Snow Cones: The Venerable Summer Treat

Snow ConesGetting A Delicious Artisanal Makeover At The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.

Remember those long ago hot summer days when nothing tasted better or cooled you down faster than a slushy snow cone, frozen mounds packed into little white cone cups. Why not experience that great memory with a very definite adult twist?

No need to chase the snow cone truck down your street, beginning June 1st The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. Lobby Bar and Lounge will be featuring a revolving menu of libation-tastic snow cones that come in several vodka and herb infused topped flavors including Lemonade Thyme, Strawberry Basil, and Blueberry Mojito. Think granita with an extra flavorful kick – it’s frozen, it’s fun and it’s the drink of the season.

For the junior Ritz-Carlton guest and those who crave this summer cooler with lots of fresh flavor but a little less “kick,” a revolving menu of non-alcoholic versions will be available opening with Cotton Candy.

For more information or reservations for The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C., please call the hotel directly at (202) 835-0500, a travel professional, or visit www.ritzcarlton.com/en/properties/washingtondc.
