The Dream Cocktail is often consumed after dinner and combines 3 strong flavours; brandy, orange and aniseed.
The Godfather is a duo mixed drink made of amaretto and Scotch whisky. It is traditionally served over ice in an old-fashioned glass.
The origins of the Godfather are not entirely clear but Disaronno, an Italian amaretto liqueur producer claim that the cocktail, which appeared sometime in the 1970s, was a favourite of Marlon Brando, who played Vito Corleone in The Godfather movies.
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.
