FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What is Advocaat and how does it contribute to the taste of Shaz's Snowball?

Advocaat is a rich and creamy liqueur made from eggs, sugar, and brandy, with a smooth, custard-like flavor. In Shaz's Snowball, Advocaat adds a velvety texture and a unique sweet, eggy taste that complements the citrus notes from the orange juice and lime, enriching the overall flavor profile of the cocktail.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is Shaz's Snowball stirred and not shaken?

Shaz's Snowball is stirred instead of shaken to gently combine the ingredients without overly diluting the drink with ice, as shaking would do. Stirring helps to preserve the creamy texture of the Advocaat and maintain the clarity and aesthetic appeal of the cocktail served in a highball glass.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What garnishes work best with Shaz's Snowball to enhance its appearance and flavor?

A slice of orange or a twist of lime works well as a garnish for Shaz's Snowball, adding a pop of color and enhancing its citrus aroma. Additionally, a maraschino cherry or a sprinkle of grated nutmeg on top can complement the sweet and creamy flavors of the cocktail.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of Shaz's Snowball compare to a standard cocktail?

With an alcohol content of 3.45%, Shaz's Snowball has a lower alcohol content compared to many standard cocktails, which typically range from 10% to 20% alcohol by volume (ABV). This makes Shaz's Snowball a lighter, more sessionable option ideal for those seeking a milder drink.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

Can Shaz's Snowball be customized for a more festive touch during the holidays?

Absolutely! For a holiday twist, you can add a sprinkle of cinnamon or incorporate a splash of grenadine for a festive color and slight fruity sweetness. Swapping lemonade for ginger ale can also introduce a spicy note that complements the holiday season's flavors.
