One quick way to do it is with a snow cone. A crushed ice confection that will cool anyone down on a hot day.

From it's simple beginnings as an ice cube, we'll top it off some sugary syrup flavoring that our tastebuds will really enjoy. Some people will even top it off with some sweet cream for extra flavor and others are getting more creative by topping theirs off with shaved cookie pieces and sprinkles for that extra flare.
