Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


Vodka is the spirit backbone of the Snow White cocktail, lending a clean and neutral canvas for the other flavors. A 1.5oz pour strikes a balance - not too boozy, not too tame. Skip it, and the drink loses its kick; too much, and you're on a sleigh to Drunktown! Alternatives? Try white rum for a bit sweeter, tropical twist.

White Chocolate Liqueur

This liqueur provides sweetness and depth with a creamy texture. 1oz is just enough to taste without overshadowing the vodka. Without it, you'd lose the signature flavor. A different liqueur? Hazelnut could work, but you'd be in Nutella territory then.

Cream gives the drink a luxurious feel, incorporating smoothness and velvety body. 1oz makes it rich without turning it into a milkshake. Forgo the cream and you'd be sipping a rather sad, watery affair. A dairy-free alternative? Coconut milk could add an exotic spin.

White Chocolate

For the final garnish! This is the snow on Snow White's cocktail, bringing a touch of elegance and extra chocolatey goodness. Missing out? It's like Cinderella without the glass slipper - still nice but not quite magical. Swap it with dark chocolate shavings, and you've entered the dark forest.

In case you forgot basics how to make Snow White

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
