Some of you will remember the snowball and others will be asking, “what is it?”
The Snowball was a highly fashionable drink back in the 60’s and 70’s, especially around the festive period. Every party you attended would be flowing with the Snowball Cocktail.
The base ingredient of the Snowball is Advocaat. Dutch liqueur made with brandy, sugar, and eggs. It originates from a Dutch word, short for advocatenborrel and translates ‘drink that lubricates the throat of a lawyer’ or ‘lawyer’s drink.’
A Dutch equivalent to the traditional Eggnog thats highly consumed in the USA this time of year.
Advocaat with its deep rick colouring and flavour tastes like a creamy custard with a touch of Brandy. Often called “Dutch eggnog,” Advocaat only uses the egg yolks, where as The USA Eggnog uses both egg yokes and egg whites.
