After letting the hypocras marinate in the sugar and spices for 24 hours, I tasted the final results of the experiment. The combination of richness, sweetness, and spiciness has intensified, but not to the point of being intolerable. It very much had a kind of Christmas feel to it. Who knows? I might make this a drink for the Holidays. I will definitely include this drink in my fantasy book because it will be enjoyed by the filthy rich such as emperors or kings or barons.
