Snowball

Snowball cocktail

Type: Cocktail

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.
