Vegan Snowball Cocktail

‘Tis the season to be merry, but after a long day of standing in the kitchen preparing gingerbread cookies, wellingtons and whatnot, I’d rather just kick up my feet and enjoy this vegan snowball cocktail!

This creamy vegan snowball cocktail will have your guests be merry and bright in just one sip! This is a vegan variation on the traditional snowball cocktail made with Advocaat. For those who don’t know, Advocaat is a traditional Dutch alcoholic beverage, but it has eggs in it, which means Advocaat is not vegan.  In this vegan snowball recipe, the vegan vanilla custard and brandy substitute the Advocaat.

With two cocktails blurred in the front, the focus is on the package of Oatly Custard. In the background are two Christmas crackers and some fairy lights. The photo has a Christmassy feel to it.

If you’re not into alcohol, just make it a mocktail simply by leaving out the brandy.
