In response to It is a spiked soup., written by Ann on November 23, 1997 at 11:14:28
] My Penguin edition of P&P says that it is:
] "made from meat stock, egg yolks, ground almonds and cream, and served with negus (hot sweetened wine and water) as a warming and intoxicating beverage at balls."
After thinking about this again, I think it more likely that the negus is not put into the soup, but drunk seperately. I don't really know why I interpretted it the other way. Oh, well.
