People are freaking out about this new drink called frosé

Yes way, frosé.

Drinking wine is about to get a whole lot better ... if that's even possible.

Bar Primi in New York City has created a new drink called frosé, which is essentially a slushie version of rosé, and people are loving it.

The Italian eatery's frozen rosé quickly gained popularity after its release and is now flooding Instagram.

Bar Primi's general manager, Justin Sievers, came up with the idea for the frozen drink while thinking of ideas for summer.

"Somebody said something like, "Man, it's rosé season, what should we do?" And I was like, what if we just dump a bunch of rosé into the slushie machine and see if it freezes. So we did!" he told Insider.

Insider posted a video about the frosé drink on Wednesday, and it has already been viewed more than 6 million times, earned over 45,000 likes and shared nearly 40,000 times.

The drink is more than just wine, though. The bartenders at the restaurant in Noho mix it with vermouth and puréed strawberries to make it a little more sweet.

"Everyone seems to love it. As soon as it hit the tables, everyone sees it and is like, 'What is that? I want one,' " Sievers said.

People don't just drink it either. They make sure to take a sweet snap and share it on Instagram.

"What dreams are made of," one girl captioned her Instagram picture.

Bar Primi also serves a slushie version of a Negroni, which is made with vermouth and Campari.

Can't make it to Bar Primi? Bon Appétit has come up with its own version of frosé that can be made at home without a slushie maker.

The recipe calls for pouring a bottle of rosé wine into a 13" by 9" pan and freezing for about six hours, until almost solid.

Once it's done, the frozen wine should be scraped into a blender and mixed up with 2½ ounces lemon juice, one cup of crushed ice, and 3½ ounces of strawberry syrup. Freeze it again for a half hour and blend once more.

The strawberry syrup is made by boiling ½ cup of water and a ½ cup sugar until the sugar dissolves and then mixing in 8 oz. of hulled, quartered strawberries.

Let the mixture sit for a half hour before the berries are strained out of the now-infused syrup.

Man trying to kill weeds with torch ... torches his garage

How's this for second-guessing your decisions?

As if there wasn't a better way to kill weeds — you know, like any one of hundreds of products you can buy at your local home or hardware store or just some elbow grease and gloves — an Ohio man resorted to a blow torch.

He might have killed the weeds.

But the bigger casualty was his detached garage.

The Springfield News-Sun reports firefighters were called to the home about 4 a.m. Thursday to find the garage engulfed in flames.

Officials say losses from the garage, which also was storing tools and appliances, are between $10,000 and $15,000.

The cost of embarrassment? Priceless.

Pawn shop says they’re not Dick’s in AR-15 sign

A pawn shop in South Carolina is using the backlash against Dick's Sporting Goods recent policy change of not selling guns, to advertise that they sell guns and aren't Dick's.

The Crossroads Pawn and Audio in Little River, S.C., put up the sign last week which reads, "We sell AR-15's because we're not Dick's."

The company also posted a photo of the sign to their Facebook page Tuesday, which was met with mostly supportive comments.



Barbara Davey, a manager of the shop, spoke to local TV station WPDE and said, "It was a simple marketing idea is all it was."

She said that the sign was met with some pushback, but has brought in more business.

"We have a few people, you know, who weren't in favor of the sign but our positive feedback really outweighed that negative feedback," said Davey.

The store posted a statement on Monday explaining their stance on guns: "An AR15 is NOT a combat weapon or a tactical assault rifle. In no way are the horrific massacres happening to our children and in our schools acceptable. This violence must stop."

They also support the NRA.



In February, Dick's, based in Findlay, announced that they would no longer sell assault-style weapons and restrict gun sales to those older than 21.

Crash dumps 40,000 pounds of chicken feathers on highway

A semi made a fowl mess when it rolled over on Interstate 5 north of Tacoma: It dumped about 40,000 pounds of chicken feathers across the roadway.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Rick Johnson says the driver told investigators he fell asleep at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday and lost control of the truck, which hit a guardrail and overturned.


The truck was hauling the feathers from a Foster Farms poultry facility to West Coast Reduction, a rendering company based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The company's website says it recycles animal byproducts into ingredients for many items, including pet feed and soap.

The News Tribune newspaper of Tacoma reports that the highway backed up for 11 miles as crews worked to scoop up the feathers. All lanes reopened by about 7:30 a.m.

Johnson said the driver would be cited for negligent driving.
