A colleague of mine found this in his office and I thought I would share it!

I'm not exactly sure who the source is - perhaps someone reading this can fill in the blanks? It doesn't seem to have been published online thus far.

No idea who the reviewer might be, but the author of the recipe is presumably this Serge Lang: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serge_Lang (well-known, at least in my day).

The recipe itself was quite illegible. Any takers on an interpretation?

Lang's Eggnog

1 bottle Remy Martin VSOP (Presumably any VSOP will do, but any lesser cognac will result in a correspondingly less smooth taste and is at your own risk!)
2 quarts milk
1 quart cream
1 pound sugar
1 dozen yolks of eggs, beaten
Mix the above well.
1 dozen whites of eggs, beaten stiff, fold into the above.

How does that add up to 7 gallons?

Presumably ostrich eggs and a Nebuchadnezzar of cognac are intended.



yo guys
