Your nan's favourite festive tipple has been given a rebrand... prepare yourself for snowballs in a can.
It's not just disco-inspired fashion that is making a comeback, classic 70s tipple Advocaat is also enjoying a resurgence.
The bright yellow Dutch liqueur, which is made from egg yolks, brandy, sugar and vanilla, is back on the drinks menu with a series of exciting new twists on the Snowball cocktail, traditionally a mix of Advocaat, lemonade and fresh lime - and a newly released ready to drink mix in a can.
Yes, you can now get a Snowball to go - and with a RRP of £1.80 a can, it's ideal as a Secret Santa gift, too.
For people who enjoy building their own Snowball from scratch, Advocaat manufacturers Warninks have released a new twist on the retro favourite.
Create a Posh Snowball by adding cloudy lemonade rather than the usual fizzy, then add a rolled scoop of vanilla ice cream to create a real ‘snowball’ effect. They also suggest trying a Snowball Fizz, blending, Prosecco, a dash of vanilla syrup, and Advocaat.
