Chipotle is adding a new frozen cocktail to the menu just in time for warmer weather. According to The Daily Meal, the chain is serving a frozen Paloma at its NEXT Kitchen test location in New York.

The slushie is somewhat perplexingly called the Frozen Paloma Margarita. Don’t let the last word throw you off, though, because it’s just a frozen Paloma (some Chipotle locations also serve frozen Margaritas as of last year if that’s more your speed). A traditional Paloma, one of the most popular cocktails in Mexico, is a mix of tequila, grapefruit soda and lime. Chipotle’s Frozen Paloma Margarita is made with tequila, grapefruit juice, agave syrup and citrus. It’s served in a 14-ounce plastic cup and sells for $6.20, likely putting it on the list of cheapest places to buy a boozy frozen drink in the Big Apple.

For now, it’s only available at the NEXT Kitchen near Union Square. NEXT Kitchen is Chipotle’s only public test kitchen, and the only place people can get a taste of new items before they’re put on menus across the country. It’s the spot responsible for everyone’s first taste of Chipotle queso, but don’t hold that against it. A frozen Paloma or two and you’ll forget all about the widely panned cheese dip. The Paloma tasters at The Daily Meal reported it to be “not just sweet, but also tangy and boozy all at once,” and warned that “this slushy can make you sloshy.”

If the Frozen Paloma Margarita makes it out of New York and onto menus everywhere, it might be time to rethink your summer happy hour spot.
