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.
A Roy Rogers is a non-alcoholic mocktail made with cola and grenadine syrup and is garnished with a maraschino cherry. It is named after the actor and singer Roy Rogers and is a popular and easy to make soft drink.
A Fluffy Duck is a creamy cocktail containing gin, advocaat and orange liqueur and some consider it to be a good hangover cure. Served in a highball glass, it packs a punch; try it the next time you are feeling delicate after overindulging.
