How To Make An Alcoholic Snow-Cone

Snow-cones aren’t just for kids anymore. Summer may be over in just a few weeks, but that’s even more of an incentive to take full advantage of it with these chilling beverages. They’re easier to make than you think—especially when you’re drunk!

The Basics

You’ll want to serve your custom alcoholic snow-cones in either a highball or a ‘Collins’ glass, or, if you’re particularly daring, actually use paper cones (they could get messy after a couple drinks, though). Once you mix all the ingredients, put 6-12 ice cubes in a blender and blend till frozen. Then, transfer them to your desired snow-cone receptacle and pour the mixed drink over them. Enjoy.

Pro-tip: if you’re lazy, which you certainly will be after one or two of these snow-cones, you can just put all the ingredients in a shaker and shake vigorously.

1. The Classic

2oz. Schnapps, raspberry
1oz. grenadine syrup

Special instructions: Fill glass with crushed/blended ice, then add Schnapps and 7-Up. Add grenadine and let it settle to the bottom of the glass. Carefully float the Blue Curacao over the top of the drink.
