Hibiscus Snow Cones
"When hibiscus is steeped in water, it creates a red drink, an essential menu item of Juneteenth," says writer Nicole A. Taylor, sharing the Juneteenth memories that inspired her to create this Hibiscus Snow Cone. In this playful icy dessert, Taylor riffs on tradition, using dried hibiscus blossoms to make a sweet, tangy syrup for a celebratory snow cone. Whipped cream and crushed pink peppercorns add a final flourish. To make snow cones at home, you'll want to grab a home ice-shaving machine, like the Little Snowie Max, which, pulverizes cubed ice to a fine powder.
