All-White Frappé

A frappé is a combination of almost any kind of liqueurs served over crushed or shaved ice. As its name implies, a frappé is a dessert drink. It also makes an ideal finale to a meal in lieu of the usual ice cream or cake. To make a perfect frappé, you must think outside the box of cookies. The skillful balance of liqueurs provides a dessert in and of itself. If you are watching some calories but not all of them, the frappé may be the start of your new diet regimen.

Frappé glasses, also known as parfait glasses, are available, but you may also use a deep-saucer champagne glass. You may mix frappés fresh, but Thomas Mario, in his Playboy’s Host and Bar Book, suggests swizzling them and placing them in the freezer beforehand.
