In the Middle Ages, posset was a warming drink made from hot milk, wine, sugar and spices. Over the centuries, this drink has evolved into a popular dessert in Ireland. These individual possets set up like panna cotta after a few hours in the refrigerator. Garnish each glass with fresh raspberries, powdered sugar and mint sprigs. The posset is traditionally served with pound cake and shortbread cookies.

- 1 2/3 cups superfine sugar
- Juice of 3 lemons and 2 limes or 4 lemons

Bring cream and sugar to boil in large stainless steel sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in lemon and lime juices.
