Let It Snowball!
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.
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!
