Cape Cod Cape Cod Leather Throats

Richardson Wright, a retired editor of House and Garden, once wrote in a Cape paper:

Our New England ancestors must have been tough old codgers with throats of tanned leather. Here are three drinks they used to pour down them:

1. Creamed Flip: made of equal parts of rum, strong black molasses, and dried pumpkin into which a red-hot poker was thrust to make it foam and bubble and impart the favorite flavor.

2. Scotchem: apple brandy, boiling water, and a generous dash of mustard.

3. Mumbo: rum, water, and loaf sugar.

Any cold night try one of these. Then go straight to bed and dream about your hardy ancestors.
