Sno Cone Syrup Recipes

The syrups here are bright blue, pink, red, purple...lots of artificial stuff going on there without a doubt.

        Have you tried making a simple syrup infused with herbs like spearmint or rosemary or bay? I've used these in Italian sodas.

        1. Michael Chiarello did two versions of Italian ice recently. They syrups looked like the right consistency.
