To all you naysayers (and there were at least two of you) who scoffed at my patriotic snow cone idea......suck it! (no, literally, I mean, suck on the multicolored ice that is my 4th of July snow cone.)
But back to the snowcone....
After finding this snow cone maker, I forced my family (and a few friends) to brainstorm various ways that we could concoct a patriotic snow cone.
We settled on juicing out own fruit, strawberries for the red color and blueberries for blue, but they came out a bit purple.
Then we put the snow cone maker to the test!
Perfect shaved ice! (Yes, that is a bottle of Belvedere on the kitchen counter. The grown ups received a different but equally refreshing version of the snow cone.)
We added the colors and voila!
Okay, so the blueberry juice looked more brown than blue. I tried to locate a country with a red, white and brown flag, but no such flag exists.
The kids loved them.
And so did the grown ups!
