How To Make Snow Cones

Snow cones are associated with kids, ice cream trucks and summer. But this simple frozen treat gets an adult makeover with flavors from coffee to limoncello. Create a dessert bar loaded with flavored syrups, coffees and liquors and let your guests make their own frozen dessert.
