In the bottom of a cup, stir 1 1/2 ounces of mix into 2 teaspoons of batter. Fill with hot milk, stir, sprinkle with nutmeg.
- 1/3 Brandy
- 1/3 Light rum – e.g. Barbados
- 1/3 Dark rum – e.g. Demarara
Separate 6 eggs. Whip whites firm (it helps to add a sprinkle of Cream of Tartar) and set aside.
Beat yolks thoroughly. Add to them
- 1/4 teaspoon powdered cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Add as much powdered sugar as possible until too stiff to beat. (ca. 3/4 lb.) Then stir in beaten egg whites.
Stir before using.
Will keep up to a week if refrigerated.
