 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   10                    Eggs
      1/2                Level teaspoon salt
  275       g            Sugar
    4       dl           Cognac
    1                    1/2 level teaspoons vanilla
                         -essence (extract, I think)
   Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with the salt and the sugar, until the
   mixture is thick and creamy. Beat in the cognac, very slowly and put the
   mixture into a double saucepan. Heat gently, whisking all the time until
   the advocaat is warm (not hot) and thick. Remove the pan from the heat and
   stir in the vanilla essence. Pour into a jug. Advocaat is served in a glass
   and eaten with a teaspoon.  It can also be topped with whipped cream.
   Also, might I add, that advocaat is nothing like the eggnog here in
   America...it is thick and creamy---not foamy at all. Boy, is Advocaat
   (I usually get a bottle of it from the Dutch-America store and skip the
   This delicious Dutch drink is actually eaten with a spoon!
