Vital update! It turns out that Advocaat is a generic term for egg liqueurs! The term is Dutch, because these are the folks who first thought of blending brandy and eggs to get a kind of alcoholic egg nog. Anyway, the pointer below is not to the authentic dutch brand which we were looking for (and which I cannot find online) but to a German advocaat. I've also mangaged to find an estonian version while I was surfing.

Woke up in the middle of the night again and couldn't fall back asleep. At least yesterday [livejournal.com profile] taxlady and I did some propper grocery shopping for the first time in well over a month, and we now have some creme de cacao which makes a wonderful nightcap called a chocolate cow (which is just a shot of creme de cacao in a glass of milk, a sort of alchoholic chocolate milk), which I am about to go and have some of. That should help me fall back asleep.

We also looked for
Advocaat which is an egg liqueur and Cherry Herring which is a cherry liqueur, but the SAQ (the local booze monopoly) doesn't carry either.
