Charles Dickens and negus

  • m

I went looking for recipes yesterday (CD's birthday) and found several, all basically mixtures of port, claret, burgundy, and brandy, with sugar and spices. Oh, yum.

But. I could swear I had encountered literary references to "gin negus". Am I just hallucinating? hitting the absinthe too hard? confusing myself?

Has anyone ever encountered a gin negus, or other hot gin punch?

  1. I've made something like that with Old Tom Gin, tea, ruby port, lemons and lots of 'baking spices'. It was very good.
