Posset:  A posset (also spelled poshote, poshotte) was a British hot drink of milk curdled with wine or ale, often spiced, which was popular from medieval times to the 19th century. The word is mainly used nowadays for a related dessert similar to syllabub. In the Middle Ages, it was used as a cold and flu remedy and was more of a drink than a mousse.

To make the drink, milk was heated to a boil, then mixed with wine or ale, which curdled it, and the mixture was usually spiced.

It was considered a specific remedy for some minor illnesses, such as a cold, and a general remedy for others, as even today people drink hot milk to help them get to sleep.

Smoking Bishop: is a type of mulled wine, punch or wassail. It was especially popular in Victorian England at Christmas time and it appears in Dickens' story A Christmas Carol.

Smoking Bishop was made from port; red wine; lemons or Seville oranges; sugar and spices such as cloves. The citrus fruit was roasted to caramelise it and the ingredients then warmed together. There is a persistent myth (wholly unsubstantiated) that the name comes from the shape of the traditional bowl, shaped like a bishop's mitre, and that in this form, it was served in medieval guildhalls and universities.

Teh talua or teh telor is a tea beverage from West Sumatra. The tea is unique because of the use of egg yolk in its preparation. Chicken or duck egg can be chosen for the tea. Other ingredients, in addition to tea and egg yolk, are sugar and calamondin.

A traditional method of preparing this drink is: stir the egg yolk and 2 spoons of sugar in a glass, until a batter has developed. Pour 1 spoon of boiling water onto the tea powder. Pour the tea into the batter and stir. Add calamondin according to taste.

Hot toddy recipes vary and are traditionally drunk before going to bed, or in wet or cold weather. Some believe the drink relieves the symptoms of the cold and flu — in How to Drink, Victoria Moore describes the drink as "the vitamin C for health, the honey to soothe, the alcohol to numb" — see National Hot Toddy Day
