While the snow may not be flying here in Northern Indiana yet, that doesn't mean I can't throw back a few Snowballs! I remembered seeing the Domestic Goddess, Nigella Lawson make these on an episode of Nigella Express. She said they tasted like a grown-up ice cream soda. Ummmm....yes, please! Although the original recipe calls for Advocaat, I wasn't able to find any, so I just subbed in some eggnog and rum. It worked! It tasted just like an ice cream soda...all creamy and delicious and definitely a bit of "Christmas in a glass"! Let's hang out, Nigella.
adapted from Nigella Lawson's Nigella Express
1 part Advocaat I used a storebought eggnog spiked with a good deal of RUM
3 parts chilled lemonade I used an effervescent one...very nice
squeeze of lime juice to taste
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the advocaat or eggnog and rum and top off with the lemonade. Spritz in the lime juice to taste.
Whaddaya say? Want to come over and throw back a few Snowballs?
