Method

Take some fine ripe Rasberries, bruise them with the Back of a Spoon, then strain them through a Flannel Bag into a Stone-Jar. To each Quart of Juice, put a Pound of double refined Sugar, stir it well together, and cover it close; Let it stand three Days, then pour it off clear. To a Quart of Juice put two Quarts of White Wine, bottle it off, it will be fit to drink in a Week. Brandy made thus is a very fine Dram, and a much better Way than steeping the Rasberries.
