Snowball Cocktail Recipe

It is a classical brandy fizz cocktail, and it is perfect for any occasion – regardless of its name. The snowball is a mixed drink of brandy and ginger ale that is much like the popular gin fizz and may have been first published in 1899 in “Applegreen’s Bar Book.” It is roughly similar to the popular gin fizz. As opposed to simple syrup, soda water is likely to have been the first ingredient in the first versions. Even though the egg white is optional, it is often found in classic cocktails and will give the drink a foamy top and a lush texture. As a result of the warmth of the brandy and frothiness from the egg white, this is a wonderful winter beverage. On the other hand, it’s also tall, refreshing, and so it’s a great beverage for summer as well. If you’re in the mood for an easy brandy cocktail that’s both stimulating and delightful, give this cocktail a try whenever it suits your mood.
