Ingredients

  • 5 cups ice

For the Raspberry Punch Syrup:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup unflavored Original Smirnoff
  • Optional: Red food coloring

For the Blueberry Punch Syrup:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup unflavored Original Smirnoff
  • Optional: Blue food coloring

Instructions

  • Add ice 1 cup at a time to heavy duty blender and finely crush ice until it becomes snow consistency and pure white. Repeat until all ice is finely crushed then add to a container and place in the freezer.
  • To make the syrups, add water, sugar and raspberries to one medium sized pot over medium high heat and repeat with blueberry ingredients (water, sugar and blueberries) in a separate medium sized pot over medium high heat.
  • Bring both pots to a boil and continue to simmer until they reduce and colors intensify.
  • Strain each mixer into separate bowls.
  • Stir 1/4 cup of Smirnoff into each individual bowl.
  • If using, mix in separate food coloring in separate bowls to further enhance colors. (Tip: I do recommend using the blue food coloring for an authentic blue toned syrup. Without it, the blueberry punch syrup will appear more purple instead of blue. Mix some in until a darker navy blue color develops.
  • Add individual syrups to two separate squeeze bottles and refrigerate until completely cool.
  • To serve, scoop snow ice into small cups and squeeze syrup over each cup and enjoy!

Notes

Feel free to change colors by using different fruit for different holidays.
