      Egg based drinks at Xmas are a tradition in Europe and this has been also carried to the New World. The Wordsworth Dictionary of Drink by Ned Halley states that Advocaat is abbreviated from the Dutch 'advokaatenborrel' or advocate's dram, taken to clear the throat while speaking in court. The U.K. consumes 3/4 of all exports.
      Matthew Rowley has a U.S. version which you might like to try -
