Clarified Lemonade


From "The Lady's Own Cookery Book", 1844


Ingredients 6 lemons 1/2 pound of sugar 1/2 pint of rich white wine 1 quart of boiling water 1/2 pint of boiling milk Instructions Pare the rind of three lemons as thin as you can; put them into a jug, with the juice of six lemons, the sugar, white wine, and boiling water. Let it stand all night. In the morning, add the boiling milk: then run it through a jelly-bag till quite clear.

Milk and lemonade and wine?! :eek: Those Victorians and their weird food and drink.

I could see the lemons and wine maybe, as I've enjoyed the Italian treat of Limoncello - it's an lemon liquor that is very refreshing and typically homemade by many who hail from the Naples region.

Lemon cello is refreshing.
