Better Than Your Onion Soup

This is without question the best version of onion soup that I have ever tasted.

Ingredients
4 lbs. big yellow onions
1 stick butter
Pinch of salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 14 oz cans beef stock
1 14 oz can of water
½ cup red wine
¼ cup gin
French bread.
Gruyere (or good Swiss) cheese

Directions
1. Chop and saute yellow onions in butter until translucent.

2. Add salt (to taste) and sugar to onions and mix.

3. Add beef stock, water, red wine, and gin. Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes. Turn off stove and let stand 1 hour or more.

Ladle into bowls, cover with thin slice of toasted French bread. Cover that with lots and lots of Gruyere (or Swiss) cheese. Run under broiler until cheese melts.

Serves 8 or more
