bragget - a drink made of ale and honey fermented together and spiced.


Whether it's honey mixed with ale then fermented (that is, mead with barley) or sweetened ale (that is, ale with honey), I can't determine from cursory searches -- some sources seem to thing it covers either. Regardless, in contexts it's treated as a variety of or alternative to mead. Dates from Middle English, where it was spelled both braket and bragot, from Middle Welsh bragod, from brag malt -- which goes to show the ale is a key component.
