Maybe it was the "We Ordered Illegal Alcoholic Slushies and (Barely) Lived to Tell the Tale" headline that did them in—in that firsthand account of consuming a Phrostie (an alcoholic slushie briefly sold over Instagram), Molly Fitzpatrick writes, "We were tanked. I was gnawing chunks off a plain bagel that had been left out in the kitchen since morning." She goes on to describe the effects as "borderline hallucinogenic." That was one of many reports on the drink, which is now being banned by The Man, it seems.

Phrosties showed up sometime in the past year, but didn't start getting widespread attention until mid-May. The unregulated alcoholic drink could only be purchased through a private Instagram account (which has now been pretty much wiped clean and made public). At the time, Grub Street noted they were $10 each (including delivery), and came in flavors like Blue Hawaiian, Dragonberry Colada, La Phiesta, and Hero. Each one tasting like "frozen Kool-Aid, mixed with Red Bull and spiked with 150-proof Everclear."

Senator Chuck Schumer complained about the "company," and says they'll "have to prove [they're] not selling to kids if [they] want to stay in business," according to the Post. Schumer explained, "A 12-year-old can probably buy these ‘sloshies’ online, get it and enjoy it because it’s filled with fruit juice and fruit punch and all the things that taste sweet and nice." The Phrostie-makers are "already are under investigation by the State Liquor Authority because they are unregulated and unlicensed," an SLA spokesperson told the paper.

Just put vodka or gin in your Del's Frozen Lemonade. There, summer is saved.
