To keep the adult guests cool at our 4th of July party this year, we’re creating a fun, boozy snow cone station! It’s a little nostalgic twist on the classic snow cones we all loved growing up. Plus, what better holiday than the 4th of July to surprise your guests with a cold, frozen cocktail treat? Your friends will be giddy making their own boozy snow cones!
For the snow cone ice, I called my local ice shop (yes, these exist!) and had them make four 40 pound bags of shaved ice. You’ll need to have a large freezer to keep all of that ice or an extra one outside. Also, a little tip… pick the ice up the day you’re going to use it. That way it won’t melt and then freeze into a huge ice cube! You’ll want shaved ice for your snow cones and if you pick it up the same day, you can use a disposable cooler to store some in as well.
