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:

2 shots Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1 shot amaretto almond liqueur
1/2 cup half-and-half
Pour above ingredients into a blender with 6 ice cubes. Blend on high until the ice is crushed, and serve in a highball glass.Read more: Spunky Monkey recipe http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink2214.html#ixzz22K3vmgRy
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)!
