Restaurants are experimenting and ‘shaking up’ their summer cocktails by incorporating shaved ice, including Soothsayer restaurant in New York City.

Serving a refreshing Vietnamese-inpsired frozen cocktail by incorporating flavors from Southeast Asia, Soothsayer’s executive chef/owner Stephan Brezinsky combines the sweetness from the agave nectar and sake and mixed with puree from the citrusy Philippine hybrid fruit Calamansi, creating a bright, vibrant and cool flavored beverage, perfect for a hot summer day.
