Snowflake Cocktail (Prosecco Snowball)
I’ve given the classic Snowball cocktail a modern makeover. Swap your lemonade for prosecco and treat yourself to a Snowflake cocktail!
Meet the “Snowflake”
We’ve all got fond memories of the retro cocktail, a snowball. Made with advocaat, lime cordial and lemonade its a wonderful velvety drink that tastes of Christmas.
But I think its time the snowball had a makeover…. a millennial makeover to be precise. I’ve spent the whole year fighting off the millennial “snowflake” stereotype but you know what, I am one. I am just one big, walking, talking millennial cliche.
In fact according to Buzzfeed I am 90% a millennial stereotype… That’s right… I do Buzzfeed quizzes. Such a typical lazy millennial…
Now what alcohol is more millennial than all others? Prosseco of course! So grab yourself a bottle or two and lets get to making a Snowflake.
Perfect for Christmas and New Year
Us millennials may get a bad rap for being lazy and self centred but we do know how to drink. This Snowflake cocktail is rich, creamy and oh so boozy. You might want to take it easy drinking these are they are much more potent than the classic Snowball.
I like to serve mine in a coupe glass rather than a high ball. It means you top it up with slightly less prosecco and so they aren’t quite as strong. However you choose to serve them, they are the perfect cocktail for Christmas and New Years Eve parties.
