Ah, summer vacation—always makes you yearn for that time long ago when you actually
summer vacation (jetsetting has its charms, but so did the playground).
Also makes you yearn for some Snow Cone Mojitos
right about now.
Thanks to an industrious chef at the almost
-beach-adjacent Fairmont Miramar hotel, you and your
fellow nostalgics can now stroll into the secluded Koi Pond Lounge & Garden on the hotel grounds
and order up the next grand entrant into the alcoholic-version-of-a-childhood-favorite
The rum-soaked specialties are on the menu in two flavors—the regular (aka, mint) Snow Cone
and the pomegranate—alongside new snacks like Trio of Fries
potato, truffle, parmesan) that arrive in sand pails. But there's a third option available for those who
know to ask for it, so feel free to order a Root Beer Snow Cone Mojito
for dessert. If you're
wondering what brought on this inspirational feat, the chef looked back a little further than his childhood
for all this—he was thinking about 100 years ago when the Santa Monica Pier was born.
Didn't know they had snow cone mojitos back then, but more power to him.
