D.O.M. Leave Mums Without It

As far back as I can recall,  in Chinese homes, mums during confinement were “required” to keep themselves from all “wind & dampness”, and that demanded the best of the traditional goodness from Europe – the much venerated (or should I say, vaunted)  D.O.M. Benedictine herbal liquor.

A small cupful after dinner was almost mandatory.   All my female relatives who had children have experienced these “drinking sessions”.  The strange thing is : why do they trust this Western brew so much – can anybody explain ?

Anyway, it is not cheap.   But it does taste nice !
