“Have a holly jolly Christmas, It’s the best time of the year”
Who doesn’t like a little treat at Christmas? Honestly this photo was so hard to take because I had to hold my board against the tree and balance the glass on it whilst taking a photo that is half decent!
Just to let you know it was actually my 17th birthday yesterday. I wasn’t sure whether to do a post about it today because I have seen before some ‘What I Got For My Birthday‘ posts but I didn’t want to seem like I was bragging. But I had a really good day. I saw my friend Charlotte and we had the best Camembert I have possibly ever had. In the evening I then went out with all of my friends to Wagamamas and it was a lot of fun!
Anyway, back to the drink, the first ever cocktail I had was a Snowball. It was an amazing homemade one. I think they are better hand made because then you can chose the amount of alcohol to the ratio of lemonade and lime you want. This is an alcoholic beverage but there are many non alcoholic snowball mocktail recipes out there too, and they taste the same as the alcoholic ones.
Most recipes say to use one part advocaat and three parts lemonade but I like to do this instead…
I didn’t have any ice left but I would usually add a few cubes of ice into the glass to get the true ‘snowball‘ feel. As I like mine a little weaker I added 1/2 part of advocaat to 1/2 of lime squash and then fill the rest of my glass with lemonade. This version of the classic snowball is more of a fizzy lemonade beverage rather than the creamy one it can be if you add more advocaat but that is because I prefer it this way. To decorate it I dipped the rim of the glass into sugar to give it a frosty effect! You can do whatever you want to decorate your drink and perhaps a slice of lime or a stick of cinnamon would be nice too!
I hope you have enjoyed this post. I didn’t want it to be a precise recipe because I find that when your making drinks it is more of a case of how strong you want it to be on personal preference. Let me know if you give it a go but don’t forget to take a snap of it!
