Recipe: Saffron Vodka Mango Snow Cone

Monday, December 22, 2008

For the first time in my life I’m a bit off put about the color of mango and saffron. However, for the sake of a tasty snow cone, I remind myself that I am confident of my snow’s origin. Good thing it rewards me for such meditations.

Alcoholic snow cones? You bet. Can’t let kids have all the good things.

This golden treat is based off of Sub Rosa’s Golden Orb recipe concocted to show off their Saffron Vodka commingling with mango.

Saffron Vodka Mango Elixir for Snow Cones

makes over 10 servings


Pack clean fresh snow into a cup or paper cone. Drizzle the Elixir over the top and enjoy!

Some tips-

Frank Zappa would approve, given his 1974 song about yellow snow. This recipe looks a little on the sweet side but maybe the lime balances it out. Can you taste the Saffron vodka? I love mango. So, once the two feet of snow disappears in Portland, do we have to go up to Mt. Hood to get snow or simply invest in one of those retro ice-shavers?! Will have to give this one a try while the snow is still here.

Yes and yes. It is sweet on purpose as it is cold- the colder the dessert, the harder it is for our taste buds to detect sweetness. If this were a warm drink it would need hardly any sweet to it. And yes- the saffron flavor shines through very well.

I figure ice in a blender will work when the snow is gone- or make up a simple syrup free batch and drizzle over ice cream.

What fun! Of course, I’m in Georgia and I have no snow, but the alternate ideas might work :)

Wow ? I would never have thought this one up in a million years. Saffron in your snowcone? Nice touch!

P.S. LOVE the yellow snow comment above :)

With what do you make your snow/ice? Or are you simply going outside? =)

Thanks for sharing that.

I’m a little put off by the “yellow snow” but am sure if I close my eyes and eat it I think it is going to taste pretty good.

Right now it seems like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
