Homemade Advocaat – A Dutch Liqueur

Home Made Advocaat

My love of Advocaat comes from an old family friend who is like a father to me.  He is Dutch and use to drink Snowballs only at Christmas time.  I was allowed to have one as a teen and only at home of course.  I still love them and they always make me remember my childhood Christmases.

Unfortunately commercial Advocaat has food colouring so I have to make my own.  Advocaat is a strong Dutch liqueur, it can be sipped straight, but I prefer it made into a Snowball ( recipe at bottom of post.)

Place over boiling water,  add the gin and cook stirring constantly.  Cook your Advocaat until it thickens about 10-15 minutes.

Pour into a blender and mix.  Pour into a bottle.

Storage

Advocaat  can be stored for up to a month.   Although easily recognizable by its pretty yellow colour I have made an Advocaat Label.
