This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.
Here's one from Classic Liqueurs by Long & Kibbey. Advocaat translates loosely to "a drink for lawyers." One has to wonder if the raw eggs are there to poison them.
[The recipe in Long & Kibbey says first to put sugar in the blender (with a steel knife) and blend it, and then add everything else for 30 seconds. I must wonder if something is missing from that sentence, like "and eggs." One correspondent has suggested that the blender creates a super-fine sugar before the rest of the ingredients are added, but if that were so, they should have just listed the equivalent volume of superfine sugar. I have omitted the part that didn't make any sense to me, and offered the rest below.]
Put ingredients in blender, blend for 30 seconds or until mixed well. Pour into container, cap, and refrigerate. Age for 1 to 2 weeks to mellow. Color will intensify as it ages, reaching a more traditional light shade of yellow.
Variation: Substitute 1/4 to 1/2 cup brandy for same volume of vodka.
Note: Please be careful working with uncooked eggs.
