Hogmanay Het Pint
Grate a nutmeg into two quarts of mild ale brought to the boil. To a little cold ale add sugar and three well-beaten eggs. Mix slowly to the hot ale. Add half a pint of whisky and bring the whole to boil again. Pour briskly from one vessel to the other till smooth and bright. If you are rich enough to follow the Old Style you should use light wine and brandy instead of ale and whisky.
