It's a Scottish take on the popular English dessert 'Eton Mess,' with a few changes here and there. It's a popular pudding-like dish made with whipped cream, honey, fresh raspberries, and soaked oats overnight. Not only that, but this dessert is made more unique by the fact that it is always topped off with a scotch whiskey! Is there anything else we could ask for?
