DIRECTIONS

  • Beat the egg yolks, salt and sugar until thickened and lemony in color.
  • Slowly trickle in the brandy, while still beating.
  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and warm over a LOW heat, continuously whisking. Do not boil.
  • The Advocaat is ready when it coats the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract.
  • Let cool.
  • Serve immediately, or cover & refrigerate until serving time.
  • Serve Advocaat in a wide brimmed cocktail glass, with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder.
  • Or, fold some whipped cream through the Advocaat to create a decadent dessert called Tokkelroom.
