Recipe by Carol H

"This is the Dutch equivalent of eggnog and literally translated means "lawyer". This traditional Dutch beverage is always served during the Christmas season. Serve in a lovely glass and provide the guest with a small spoon for consumption of the beverage."

I haven't tried this reciepe by Advocaat is quite lovely. (Raw eggs and all...) It's best served over some really nice vanilla icecream! :-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the egg yolks, fine sugar and vanilla extract until the mixture turns a very smooth, pale yellow colour.
  2. The mixture will be quite thick in its consistency.
  3. Add the Brandewijn very slowly, keeping your mixer at the lowest possible speed.
  4. Completely incorporate the brandy into the egg mixture. Place the Advocaat into the top portion of your double boiler.
  5. Keep your heat on low and slowly, warm the Advocaat. Do not allow the mixture to pass the warm point.
