RED EYE GRAVY

A ham gravy made using drippings from fried ham, adding water and frequently coffee.
 

A story on the origin of Red Eye Gravy:
Andrew Jackson, American General and 7th President asked his cook to prepare lunch. The cook had been drinking corn whiskey the night before, and his eyes were red. General Jackson told him to fix him some country ham with gravy as red as the cooks eyes. Others overheard this, and ham gravy became known as Red Eye Gravy from then on.
