Cariadoc asked:
<<< The cordial was brandy based, with fresh ginger, honey, white  
pepper, clove
and cinnamon, considerably less of the latter three than the ginger.  
It was
very smooth, and the undertones bloomed in the mouth after the swallow.

I've never looked into cordials--for one thing, they are forbidden for  
my persona. What sort of sources do we have for them? >>>

I don't think we have any specific recipes. This one sounds  
conceivably period from some of our previous discussions. It is the  
ones that use various fruits in them, that I think we've had more  
doubts on.

Some of our previous discussions on cordials can be found in this  
Florilegium file, and especially any evidence and documentation that  
has been mentioned.
