Advocaat is a creamy yellow liqueur made from a rich blend of egg yolks, sugar, brandy and a touch of vanilla. The Netherlands exports this drink to over 50 countries, but, shhhh, it's really easy to make your own at home as a Dutch (and may I say tastier) alternative to eggnog.

I call my recipe Advocaat of the Devil, because once you start nipping at this sweet nectar, you cannot resist the temptation to have more.

The Dutch prefer their advocaat thicker than you may be used to. So thick, in fact, that you eat it with a spoon. My advocaat can be enjoyed as is, or over ice-cream, in desserts, pastries and cakes. Cheers, or as the Dutch say, proost!
