I saw an article a while back about a Ritz-Carlton bar that was offering spiked sno-cone treats.  Since then, I’ve seen a number of variations on this idea. For the grown-ups you might want to try:

  • Margaritas poured over sno-cone ice with salt rims on the cups
  • Daiquiri mix poured over sno-cone with colored sugar on the cup rim
  • Iced coffee flavored drinks such as this creamy one that can be modified to serve as sno-cone:

Sno-cone machines grind the ice and hold it in a receptacle with a drain.  It will accept any ice as long as it is small enough to fit down the chute.  This includes most cubed ice.  It takes 1/2# of ice to make a typical sno-cone.

We have the machines for rent and the pointed paper cups and flavored syrups for sale.

The universal favorite is anything red (cherry or strawberry)!
