Snow Ball Recipe


Collins Glass

Glass Guide- Collins Glass

The Snow Ball cocktail is a brandy cocktail that is similar to the popular Gin Fizz; hold the gin, add brandy. It is a classic cocktail and was likely to have first been published in 1899 in Applegreen’s Bar Book.

This mix is great as both a winter drink, because of the comforting quality of the brandy and the frothiness the egg adds, and as a summer drink due to its tall, refreshing profile.
