Norfolk Punch

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

Take four gallons of the best rum; pare a dozen lemons and a dozen

oranges very thin; let the pulp of both steep in the rum twenty-four

hours. Put twelve pounds of double-refined sugar into six gallons of

water, with the whites of a dozen eggs beat to a froth; boil and scum it

well; when cold, put it into the vessel with the rum, together with six

quarts of orange-juice, and that of the dozen of lemons, and two quarts

of new milk. Shake the vessel so as to mix it; stop it up very close,

and let it stand two months before you bottle it.

This quantity makes twelve gallons of the Duke of Norfolk's punch. It is

best made in March, as the fruit is then in the greatest perfection.
