Essence of Roman Punch for Bottling.
Take 1 quart of boiling syrup.
1 quart of brandy.
1 quart of Jamaica rum.
21 eggs.
1 lemon.

Beat the eggs to a froth with the juice of the lemon;
stir in the liquors; filter through felt or close flannel,
and add the syrup. Bottle for use. A little of this syrup in a tumbler two-thirds full of shaved ice, and well shaken, makes a delicious beverage.
