Brupper is a meal combing breakfast and supper eaten in the middle of the night. The word is derived on the same principle as brunch, which is a meal in-between breakfast and lunch.
Traditionally, brupper includes gin and nachos, but may extend to party leftovers, crackers with cheese, or even just a bottle of vodka chilled in the freezer. Folk wisdom suggests that the combination of cheese and alcohol is an effective soporific.
Jane was having difficulty sleeping, so she got out bed and had some gin and cheese for brupper.
