  • 8 pounds of loaf-sugar
  • 3 pints of water
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 wine glasses of orange flower water


Powder the loaf-sugar, and wet it with the water and the eggs well beaten with their shells. Stir the whole mass very hard, and boil it twice over, skimming it well. Then strain it, and stir in the orange flower water. Bottle it, and use it for a summer draught, mixed with a little lemon juice and water; or you may sweeten punch with it.
