    Re: frosty? (frosty milk shakes)

    When a milk shake or other beverage is described as "frosty," it simply means that it is very, very cold. Cold enough that the glass or cup will form frost or condensation on it. They describe it as "frosty" in order to appeal to sweaty thirsty people in hot weather.

    Re: frosty? (frosty milk shakes)

    In the U.S., there is a fast-food restuarant chain that sells milkshakes by the trademarked name "Frosty". They are thicker than a typical milkshake -- you have to eat them with a spoon -- and when you order one, you don't say "I'd like a shake, please." Instead, you say "I'd like a Frosty, please."

    I agree with the others that in this case, "frosty" is probably an adjective that is used for emphasis to describe the milkshakes as cold. However, depending on the context and the origin of the speaker, they may mean a specific brand of milkshake.

    Please make sure that when you serve my beer, it's served in a frosty glass.
