I made a simple syrup of sugar water and drink mix. It was super easy and the kids LOVED having something a bit different. We made two flavors Tropical Punch and Grape. They turned out perfect (although I really wish they would not put so much food coloring in the drink mix)
Snow Cone Syrup
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup Water
1 dry drink mix packet
Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan
Stir mixture untill sugar and drink mix are dissolved
Boil for 1 min. Let cool and pour over fresh snow. YUM!
