Video Recipe: The Ball & Biscuit's Frozen Whiskey Drink

A dangerously delectable cocktail worth sipping this St. Patrick’s Day
Since opening in 2010, the Ball & Biscuit has been slinging award-winning potables worthy of a place at the forefront of the craft-cocktail movement. So when one of its seasoned mixologists raves about a recent pour, we set our preferences aside and say, “We’ll have whatever she’s having.” Here, general manager Kendall Lockwood shares the recipe behind the Frozen Irish in Indy, a “classed-up slushy” that had veteran bartenders glued to the counter at the annual Tales of the Cocktail convention last July. But beware: Lockwood warns that between the creamy, milkshake-like consistency and the potent coffee grounds, this frozen whiskey drink is best when sipped very, very slowly.
