Kelvin Slush Co. (Kelvin), the first and only certified organic cocktail mix specifically formulated for making premium frozen cocktails, recently launched its newest flavor, Frosé (aka frozen rosé). Made with organic peach and strawberry juices, the new base slush flavor is the sixth in a series that includes citrus, piña colada, margarita, ginger and tea, and has quickly become the company’s best seller.

Kelvin started as a food truck on the streets of Brooklyn in 2010 selling organic non-alcoholic slushies to thirsty New Yorkers. Taking a cue from their loyal customers—who always brought flasks to the truck to spike their slushies—Kelvin began collaborating with bars and restaurants to create and serve custom, premium frozen cocktails.

Now solely focused on the wholesale channel across the USA and Canada, Kelvin has revolutionized the frozen cocktail category by going beyond traditional “fruit” flavors (often made with artificial ingredients and high-fructose corn syrup), which limit restaurants and bars to frozen fruit cocktails. Kelvin’s award-winning versatile base flavors feature high quality all-natural ingredients, which allow operators to create and customize almost any cocktail – including classic cocktails – in frozen form.

It took the company one year to perfect its Frosé recipe. Making a well-crafted frozen drink requires the perfect balance of sugar, alcohol and flavor profiles to freeze correctly and taste just right when frozen. The Standard Spa Miami was the first to put Kelvin’s Frosé recipe on its menu, where it immediately became their best-selling drink and caught the attention of neighboring restaurants and bars. The Kelvin Frosé is now served at leading restaurants and bars across the country, including: Eataly (New York), Soho House (Chicago), Malibu Farm (Malibu), The Edition Hotel (Miami Beach) and Stay Gold (Austin).

“Our new Frosé organic cocktail mix has been a game-changer,” says Zack Silverman, co-founder, Kelvin Slush Co. “Through May, our year over year sales are up more than 90 percent. We anticipate this will be our best year-to-date.”

Kelvin’s premium cocktail mix can be used in any non-carbonated frozen drink, slush or granita machine by combining the following ingredients in a slush machine: 1 bottle Kelvin Organic Frosé Mix, 4 bottles Rosé Wine, 0.5 Liters of Vodka (or other white spirit), and 1.5 gallons of water. The premium mix can also be used in a blender at home.

Kelvin is available for bars and restaurants in the Continental U.S. via food and liquor distributors, including: US Foods, Sysco, Baldor Foods, Shamrock Foods, Spec’s, Vin Sauvage, Julius Silvert, Rader Foods, and Tampa Beverage Solutions. Kelvin is also available on Amazon by the 64oz. bottle for consumers at home for $34.95 (makes approximately 37 cocktails).

All Kelvin products are USDA Organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, kosher and proudly made in the USA. Kelvin does not use any artificial flavors, ingredients, colors or preservatives.
