A POWERFUL DROP, WHICH IS GUARANTEED TO PUT HAIRS ON YOUR CHEST-LADIES BEWARE! A CONCOCTION OF BEEF CONSOMMÉ AND VODKA; A CURE FOR A DECENT HANGOVER. YOU START TO FEEL BETTER WITH EVERY SIP…

Ingredients

  • 4 parts consommé [see below]
  • 1 part vodka of your choice [natural flavour]

    Method

    Cut up the beef and put it all into a big stockpot. Add 7 litres of cold water. Bring to the boil and carefully remove the scum that forms on the surface. Season with coarse salt (it is better to adjust seasoning at the end than to add too much at the beginning!). Add the carrots, turnips, parsnips, leeks tied in a bundle, celery sticks, onion, garlic, thyme and bay leaf. Simmer very slowly, so that boiling is hardly perceptible, for 4 hours. Remove the meat and very carefully strain the stock. Remove the surplus fat carefully. Pass through a fine sieve or muslin cloth. Use as required.

    To serve, reheat and add the vodka just before serving.
