When it's hot out (as in fry-an-egg-on-the-street hot), nothing feels as good as sipping a frozen cocktail.

And fortunately, top bartenders around the country are making delicious icy concoctions. All-star bartender and Liquor.com advisory board member Simon Ford convinced us of their value (and quality) a few years ago with his passionate defense of blender drinks.
