Richard James teams up with Dickie’s Bar & Adnams to reinvent classic cocktail Savile Row house Richard James has teamed up with Mayfair locals Dickie’s Bar and Adnams to reprise the classic ‘70s Snowball, giving it a 21st century zing. The trio are extending an open invitation to Christmas shoppers to drop in at Richard James at 29 Savile Row on 5th December, between 5 pm and 8 pm, to try the cocktail and celebrate it’s debut. The Richard James Snowball will then feature on the drinks’ menu at Dickie’s Bar throughout the festive season. Christmas shoppers will be able to enjoy the added bonus of a special 20% discount on purchases made on the evening.
Says Richard James.
We thought it would be fun to get together with our friends at Dickie’s Bar and Adnams and reinvent the snowball, that most classic if démodé of Christmas cocktails, in the image of Richard James.
“What we have come up with is something that looks like a snowball of yore, but is fresher, altogether zestier and just a lot more now. “We decided against using advocaat, but have retained that element of egginess with the lemon curd. And I love the crisp and even meringue on top! “It’s a delicious drink that takes me back to cosy family Christmases in front of the fire in Wales. Cheers! And Happy Christmas!”
“By the way… What’s the difference between a snowman and snowoman? Snowballs!
