After the cut off date, but this is a drink for really cold evenings
when you have been outside for a day or so in dark february anyway. 

Melt sugar in a saucepan. About two large tablesppons per cup on a very
slow fire, it will turn dark golden brown. Then poor milk on top, the
melted sugar will instantly solidify and crackle fiercely, keep stirring
with a wooden spoon, letting the milk boil up to the top of the sauce
pan, this ensures all the caramel will have dissolved. Put in cups and
top up generously with cognac/brandy. Mmmmmm.
