Snow Day

Congratulations. You survived a marathon season of runny noses, frost bite, and snowstorms.

Ready for sunburn, insect bites, and heat exhaustion?

Come to think of it, maybe snow isn’t such a bad thing. Especially if it’s flavored.

Move over, gelato. It’s all about the Snow Cone Maker. It’s easy peasy. Drop in ice cubes, turn the crank, and out comes a flurry of snack-time fun. Add cherry, orange, or grapefruit syrup for flavor and color. (Add a shot of Stoli Cranberry for yourself.)

Think of it as keep-cool insurance for your outdoor warrior’s stints in the sun.

And remember: There are far worse places for snow than in a cone.
