Forget shaken or stirred (opens in new tab) — New Yorkers want their drinks Phrosted.

Phrosties, unregulated alcoholic slushie beverages, have taken Instagram by storm and become a coveted black market item in the process. According to The Huffington Post (opens in new tab), the illegalish drinks come in exotic flavors such as Volcanic Paradise, La Phiesta, Tsunami Sunrise, and Dragonberry Colada, at ten dollars a pop. As of right now, they're only avaliable for dropoff delivery in New York City and Westchester County (sorry everyone else!). You can place an order by texting the number provided on the Phrostie Instagram account (opens in new tab), but only after you've been confirmed as a follower of their account.

We have to admit, it's a perplexing concept, but all of the sudden we're remembering the sage words of Matthew Mcconaughey in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (opens in new tab): "Phrost yourself."
