A festive Advocaat and lemonade

At Christmas time, and Christmas time only, my family partake of a ‘snowball’ cocktail. It is a typical winter warmer made with the Dutch drink Advocaat. Advocaat is a blend of whisky, sugar and egg nog, all of which are good winter ingredients.

Mix equal parts of Advocaat and lemonade in a glass (we usually use a Paris goblet), stir then serve.

It’s simple and sweet and has a very distinctive flavour. The velvet texture of the Advocaat also contrasts nicely with the foamy lemonade layer on top. It’s perfect for when you’re opening presents, or after a large Christmas meal.
