Christmas, Drinks

Snowball(s) + a Christmas play list!

No, I’m not talking about snowballs made of real snow (unfortunately), I am talking about the liquid, alcoholic kind.

The Christmas season is not the Christmas season without a snowball or two. One of the reasons they appeal to me so much is because they taste very similar to cream soda. Only this is grown-up cream soda.
