Sack Posset-A Sherry Party Beverage

My father loved Dry Sack sherry. Our neighbors often gave him a new bottle every Christmas. That bottle would last more than the year…my father didn’t drink often. But it always struck me as something so sophisticated. I still have one of those bottles of Dry Sack in my house. My father drank his neat…but the following is a traditional English drink…at least according to the Osterizer Holiday Ideas cookbooklet from 1964. It will certainly be a frugal way to serve alcohol at your next retro party.

Sack Posset

3 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs
1/2 cup sherry

Put all ingredients except sherry into OSTERIZER container, cover and process at Lo until well mixed. Pour into a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Add sherry slowly, stirring constantly. Serve warm in mugs or punch cups, or chill before serving. Yield: 8 1/2-cup portions.
