I always associate advocaat with Christmas as this is usually the only time that it gets drunk at our house. Warninks is one of the biggest producers of advocaat and they use an estimated 60 million egg yolks a year. The commercial drink is made from grape spirit, sugar, vanilla and usually an emulsifying agent. Advocaat originates in Holland although the idea for the drink is believed to have originated in Dutch Brazilian settlements where planters fermented a drink made from the fruit of the Avocado tree. When the planters returned home they were no longer able to use avocados so they changed the original name of the drink to advocaat and used eggs for the ... Read the complete review

Oh, okay, I know I shouldn't like it! At worst it could be considered to be alcoholic raw egg yolks....and at best it could be considered to be alcoholic custard - neither of which, in the cold light of day, sounds good! But, for some completely unknown and crazy reason, I find Advocaat strangely delicious and ultimately compelling. Every time I have drink it, someone wrinkles their nose at me in disgust and says "ugh..." - while others seem to remember that they like Advocaat and declare "Oh, I haven't had that for ages!". In that way, I think its somewhat like Marmite - but I do find it odd how this Dutch never really seems to have gripped the ... Read the complete review

** Advocaat ** I have a love hate relationship with Advocaat. As a child I remeber my nan used to buy it a lot and was a big fan; being a naughty child you would of course always try to get a taste of whatever the grown ups were drinking that you were not allowed to have, but in the case of Advocaat I only got one sip and I loathed it. I also thought it looked like someone had dropped an uncooked eggo on the floor and left it for a few days :o) Then when I grew up my sister developed a liking for the stuff mixed with lemonade - a "snowball". I'd sometimes get offered a drink and I have to say I didn't mind it at all. But I ... Read the complete review

Advocaat may be something everyone associates with Christmas, but I ended up buying a bottle in July after being given a "100 Best Cocktails" book and seeing all the exotic mixtures Advocaat seemed to be in. Plus I was fascinated by its ingredients - eggs and alcohol. I mean, who thought of that? Who looks at some eggs and says, I could make a really great drink out of those?! Anyway, I'm reviewing specifically the Warninks brand of advocaat, as that was the only one available in my local Sainsbury's, but there are plenty of other (much cheaper!) versions out there too. Advocaat is a Dutch drink made from egg yolks, sugar, brandy, vanilla and ... Read the complete review

Given that it's the Christmas period and all, I absolutely had to pick up a bottle of Warninks Dutch Advocaat up. Generally I try to grab the cheaper £5 versions but they sell out SO QUICKLY before Christmas that unless you grab them in November, you don't really have a chance. I had to "settle" for the more expensive version, but it's worth the cost so I don't really mind. Advocaat is a gorgeous drink that blends egg, sugar and brandy in a lovely, yellow concoction. It can be drunk neat, but most people mix it with lemonade to form what is typically known as a "snowball". It tastes very nice and has always been a favourite of mine in the ...
