Bay Rum


  • 3/4 ounce of oil of bay
  • 1 ounce of loaf sugar
  • 1 pint of alcohol, 95 per cent
  • 2 quarts of new New England rum
  • 3 pints of rectified spirits, 60 per cent


Roll the sugar until fine and beat into the oil of bay, add the alcohol, then the New England rum and spirits. Let it stand for several days in a demijohn, shaking occasionally; then filter through blotting paper. The filters may be purchased at a druggist's. Care should be taken to buy the oil at a reliable place.
