The History Of Eggnog

Eggnog (also Advocaat, Avocat, Advocat) is an alcoholic drink from the group of liqueurs and is made from alcohol, egg yolk and sugar, among others. In the EU, eggnog has an alcohol content of at least 14, typically around 20 per cent by volume. In many recipes for private use, cream or milk are also added. In the trade, however, a product with cream or milk must not be labelled "egg liqueur" and must instead be labelled as "liqueur with added egg" or simply as "spirit".

Eggnog is usually consumed neat, for example as a digestive with coffee. The drinking temperature is usually between 10 and 12 ° C.
In the 17th century, European conquerors discovered what was called Abacate, a refreshing drink among the indigenous people of the Amazon in what is now Brazil. With the addition of cane sugar and rum, the drink made with avocados became Advocaat, which is considered the forerunner of today's eggnog. According to the manufacturer Verpoorten, the Antwerp-based company founder Eugen Verpoorten developed the egg liqueur in its current form in an effort to imitate this drink. Since avocados were poorly available in Europe, he used egg yolk instead. In 1876 he founded his company in Heinsberg near Aachen.

A similar drink, the Mexican rompope made from eggs, milk, vanilla and rum, was imported from Spain to Mexico and has been made therein Puebla in the Convento de Santa Clara since the 17th century. In English-speaking countries, similar Eggnog is particularly popular at Christmas time. (Translation fromıerlikör)
