Alcoholic "Snow Cones" (Inspired by Frozen)

frozen.jpg

Who doesn't love the Disney film Frozen (2013)? Based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Snow Queen, the story follows a determined princess (Anna) who goes on a mission to find her sister the Snow Queen (Elsa), who ran away after her secret icey powers stuck their kingdom in eternal winter. It is a beautiful musical about  the true love of family, self acceptance, and sacrifice. Today I'm going to share with you a fun recipe I made for alcoholic "snow cones" themed for my three favorite characters: Elsa, Anna, and the weirdly lovable snowman from their childhood-- Olaf. Enjoy!

Olaf Recipe

coconut infused vodka
 

3/4 cup organic sugar
 

1/4 cup of coconut water with pineapple
 

 ice
 

carrot for garnish

 

Here's what you do:

For the Syrup:

  1. If you're making Ana or Elsa, mix your fruit and water (for Olaf, skip this step). Really try and mash up the fruit really good.
  2. Mix the fruit and water mixture with the organic sugar in a pan and bring to a simmer, (for Olaf, mix the coconut water and organic sugar) stirring consistently until it becomes a chunky syrup. Remove from heat.
  3. Strain out any bits of whole fruit, if any. Set aside to cool.
  4. Once cooled, place in a glass container (tupperware if necessary) and store in the fridge. (These are flavored simple syrups that should last in the fridge for several months!)

For the Drink:

  1. Once you're ready to make your snow cone, crush some ice in a blender or food processor.
  2. Fill snow cone cup (or small glass) with 1 cup of crushed ice.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together 1 ounce each of the infused vodka and it's matching syrup.
  4. Pour mixture into cone or glass.
  5. Enjoy!
