Seat belts on, Snowball Flight incoming
Being a resident of Stoke Newington, I have had the pleasure of visiting Original Sin once before for a spot of pool in the dimly lit venues basement which oozes cool vibes and staff who present the quirkiest yet great customer service.
I would go as far as saying it’s a best kept secret of the area.
At Original Sin in Stoke Newington, Warninks have a stunning Snowball Flight on offer for the Christmas period, giving you the chance to have three different twists on the classic snowball cocktail.
After all, it wouldn’t be Christmas without Warninks!
Due to the recent weather, I thought this would be a great hook to try a Snowball (festive cocktail!), each made with Warnicks original Advocaat.
The Snowflake features Warninks mixed with gin, maraschino liqueur, and topped with cava and
lemon juice. This sparkling cocktail is a lighter rendition of the classic and an ideal contender for pre-dinner tipples or New Year’s cheers.
Up next is the Garland made using Warninks, amontillado sherry, spiced rum, topped with ginger ale and garnished with candied ginger, Advocaat, along with notes of raisin and nut from the rum and the sherry, creates a Christmas pudding flavour with added ginger ale for that underlying spice – it’s Christmas cake in a glass but also a little sickly after one glass. I put this down to the heavy mix of various flavours.
Finally, warm those cockles with something hot. Enjoy the Saint Nick, a delicious blend of Warninks,
Calvados, triple sec, fresh lemon juice, topped with mulled Breton cider, a Christmas cinnamon rum and
garnished with a zesty orange disc.
A collision of two classic wintery drinks; the Saint Nick is the classic Snowball meets mulled cider, sure to be this year’s go-to toasty tipple with a hit of fizz.
