Title: Advocaat (dutch eggnog)
Categories: Ethnic, Beverages, Alcohol
Yield: 12 Servings
1/2 Level teaspoon salt
275 g Sugar
4 dl Cognac
1 1/2 level teaspoons vanilla essence (extract, I think)
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with the salt and the sugar,
until the mixture is thick and creamy. Beat in the cognac, very
slowly and put the mixture into a double saucepan. Heat gently,
whisking all the time until the advocaat is warm (not hot) and thick.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla essence. Pour
into a jug. Advocaat is served in a glass and eaten with a teaspoon.
It can also be topped with whipped cream.

America...it is thick and creamy---not foamy at all. Boy, is Advocaat
(I usually get a bottle of it from the Dutch-America store and skip
This delicious Dutch drink is actually eaten with a spoon!
