The Snowball Cocktail is thought to have originated in Britain in around the 1940’s to 1950’s however it became very popular in the 1970’s.

As it’s name suggests the Snowball Cocktail is a classic Christmas cocktail. It gets its name from the dome of frothy white foam at the top of the drink – which occurs when you mix the ingredients together. To get its distinctive frothy dome, use a good quality lemonade and pour it at a consistent speed whilst lightly stirring to emulsify the liquids together whilst keeping the flow of carbonated bubbles from the lemonade.
