The UK’s number one Advocaat brand renowned for its custard-yellow hue and velvety texture – is bringing back a taste of nostalgia this Christmas with innovative new serving suggestions for its iconic Snowball cocktail.


For drinkers across the country, Warninks is as integral to Christmas as roast turkey and Brussels sprouts. The legendary Snowball cocktail has remained a firm favourite, prompting fond memories of festive family rituals. Traditionally made with fizzy lemonade and a squeeze of fresh lime, the iconic cocktail has recently enjoyed a well-deserved renaissance, with everyone from celebrity chefs to influential bartenders singing its praises


As a result, this winter the Snowball is set for even more of a comeback, with a selection of exciting new makeovers. Taking the cocktail’s core elements: Warninks Advocaat, a fizzy mixer and a flavour enhancer; the brand-new Snowball recipes all use this winning formula…


Elevate a Snowball to a Posh Snowball by adding cloudy lemonade, then up the wow-factor by topping with a rolled scoop of vanilla ice cream to create a real ‘snowball’ effect. Finish with a simple sprig of Holly for a new Christmas-time classic.

The Snowball Fizz is pure Christmas in a glass. Featuring another festive staple, Prosecco, plus a dash of vanilla syrup, this delicious drink is finished off with a stylish garnish of lemon rind and an icing powder rim, for a beautiful snowy touch.


Coffee is the ingredient on everyone’s lips right now, and a match made in heaven with the rich custardy flavour of Warninks. Serve friends and family an affogato-inspired Italian Snowball, using fizzy cream soda and freshly brewed coffee. Half cocktail-with-a-kick, half boozy-pudding, this indulgent treat is ideal for festive parties and cosy winter nights.


On-trend finishing touches will take the classic Snowball cocktail recipe to new levels. For a playful twist, raid the cupboards and create a Custard Dream Snowball by adding cream sherry and garnishing with a custard cream biscuit for a delightful touch of whimsy. Other show-stopping serves can be easily created at home using garnishes such as mini meringues, or Christmas foliage including pine branches, holly and redcurrants dusted with icing sugar. 


This Christmas, the drinks brand is also launching the Snowball cocktail in a convenient, ready-to-drink can. Combining the perfect balance of ingredients, the new format makes it even easier to serve the ultimate Snowball every time. Great for adult stocking fillers, or to take to festive parties and events.
