If you've been an undergrad at Mizzou, you've been to Trops, the alcoholic-frozen-slushie joint famous for fake trees and Styrofoam cups, which routinely make it outside as open-container citations waiting to happen. Snow & Co., in KC's Crossroads Arts District, is like Trops all graduated and moved to the city and grown-up. The booze in the concoctions here is all top-shelf, the fruit all fresh (bartender Kelsey Griffith says she squeezes about 600 lemons, oranges and limes a day), the flavors well to the left of Animal House. We like the one called Purple Rain, which Griffith accurately explains as "a boozy blueberry muffin but liquefied." Trops is jeans; Snow & Co. is trousers. Trops is past; Snow & Co. is future. Welcome to adulthood, graduates. It tastes better out here.
