Drink of the Month: The Ice Queen at The Golden Girl Rum Club

Last summer, The Golden Girl Rum Club got a frozen drink machine and they're whipping up some tasty concoctions.

When it comes to sweets, I’m basically a 5-year-old trapped in a 32-year-old’s body. This comes with its fair share of challenges, including still getting googly-eyed anytime I see an ICEE machine. That’s why I was ecstatic when I found out The Golden Girl Rum Club (137 Park Central Square, Springfield) got a frozen drink machine last summer. But you won’t find those syrupy, way-too-sweet (but, in my very childish opinion, delicious) concoctions here. Instead GG blends up creative frozen cocktails made with quality liquors and mixers and serves two flavors at a time. We recently tried The Ice Queen made with Campari liqueur, Dolin Blanc Vermouth, Plantation 3 Stars white rum, passion fruit and grapefruit juices and Demerara syrup. One sip in, and I was sold on its smooth-yet-icy texture. It’s a summer-themed party for the mouth! Grapefruit dominates the flavor profile, and the rum pops out for a strong finish. Although the frozen flavors the bar offers often change, this creation is returning in November when this magazine hits newsstands. All hail the queen!
