Oatmeal Possett

Oatmeal Posset

A "posset" is a hot drink of milk with various additions as a remedy for a cold.
But whether you have a cold or not, any drink with honey and whisky has to go down well!


One UK pint milk (20 fluid ounces or 600ml or two and a half US cups)
Half ounce (15g or 2 tablespoons) medium oatmeal
Quarter teaspoon (15g) salt (optional)
2 teaspoons (10ml) clear honey
1 tablespoon (15ml) whisky
Grated nutmeg or cinnamon sticks to taste


Add the oatmeal and salt to the milk in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
Remove from the heat allow to stand for ten minutes.
Strain the liquid into a clean saucepan, pressing the oatmeal to extract as much liquid as
possible, discarding the oatmeal at the end. Stir in the honey and grated nutmeg plus the
whisky. (I added more though)
Reheat until it is almost boiling and serve immediately in mugs.

If using cinnamon sticks you can stir your drink just before drinking and get a lovely flavour

The original recipe was from another site and I have adapted it to my taste.
