Snowball Flight at Original Sin

For years when it comes to Christmas time, out of the cupboard comes a bottle of Warnicks Advocaat to make the classic Snowball cocktail. This year, the age old taste of Christmas is being dragged up to date by Ali Burgess, the owner of Original Sin in Stoke Newington. This Christmas, they’ll be serving their sinful Snowball Flight! A trio of newly created cocktails based on the classic Snowball to bring you a real taste of Christmas.

The Snowflake features Warninks mixed with gin, maraschino liqueur, topped with cava and lemon juice. This sparkling cocktail is a lighter rendition of the classic and an ideal contender for pre-dinner tipples or New Year’s cheers.

The Garland mixes Warnicks, amontillado sherry, spiced rum, topped with ginger ale and garnished with candied ginger. Advocaat, along with notes of raisin and nut from the rum and the sherry, creates a Christmas pudding flavour with added ginger ale for that underlying spice. It’s Christmas cake in a glass.

The Saint Nick is a delicious blend of Warninks, Calvados, triple sec, fresh lemon juice, topped with mulled Breton cider, a Christmas cinnamon rim and garnished with a zesty orange disc. A collision of two classic wintery drinks; the Saint Nick is the classic Snowball meets mulled cider, sure to be this year’s go-to toasty tipple.
