Bar Freezies

Instead of umbrellas

Hi! First idea posted. Picture this: you are in a bar, and order a drink. Instead of a frilly umbrella or slice of fruit on a wee sword, you get a colourful freezie in your drink. The flavour could compliment your drink (not beer or wine, most likely). For example, a red cherry flavoured freezie in a tropical rum drink or a blue raspberry freezie in your zombie - whatever. It would be really cheap and keep your drink cool. I tried it myself (red freezie in a rum and coke) and was impressed enough to run the idea past your generous brains.

I looked around the site for anything similar, but only came up with beer ice-cubes (good idea!).

       why can't you have all that stuff? not enough room in the glass - get a bigger glass. croissant for you.

       [blissmiss] a freezie is coloured, flavoured, sweetened water in a plastic tube, designed to be frozen, then eaten by pushing up on the bottom of the tube (sort of). Ill add a link.   

       [po] "get a bigger glass" - now THAT's innovation.

       trouble is most of my friends say *smaller*, po.

       [ravenswood] It is very like a popsicle without a stick (or sticks). Maybe like an iced-lolly?   

       Coffee flavoured would be cool. In a cold, alcoholic, coffee-based drink, that is.

       They are also called "Otter Pops". The best flavors are red and purple [nod to the recent Kool-Aid post].   

       I add my croissant to the baker's dozen I'm sure you'll get here. Something tells me you've got more than beginner's luck going for you.   

       Welcome!

       "Something tells me you've got more than beginner's luck going for you."   

       Thanks! and thanks for the warm welcome. I hope to live up to your high standards.

       think you are wrong 1% - I hope! (2nd thoughts, you are probably right!)
po, Jun 19 2002
  

       Great idea! I'm wondering if you had in mind putting the freezie in the drink with holes poked in the plastic for a sort of time-release effect. btw, what does your innovative employer think of this suggestion? love, Dad

       Wonderful idea -- now I've a way to get the kids to tag along to the oasis. Locally, the trick is to put a corked, supercooled, and shooter-fueled test tube into a mixed drink. mmmm

       I suppose the next logical step is alcoholic Squishies.

       Three words, rank in order of importance:
Squish
Fork
Sprite

       What's a squishie? The same as a freezie?
RayfordSteele, Jun 21 2002
  

       And that would now be a bakers dozen, hopefully you'll get more. Nice first idea, will have to try at some point.
kaz, Jun 21 2002
  

       In the Simpsons, a squishie is the same thing as a slurpee, or a slushie. Partially frozen drink, usually soda or fruit flavor.
StarChaser, Jun 21 2002
  

       Sounds like a margarita.
waugsqueke, Jun 21 2002
  

       Honestly, I'm beginning to think that a "new breed" of freezie/Otter Pop would need to be invented to make this work. I've found so far that the flavour of the freezies is pretty strong in a drink.   

       [econoclast] - no plastic, just pop it in your drink (for bartenders, customer would likely drink faster avoid the freezie melting, and then be ready for another!)
Matty, Jun 21 2002
  

       Well if they have enough alcohol in them, I suppose so, [bobofthefuture]. But, as we all know, it's hard to get alcohol to freeze, given your normal freezer. At least, where the alcohol level is high enough to burn, I'd imagine.   

       I have to say that looks like a great drink, in my head!
