"Rakvocaat" The Rakia Version Of Advocaat


Advocaat is a drink that is enjoyed by thousand of drinkers, but it is expensive to buy in shops. The ingredients of advocaat are very simple so I thought I would try and make my own home made advocaat with Rakia. After a few experimentations I have now come up with a perfect recipe for homemade advocaat. In my opinion it is as good as if not better than you can buy in the shops. What’s more you can adjust the quantities of the ingredients to suit you own taste.

I used home made rakia but there is no reason why you can us commercially made rakia which can be bought at relatively low prices. The eggs I used were village free range chicken eggs no more than 12 hour old, the fresher the better even though the alcohol and sugar preserves them once made.

The finished product is a real treat and gives another very attractive option to serve guests and of course something else to talk about.

Here is the recipe I have made up for this delicious advocaat or should I rename it Rakvocaat?

  • 750 millilitres Rakia
  • 8 fresh egg yolks
  • 30 grams sugar
  1. Beat the egg yolks and the sugar whilst over a pan of hot water. You should continue beating over the secondary heat until the mixture is thick and creamy. It could take up to 15 minutes for this to happen.
  2. Leave the mixture to cool for an hour or two.
  3. Add a few drops of rakia to the cool egg and sugar mixture whilst beating and continue to add small doses and beat until all the rakia has been added.
  4. Bottle and seal the now Rakvocaat and leave in a cool dark place for one week.
  5. Chill the bottle in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving cold with ice if you like it that way.
I will not give you a best before advice as the drink will disappear within a few weeks as your guest come back for more once it has been sampled. (Well that’s what happened to my first bottle!)
