How 'bout throwing back a few SNOWBALLS with me?

22 comments /
Although we saw a light coating of snow a couple of weeks back, that quickly disappeared and we've been enjoying quite a bit of an Indian Autumn!? here in Northern Indiana this year.  It's almost unheard of to be snow-less the week of Thanksgiving...not that I'm complaining.  Give me a couple of weeks of snow in December and I'm all good.  I used to love it as a kid, but once you have kids to start worrying about...or rather the road conditions and other drivers...it loses some of its sparkle.

I'm just fine with kickin' back with a few of these Snowballs!  Eggnog, rum, and lemonade mixed together in a glass to form a "grown-up ice cream soda"...adapted from a Nigella Lawson recipe.  Head on over to Cocktail Puppy where I posted the recipe...join me in throwing back a few Snowballs!

  7. you know I would be there with you baby if i could! I always find it funny how in cocktails, things you wouldn't necessarily think go well together work perfectly! egg nog and lemonade? does it curdle? probably tastes awesome! Enjoy your no snow weather, but I hear the cold is creaping in! hugs! Alex

  8. ...Sometimes cocktails for breakfast is just what we need- cheers ladies!!! :)

    Alex...it does that little curdle-thing....kinda like a baileys & cream or a white russian...a good curdling effect!!! Does that make sense???

  9. once...in vienna...i was at a coffee house and ordered a snowball--which i thought at the time was a dessert--but it was a very strong alcoholic beverage---not nearly as appetizing as yours sounds! i'd be happy to toss a few of these back :)

  18. What a beautiful sounding drink. Same here in Denver. We've had no snow. I love our big snows and what's nice here, at this altitude, as soon as the sun comes out the big melt starts.

  19. We had a slight covering of snow about 2 days ago and since it is COLD it is still here. No snow at Thanksgiving makes it easier to travel the roads. That is one thing to be thankful for. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving BBFF.

  22. Having spent the first 32 years of my life in Florida, I am still a kid when it snows here in TN.

    But these snowballs look like you could enjoy them all year 'round.
