Advocaat is a kind of eggnog: a creamy liqueur based on alcohol, eggs and sugar.
The recipe was created by Dutch settlers from Suriname, where it was made on the basis of avocado.
Because this fruit was not available in the Netherlands, they would have replaced it with egg yolks to get the same smoothness.
Advocaat is made in 2 forms: a firmer shape intended to be eaten with a spoon and a more liquid form suitable for cocktails, ice creams, pastries...
This is my grandmother's recipe and it is the firmer form eaten with a spoon.
- 1 liter alcohol at 94%
- 1.5 kg granulated sugar
- 12 packets vanilla sugar
- 6 cans condensed milk Carnation 400 ml cans
- 24 egg yolks
- 4-5 empty bottles
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl
Pour into the bottles
The first days: shake the bottle well and open every day (exposure to the air thickens the drink)
From the 4th day, if you like the thickness, the bottles can be closed and the liqueur is ready for consumption
