Hi Joyce and All,
An Athol or Atholl in pre-conquest England was a prince, probably the
prince in line for his father's crown. I think that Brose in this context
may be a form of the word ambrosia, but my dictionary says [perhaps
alternative of scottish bruis or broth, or French brewes] and then says a
chiefly Scottish dish made with a boiling liquid and meal.
Since your recipe is obviously a dessert type beverage, that is why I am
thinking of ambrosia which by one meaning from my dictionary is: something
extremely pleasing to taste or smell.
