Snow in Summer
Snow cones are one of summer's quintessential treats, and while I'll always have love for the Snoopy Sno-Cone Maker, there is actually a sophisticated way to serve up the icy concoction? For starters, Nature's Flavors offers some grown-up syrups, including almond, butter rum, gooseberry, papaya and lychee. Or you can opt for a recipe like espresso or cosmopolitan slushies. Serving up a snow cone in a martini glass or tumbler will also add a touch of sophistication, but if you're outdoors, I suggest these colorful, melamine cones. They'll keep your guests' hands from getting cold, and unlike paper cups, they're reusable.
