1 oz Highland Scotch
1 oz Honey
1 oz Cream
Instructions

Mix well, warm slightly to make smooth. Then cool and sample. Traditionally drank cold. Though there are rumors afoot that it is good also warm.

Never boil cream or milk. "Milk boiled is milk spoiled" runs the Scottish proverb.

History

Apparently a traditional Scottish potation.

Comments
Dan commented on 2/20/2012:

Curated slightly by changing to the Highland scotch ingredient. I removed (good) from the comments because all our ingredient are assumed to be good. I also changes parts to oz to size the drink reasonably.

That said, I question whether this would be drinkable with a 33% honey unless used to suppress a cough, which perhaps I feel coming on. ;)
