Snowball View cocktail Recipe

Snowball

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.

Manhattan View cocktail Recipe

Manhattan

A Manhattan cocktail is made with whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters. Typically, rye is the traditional whiskey of choice in a Manhattan but some mixologists prefer using Canadian whisky, bourbon, blended whiskey or Tennessee whiskey. Generally, the cocktail is stirred then strained into a cocktail glass and garnished with a twist of orange zest or Maraschino cherry.

It is thought that the Manhattan cocktail originated at the Manhattan Club in New York City in the early 1870s. However as there are prior references to various similar cocktail recipes called "Manhattan" in the 1860s, the exact history is uncertain.
