Mithridate Brandy

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

Take four gallons of brandy; infuse a bushel of poppies twenty-four

hours; then strain it, and put two ounces of nutmegs, the same of

liquorice, and of pepper and ginger, and one ounce each of cinnamon,

aniseed, juniper-berries, cloves, fennel-seed, and cardamom seed, two

drachms of saffron, two pounds of figs sliced, and one pound of the sun

raisins stoned. All these must be put into an earthen pot, and set in

the sun three weeks; then strain it, and mix with it two ounces of

Venice treacle, two ounces of mithridate, and four pounds of sugar. This

is an approved remedy for the gout in the stomach.
