A Snowball is a mixture of advocaat and lemonade in approximately equal parts. It may have other ingredients, to taste.[1]

It typically contains a squeeze of fresh lime juice, which is shaken with the advocaat before pouring into a glass and topping up with lemonade.[2]

If not wanting to make fresh advocaat, which typically consists of 1 egg, 30 ml of simple syrup, and 60 ml of brandy, for the cocktail, then it may be substituted by using a commercial version.[3]

In the United Kingdom, it is often sold in both pubs and supermarkets in small bottles of approximately 180 millilitres (6.3 imp fl oz; 6.1 US fl oz) (known in the pub trade as "splits") and is usually drunk as a "winter warmer".
