I’ve been making Christmas Retro Cocktails with Aldi. First we made this gorgeous yet weird creamy cocktail with Advocaat.
Disclaimer – I was gifted the cocktail supplies from Aldi
I will admit that as I write this that my knowledge of cocktails is very small. However when I get the opportunity to try new ones I am very happy to learn and taste more of them. Aldi is known for having an amazing alcohol selection which is constantly winning awards! This Christmas they have a fabulous selection including Vodka (wow it’s strong), Irish Country Cream (award winner and seriously good) and the blast from the past Advocaat.
Christmas Retro Cocktails
When I told my friends and family I had Advocaat everyone went ‘Wow’ and ‘How retro’. Then they all asked for a cocktail and those who had never tried one were very curious, I think mainly because of the colour. It seems like it’s an oldie but a goodie. The colour is certainly strong and rather festive. The most popular and well known advocaat cocktail is the Snowball and it is as fun as it sounds. It does contain egg but is made in such away you don’t notice it and it doesn’t have any of the egg texture.
I was asked by a friend to describe the taste and in my opinion I thought it tasted like creamy lemonade. I know that sounds odd but it was nice! It tasted very retro. It was festive and I’m certainly tempted to have another drink soon.
As you don’t need much per drink one bottle will last a while! The bottle costs £5.99 and is from Aldi.
I was sent the Aldi drinks to review. All opinions are my own.
Christmas Retro Cocktails – Advocaat
- 2 measures of advocaat roughly 50ml
- 1 measure of lime juice 25ml I used half a lime
- Top up with lemonade it is mostly a lemonade drink but make it to taste

- Pop all the ingredients into a shaker and give it a good shake and pour in a glass.
- If you don’t have a shaker you can mix it in the glass that works too!
