Making your own snow cone syrup requires only three ingredients: sugar, water, and a packet of your favorite Kool-Aid flavor. Simply combine sugar and water until it's boiling, then let it simmer for three minutes. Gradually add a packet of Kool-Aid until it's completely dissolved, then pour the syrup with a funnel into a separate container, which can then be chilled in a fridge until it's ready to use.
If sugary drink powders aren't your thing, you can also make your own super-easy and all-natural DIY snow cone syrup out of fruit juice and water, a can of soda, or even a grown-up version using alcohol.
