Scottish Recipes: Het Pint

Het Pint (literally "a hot pint) was used as a warmer for "first-footers" more than a century ago. It was carried in a copper kettle and offered to everyone they met on their first-footing rounds.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 pints mild ale/beer
nutmeg
3 eggs
sugar to taste
pint whisky

Preparation Method:

Grind nutmeg into ale and bring to the point of boiling. Mix in the sugar (already dissolved in some cold ale) and eggs, taking care that they do not curdle. Pour in the whisky and bring the mixture nearly to boil. Then pour it briskly from one pot to another until the liquid becomes smooth and bright.
