George Clooney has gone from smoking hot to ice cold.

A Chicago cocktail lounge froze the actor’s face inside an ice cube for a fancy new boozy drink that will debut on his 58th birthday, May 6.

The costly cocktail will set you back $25 and is made with Casamigos Reposado Tequila, Carpano Antica vermouth, Crème de banana liqueur, vanilla bean simple syrup, honeyed apricot and smoked hickory. It’ll be served through fall at The Bassment, located in the Windy City’s River North neighborhood.

The mix makes for “a sweet yet boldly flavored concoction that would do George proud,” according to The Bassment.

Clooney’s handsome face is printed on paper and then frozen into the ice cube.

The speakeasy that opened in 2015 offers live music on Wednesday through Saturday nights, but the adventure begins before you even step inside. The entrance is through a “secret” door hidden behind a cigar shop.

Design is based on the 1960s British invasion with images of rock icons decorating the walls and the Union Jack adorning everything from a refrigerator to couches.

Clooney isn’t the only pop culture icon to have inspired a cocktail here. Other sips include the Bowie, an $18 blend of Remy Martin 1738, Highland Park 12, Gran Classico, orange bitters and smoke.

Another regular creative cocktail here is The Bathtub ($20), a mini bathtub topped with a rubber duck and filled with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, lemon, cucumber jalapeno syrup, St. Germain and lemon foam.
