Advocaat, a Dutch delicacy
Made with yolks, sugar, brandy and vanilla. It is really easy to make and truly delicious! It is like Eggnog but flavoured with vanilla and without nutmeg.
Did you know that the word “brandy” comes from the Dutch word “brandewijn” which means “burnt wine”.
Nice to make for Easter, but hey, do we need an excuse to make a brandy liquor?
