It’s Friday! Who’s ready for a drink? This girl! I recently whipped up some adult snow cones, or granita if you will, for Evite Postmark, and since it’s as easy as combining crushed ice, fresh fruit juice and a little nip, why not enjoy one right now? It’s 5 o’clock somewhere! 

gourmet snow cones

In lieu of classic paper cones, copper mugs, typically used for Moscow Mules, add a glam touch — and the best part is you don’t even need a snow cone maker.

To get the recipe for gourmet snow cones (it’s so easy), head on over to Postmark.
