Traditionally drunk at Christmas time, the Snowball was particularly popular in the 1970s, but made a comeback in 2012 after Nigella Lawson admitted to being partial to one.
A Snowball is a mixture of Advocaat and lemonade and as with so many cocktails, there are a variety of differing recipes. The addition of gin is a warming surprise and really adds to the flavour. Buying a shop bought commercial version of Advocaat is fine, making it yourself really isn’t necessary.
The overriding flavour in the Tanglefoot cocktail is rum, with a lovely citrusy sharpness from the lemon to follow. The orange juice adds some sweetness to the drink and compliments the other ingredients perfectly.
A Dirty Shirley is the alcoholic version of the kids’ favourite, Shirley Temple. It’s still sweet and refreshing, but with a kick.
