Boozy Red, White & Blue Snow Cones

Clinton Kelly

Here’s an adult drink to make you feel like a kid again from my former co-worker, the adorable Clinton Kelly. 

Ingredients
1 c sugar
1/2 c water
ice

For red syrup
1 c strawberries, halved
¼ c white rum

For blue syrup
juice of 1 lime
¼ c blue curacao

Directions
Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, and then reduce to a simmer, and cook for two minutes.

For red syrup: Pour ½ cup of the syrup over the strawberries. Allow to macerate for 1 hour, then puree in a blender with the white rum. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and reserve.

For blue syrup: Combine remaining syrup, lime juice, and curacao. Stir to combine completely. Chill syrups until ready to serve.

To make ice: Use a snow cone machine or blend ice in a blender (you may have to do this in batches, keeping each batch in the freezer as you make the next one.

Scoop crushed ice into glasses, then squirt syrups over packed, crushed ice and enjoy!
