This Friday we decided to start celebrating Memorial Day Weekend a little early by ordering a couple of Phrosties to our office. A lot has been said of these illegal drinks made with everclear recently and we wanted to take a walk on the wildside before they got shut down–something I would bet happens shortly.
So we did what what the internet told us to do: follow them on Instagram (@phrosties), wait for them to accept our friend request, and then finally order a few drinks via text message. Now that we’re done with the order I can say that I’m not even sure you need to do the whole Instagram dance because at no point in time were we asked for our own Instagram handle. Good thing we weren’t the police.
It took Phrosties a total of two hours from the time that we ordered them to get to our office, so make sure you plan accordingly. I don’t want to give away too much information about the person who greeted us with a cooler full of Phrosties, but they weren’t the typical person I’d expected to see.
We bought three Phrosties for $30: a hero, a strawberry lemonade, and something else I couldn’t understand. I took them back upstairs and we started drinking.
Were they good? Yes–if your opinion of “good” is very strong. Truthfully, I only had half of one because I had to go meet my girlfriends’ family and I wasn’t sold that these things didn’t have illegal drugs in them. Despite my pussyfooting, I can say with certainty that Phrosties will f*ck you up. If fact, I’ll go so far as to say that I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to have more than two of these in one long, drunken, sitting.
But unlike a lot of other people on social media, I don’t think Phrosties are the second coming of Jesus. At $10 a pop they’re well-priced, but the fact of the matter is that it takes them over an hour to get to you and you don’t know what the f*ck is in them.
Phrosties are all over the web right now so if you want to get in on the buzz, go for it sooner rather than later. But in a few months when this thing is inevitably shut down, you’re not really going to miss them very much.
