Upgrading your Snowball and Using up your Advocaat

In today's blog, we're going to give you 3 simple ways you can spark new life into your Snowball Cocktail and then, we'll give you 3 fantastic Cocktails using Advocaat for when you get bored of Snowballs.

First up, the Snowball.

You know it's Christmas in the UK when you start to see Advocaat doing the rounds! (Not that you needed reminding, as we do have Christmas stuff out in the supermarket long before Halloween). Advocaat is our lazy version of Eggnog. It's essentially Eggs, Sugar and Brandy. Steve the Barman refers to it as Boozy Custard! But it's so cheap to buy here in the UK, which makes Eggnog rarely a thing. We've adopted Advocaat as our national Christmas Drink. It's a traditional favourite stemming back decades here in the UK.


To make the Snowball, It's just a simple blend of;

  • 50ml Advocaat
  • 15ml Lime
  • 100ml Lemonade
  • served in a Hiball glass over Ice.

But that's not to say we can't pimp it up slightly. So let's go!


To make the following Snowball Variations, make the Snowball as above, then add in the following;

Peach & Cinnamon Snowball


Strawberry & Gingerbread Snowball

Even More Festive Snowball



What Else Can You make with Advocaat?

Many people will easily get through a bottle of Advocaat (or 3) over the Holiday period making Snowballs. However, what if you like the odd Snowball, but are curious about what other delicious drinks you can make? Well, as always, we have you covered!

These recipes are slightly more in-depth than the Snowball, they will require a Cocktail Shaker of some description. But I promise you they taste fantastic.
