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.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the brandy, simple syrup and egg into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  2. Shake vigorously to ensure the egg is properly mixed.

  3. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass.

  4. Top with ginger ale.
