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.
