In Disney’s Frozen, Queen Elsa mistakenly turns her sister’s heart to ice. When Tanzy/iPic master mixologist Adam Seger frosts El Corazon, on the other hand, it’s no accident. Seger utilizes liquid nitrogen to instantly crystallize the cocktail’s ingredients at -189 degrees Celsius, producing a smoky dry-ice effect that’s great for parties. “[It’s] completely safe to consume,” he says. “The air that we breathe contains nitrogen.”
Start the magic by combining 1 3/4 oz. El Jimador Tequila Blanco with the juice of half a lemon in a stainless steel mixing bowl. Add 1 3/4 oz. juice mix (equal parts passion fruit, pomegranate and blood orange). Slowly pour in liquid nitrogen and whisk for 45 seconds. Scoop into a martini glass rimmed with salt and crushed Tellicherry peppercorns for an adult tonic that warms a frozen heart.
