Charles Dickens and negus
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?
