.


  • 1 bottle of Premium Grain Belt beer (or any light Minnesotan beer)
  • 1 bottle of Smirnoff Ice
  • Sprite or 7-Up
  • 1 tsp. Blue Curacao (optional)
Pour the beer 1/3 of the the way in a tall, frosty beer glass. Top it off with 1/3 of the Smirnoff Ice and 1/3 of Sprite or 7-Up. Slowly add the Blue Curacao. For maximum hangover, drink the cocktail really fast.

The head will be very frothy and it will remind you of a Minnesota winter.
