(n.) A Dutch liqueur made from brandy, sugar and eggs. This shelf-stable eggnog-like product is typically thick like pudding, custard yellow and under 20 percent ABV. Traditionally consumed as a chilled digestif with whipped cream (and eaten with a spoon), advocaat also is frequently used in making desserts such as ice cream or custards. It also makes an appearance in cocktails such as the Snowball. Though commercial versions can be hard to find, it is simple to make at home.
