Now, let’s get back to today’s version of this icy treat!
La Diva’s Indonesian-style Lychee Vanilla Vodka Snow Cone:
(Darling, it’s easier to make than you think!)
1. First, it’s imperative you have a food processor or some way to make ice “snow.” If you have an old fashioned hand crank one, it’ll do too!
2. Put the grater disk into the processor, put ice in feed tube and push down and process until you have filled the container. Put aside into another bowl and work fast so the ice doesn’t melt before you use it!
3. I picked the lychees up from the Asian grocery but you’ll find them in the regular grocery too either in with the canned fruit or Asian section. What? No lychees in your cupboard? Use pineapple chunks, mandarins or any other canned fruit packed in syrup.
5. Put four lychees per person into the base of the processor and for kicks, thinly slice a few kaffir lime leaves and process until smooth. Mint would be nice too. You can also leave the fruit whole if you want to eat with a spoon! (Hell, it’s YOUR fruit cocktail!) Notice my ice ready to go on the side.
