Hot Milk Posset - to help kids sleep



In Victorian England, children were allowed small glasses of wine at the dinner table. Alcohol was a traditional sleep aid for all ages back then. This posset was a classic drink that nannies gave to tykes that were having trouble falling asleep. Apparently it worked very well!

1/8 tsp almond extract
1 pint milk
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg white
1/4 cup dark rum
1/2 cup brandy

Heat in a saucepan the milk, lemon peel, sugar, and almond extract. When it begins to scald, remove from heat. Beat egg white and add in. Now add rum and brandy. Serve hot.
