Also called advocatenborrel, this Dutch liqueur is made with eggs, sugar and brandy. This has a custard like flavor and can be thought of as Dutch egg nog. You can make it yourself! Here is a recipe from Serious Eats:Fill a 'medium' saucepan with 1 inch (5cm) water, bring to a simmer over high heat (we are setting up a double boiler). In the mean time, whisk 10 egg yolks with 1/2 tsp salt, 1 1/3 cups sugar, 1/8th tsp cinnamon until the mixture falls from the whisk as ribbons. About 4 minutes. Slowly pour 1 cup of brandy into the egg mix, while whisking. Place this bowl over the saucepan, whisking continually until the mixture is thick enough to form a coat on the back of a spoon (~8 minutes). You should reach about 55C (130F). Remove from the heat, whisk in 2 tsp vanilla extract, then place all in a sealable container. Enjoy!
