Criterion Milk Punch
AMERICAN AND OTHER DRINKS.
CRITERION MILK PUNCH.
Put the following ingredients into a very clean pitcher:-- The juice of three lemons, the rind of two lemons; one pound of pow- dered sugar; one pine-apple, peeled, sliced, and pounded; six cloves; twenty coriander seeds; one small stick of cinnamon; one pint of brandy; one pint of rum; one gill of arrack; one cup of strong tea; one quart of boiling water; the boiling water to be added last. Cork this down to prevent evaporation, and allow these ingredients to steep for at least six hours, then add a quart of hot milk and the juice of two lemons. Mix and filter through a jelly bag, and when the punch has passed bright, bottle it and cork tightly. This punch should be iced for drinking.
