The original version of our eggnog
Did you know that the original form of today’s eggnog comes from South America? The European conquerors discovered a refreshing drink called “Abacate” in what is now Brazil. In this case, however, the original ingredient was not eggs but avocados. 🥑
The color green of the plant fruit, avocado, has nothing whatsoever to do with the yellow color of our egg liqueur. How did this miraculous transformation come about?
From avocado to egg
The colonial sailors began to refine the recipe with rum and cane sugar and called the result “Advocaat”. It was the Dutch who exported the Advocaat to Europe. However, one crucial ingredient was missing to make it at home: avocados. 🥑
Since avocado trees do not thrive in our part of the world, the search was on for something suitable. Eugen Verpoorten was the name of the clever connoisseur who, in 1876, included the yellow of the egg in his secret recipe as a substitute for the avocado. The family recipe is still cultivated today and the liqueur is exported all over the world. 🚢💛
