Creme de Houx

I’m a lover of liquers and wines, and made it my business to sample every oddball drink I can find. I understand that the french produce a very odd liquer from Holly tree berries-called Creme de Houx. I’ve tried all my local liquor stores-nobodies ever heard of it-anybody ever tasted it?

Cream of ho?! I don’t think I could stomach that.

egkelly, where did you find out about this? I’ve never heard of it.

Holly berries are poisonous.
