Aqua Mirabilis A Very Fine Cordial

(Wines, Cordials, Liqueurs, &c.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)







Three pints of sack, three pints of Madeira, one quart of spirit of

wine, one quart of juice of celandine leaves, of melilot flowers,

cardamom seeds, cubebs, galingale, nutmeg, cloves, mace, ginger, two

drachms of each; bruise them thoroughly in a mortar, and mix them with

the wine and spirits. Let it stand all night in the still, closely

stopped with rye paste; next morning make a slow fire in the still, and

while it is distilling keep a wet cloth about the neck of the still. Put

so much white sugar-candy as you think fit into the glass where it

drops.
