How to make it

  • Mix the liquor first. Then separate the whites and yolks of eggs and add sugar to the beaten yolks. Mix well.
  • Mix well. Add the liquor mixture drop by drop at first while slowly beating the mixture.
  • Add the milk and cream and continue slowly beating the mixture.
  • Beat whites of eggs until stiff and fold slowly into the mixture.
  • Let set in a cool place for several days and taste frequently. If nothing else, the recipe is guaranteed to produce a genial host.
  • This is not mentioned in the original recipe, however, our family likes to top the cup with freshly ground nutmeg.
  • This is a nice write-up which discusses the history of the recipe which I found on another site.
