    Snowballs!

    Post by Poggy on 20/12/2015, 12:04

    Whilst shopping in Aldi, I spotted their version of Advocaat and just fancied trying it. I've not had it since I was about 14 I think!

    The girls both pulled a face when they saw it and I told them what it was made of, so I prepared myself a snowball.
    I let them have a taste and five minutes later we are all sitting there sipping this retro cocktail!!
    They *loved* it and it was just how I remembered it.

    Only £4.99 in Aldi too!

    I can see me having to buy another bottle before Christmas!

    rofl 'Hairy Santa'!!!

    Advocaat is a bit like thickish, alcoholic, creamy custard. It is, I believe, eggs, brandy and sugar.

    I quite like it in a shot glass on its own, but a Snowball is simply advocaat and lemonade. You can add a squeeze of lime too which we are going to try this evening.

    Mark described it, when he had a sip, as like drinking Refreshers!!

    We put a dash of vodka in ours with the lime too, as I am always looking for ways to add more alcohol to things xx

    T'was lovely with the lime!

    lol 'Ads for adding more alcohol!!

    I would like another glass, but have to pick Sophie up at 8.30, so won't have one until I have done that.
