Who says snow cones are only for kids? These spiked snow cones are the perfect adult summer time treat!  

I've turned four well known martinis into delicious fun snow cones! 

These are the flavors I created:  Appletini Snow Cone, Classic Manhattan Snow Cone, Blue Lagoon Snow Cone & a Cotton Candy Snow Cone. The basic recipe entails infusing snow cone syrup with your favorite liquor. Taste the syrups after you add the alcohol and adjust the ratios to suit your own taste. If it's to sweet, add a little more alcohol. If it's to strong, add some more syrup. Have fun and experiment with different flavor combos. 

I used store bought snow cone syrup, but you can easily make your own by making a simple syrup and adding food coloring and different flavor extracts. For a spicy version, you could add some chili peppers to the simple syrup and strain them out before adding the coloring or you could also infuse the alcohol with chili peppers. Just some quick ideas. The possibile flavor combos are endless. 

They may only be snow cones, but they definitely pack a punch! *Please Drink Responsibly*

Cheers!

Love the recipes, I do think I will have to buy my snow from one of my local snowball stands. They have a shaver that truly makes the ice fluffy like snow. They will sell me the "cone of snow" without the mmmmmm juice....lol. No one will ever know it isn't the sno-ball stands treat.
Thanks, we eat a lot of these in Louisiana.
Last summer, I got a really great snow cone maker at Wal-Mart for less than $20! You use regular ice cubes instead of having to freeze water in a special container, and it uses a super sharp razor type blade that really does shave the ice. Can't recall the brand name at the moment, but the unit is shaped like a snow cone cup and comes in a number of bright, fun colors. Hope someone finds this info useful.

I'd love to try this great idea, but sadly, I'm on medication that doesn't allow me to drink! Someone out there have one for me! lol

Hi Mistie,

This sounds exactly like the machine I used. It uses ice cubes and it does shave the ice, but even after chilling the syrups, the ice melts rather quickly. They are still pretty yummy though!

p.s. I'll make sure to have one for you next time we make these!

I bought one of those machines too. The secret is to pack the snow. I watched them making snow cones at SnowBiz and they pile the snow up about 3 times higher than the cup and then smash it down as far as it will go, then pile it up high again and smash it down & round up the top. Mine used to melt the ice til I started doing it this way. Hope this helps you.

Great Tip! Thanks!

LOL! I wasn't super happy with the quality of the ice the Jelly Belly Ice Shaver produced, but it got the job done. These would definitely be better with higher quality "snow ice" like they sell at snowball stands.

Cheers!

Great idea!

on the way home from work I stop by the local shaved ice place and order a lemon lime. When i get home, it gets fortified with pre mixed margarita.

Summer afternoon relaxation without the work.

Yum! A margarita snow cone would be awesome!
They are! And really easy too. Just mix tequila in a bottle of margarita mix and keep in the fridge for whenever you want to pour over a snow cone. Great for when you've had a long hard day.
