Expert Tips

  • Tip: The beer snow is great made with lager, pilsner or Hefeweizen beer.
  • Tip : For a nonalcoholic option, replace beer with nonalcoholic ginger beer, ginger ale or lemon-lime soda.
  • Tip : Cover and chill any remaining syrups up to 2 weeks. The syrups are great added to iced tea or mixed with sparkling water for a homemade Italian fruit soda.
  • To Serve : Scoop into snow cone papers or lowball cocktail glasses. Drizzle with desired syrup.
