“A Merry Christmas, Bob!” said Scrooge with an earnestness that could not be mistaken, as he clapped him on the back. “A merrier Christmas, Bob, my good fellow, than I have given you for many a year! I’ll raise your salary, and endeavor to assist your struggling family, and we will discuss your affairs this very afternoon over a bowl of Smoking Bishop, Bob!”
- 6 Seville oranges (if Seville oranges aren't available, use 5 sweet oranges and one yellow grapefruit)
- 36-40 cloves
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 quart strong red wine
- 1 bottle ruby port
- cinnamon sticks
So, if you plan to serve Smoking Bishop Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, you need to get on the stick and get those oranges, spices, and wine doing their magic. They need to brew at least 24 hours. Let me know how yours turns out. I'm feeling merry just thinking about it. Cheers!
