Snow cones are a great treat to have in the summertime because they help you stay cool when the weather is scorching hot. These cocktail snow cones turn the traditionally kid-friendly icy treats into adult-friendly shaved ice with the addition of booze.
To make these boozy snow cones, begin by picking a cocktail you'd like to turn into a yummy icy dessert. Todd from Honestly Yum offers several cocktail options such as a Pina Colada, Gimlet, Bramble and Strawberry Pisco. For each of the desserts, all you have to do is turn your favorite cocktail into a syrup that can be drizzled over shaved ice. For example, to make the Pina Colada snow cone, mix mango, lime juice, simple syrup and tequila in a blender. Then pour your fruity syrup over top of shredded ice and enjoy.
