This recipe is missing milk. Without it you're going to end up with a very short drink and certainly not enough to fill a jug!

Add cinnamon, and please please please don't serve it over ice. Just chill it Dark spiced rum preferred to brandy

An even easier recipe is : Mix a tin of ready made custard with the same amount of milk, then add 100 mls of brandy
